"The new manager has been great to work with and there is a great environment here." - Coventry City's Sanmi Odelusi

16 March 2015

The on-loan winger also believes City can win every game from now until the end of the season, if they apply themselves...

Coventry City winger Sanmi Odelusi has praised the new manager Tony Mowbray ahead of the midweek trip to Fleetwood Town.

The Sky Blues travel to 8th-placed Fleetwood Town tomorrow night in search of back-to-back wins following the 3-2 win over Chesterfield at the weekend.

It was Tony Mowbray's first win as Sky Blues boss as City closed the gap in the League One table to Notts County and Crewe Alexandra, just two points above the Sky Blues.

Odelusi, who netted his third goal in five games for the club, has praised the team spirit and the environment at the club.

The 21-year old said: "Since the new gaffer has come in, he's been great to work with. He's giving all the players an opportunity and there is a real buzz in training at the moment.

"Our style of play and what we did on Saturday is definitely closer to what the gaffer wants from us. I'm enjoying playing with this group of lads as well.

"There is a really good team spirit here and a really good dressing room. Everyone at the club is great, from the media people to the physios, it's a great club.

"There is a really good environment at the club and when you create the right environment, results will come like we saw on Saturday."

Fleetwood, managed by Coventry-born Graham Alexander, secured a narrow 1-0 home win over Rochdale at the weekend as they stay in touch with the play-offs.

Odelusi, who admitted he doesn't know much about Fleetwood, believes City can claim an important three points and build on the weekend's win.

He added: "I don't really know much about Fleetwood but I've heard they don't concede much and keep it tight at the back.

"It will be a tough game but I'm confident we can beat anyone in the league if we play to our standards.

"We showed at the weekend that we can score goals and that is something we struggled to do when I first arrived at the club.

"We can get three points in every single game from now until the end of the season if we work hard and we keep our standards high."
