"There is an option of a further year on my contract, I'm just hoping to impress." - Coventry City's Jordan Willis

Sky Blues defender revealed that there is an option of an extra year on his current contract but that the decision is not up to him…

Coventry City defender Jordan Willis has stated his desire to impress as he revealed that there is an option of an extra year available on his current contract.

Willis signed a two-year deal in 2012 but the 20-year old is looking to impress the Sky Blues management as he stated that the option to activate the extra year is not up to him.

The Coventry-born defender also revealed that he is happy with the amount of game time that he has received next season but that the team's position in SkyBet League One is too low to be able to call the season a success.

"I'm happy with the amount of games I've played this season," he said. "But as a whole it's not been good enough. So I can't say that I'm all that happy.

"We need to get out of this relegation battle with consistency, we've showed that on our day we can do well against anyone in this league.

"I haven't spoken about my contract but there is an option of a further year. It's not up to me, I am just hoping to impress.

"The Doncaster game was very disappointing, especially in the way we conceded our goals. We need another run of games where we pick up points.

"Those are the mistakes we need to get out of games, but when we do we will pick up results, I'm sure of that."

The Sky Blues face Peterborough tomorrow in League One and Willis is thankful of the rest the squad have had after not playing a midweek game for the first time in a month.

Tony Mowbray has had a full week of training with the team and Willis feels that this is something that has benefitted all parties.

He continued: "It's been good having the manager for a full week with no midweek game, it's been a relief to not have to worry about two games in a week.

"We've worked on areas we need to improve on and later on this week we have been working on how we approach Peterborough and shut them down as a team.

"We are a team that likes to play but we need to start playing football from the start and not allowing the opposition into the game.

"The funny thing about this league is that anyone can beat anyone. Taking points off the likes of Milton Keynes and Sheffield United is all well and good but we need to beat the likes of Peterborough and the big games around us coming up."
