"I have a point to prove having dropped out of the football league." - Coventry City's Chris Stokes

12 March 2015

The on-loan Sky Blues defender is keen to make his chance at City count having been a mainstay at the back during his loan spell…

On-loan Coventry City defender Chris Stokes expressed his desperation to make his chance count at the Sky Blues, saying he has 'a point to prove'.

Stokes was once part of the Bolton set up, as well as playing for Crewe Alexandra in two seperate loan spells.

The 24-year old says that he is loving his time at City and that the confidence of the squad has not dropped too severely despite the fight to stay in League One.

"I'm really enjoying the experience, it's a massive learning curve and it's a big test but I'm just taking every game as it comes.

"I feel like I have a point to prove having dropped out of the Football League. No matter what game I play at the moment whether it is first team or 21s, I just want to give 100% and do the best I can.

"I'd love to stay and extend my loan and help the lads, but as of yet I haven't spoken to the manager about it."

City lie 20th in SkyBet League One and have a trip to Chesterfield on Saturday at the Proact Stadium.

Stokes believes that the squad are aware of the current situation and are confident that City will be clear of danger come the end of the season.

He continued: "Confidence is actually not that low, we're not getting battered and the boys think that they are nearly there.

"It's not gone for us so far during the time I have been here, but everyone is working so hard to turn it around.

"Some of the boys have had shooting practice today and I am feeling sharp, I haven't missed a training session and the Saturday-Tuesday games have got me up to full fitness."
