"Every away game the fans have been class and made a difference, to get the win at that end was special." Coventry City's George Thomas

Read what the Sky Blues striker had to say about his assist and going out on loan here...

Coventry City's George Thomas was delighted to have a massive hand in City's winner at Fleetwood Town in front of the 1,100 travelling Sky Blues faithful.


Thomas, who came on with 13 minutes to play, was influential in the winning goal as he found half a yard of space on the edge of the box and hit a firm effort which Chris Maxwell parried against Richard Wood which forced the own goal.

The 18-year old, who made his sixth appearance of the campaign, believed City deserved the three points and added that it was extra special for him to do it at the end where the City away fans were gathered.

"I can't claim it can I!?" Thomas joked.

"Everyone's really happy and obviously I like to help the team out when I can.

"I do my best when I come on and I love playing, so to have a massive hand in the goal is a great feeling.

"I thought we dominated the play, there were a few spells where Fleetwood had the better of the play, they had chances to cross the ball but we deserved the win.

"Sometimes I find it harder coming on than starting a game! But it was a good chance for me to create an opening in the pockets of space - that's my game.

"Everyone is buzzing and the fans were outstanding. Every away game they've been class and made a difference, to get the win right in front of them was really special."

Manager Tony Mowbray has made it no secret that he wants to get Thomas some time out on loan to further continue his development.

The Wales Under-19 international says that he trusts Mowbray to make the decision which will benefit his career and is eager to prove himself whether that be on loan elsewhere or in the Sky Blues first-team.

Thomas added: "I trust the gaffer, he knows the game and he's been at the top level so whatever he thinks is best for me I believe in his judgement.

"Every chance I get here or elsewhere I'm eager to impress. If I am to go out on loan, I want to do well and come back to the club and make an impact, I enjoy it here."
