"You don't have a fanbase like that for no reason, they deserve something to celebrate." Coventry City's Reice Charles-Cook

Charles-Cook talks about the JPT and the camaraderie in the dressing room here...

Coventry City goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook wants to get as far as possible in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy to give something back to the Sky Blues supporters.

Charles-Cook is part of the squad travelling down to Yeovil tonight for the second round tie at Huish Park.

The 21-year old is keen for success in the competition as he believes the club is a "sleeping giant" and wants to get some success for the fans to celebrate.

"We want to give the fans the chance to celebrate something," the 21-year old said.

"It's literally a sleeping giant of a club, you don't have a fanbase and a stadium like that for no reason and they deserve something to celebrate and the JPT could provide that.

"Yeovil isn't the the nicest journey in the world! But we've got to go there, be professional with a win and carry on in the league. It's a competition we want to win."

The City stopper is enjoying life with the Sky Blues and believes the dressing room has a real togetherness about it.

Charles-Cook believes that is reflected on the pitch and is hoping that the camaraderie can maintain the Sky Blues' good form.

He continued: "I think I'm quite vocal in the dressing room, the lads also know when to reign me in! I like to say I'm the vice-captain of the team but a lot of players would say differently! Joking aside the changing room has been outstanding, we feel so together and that is showing on the pitch. 

"There's no seperation with the lads, it did get a little split last year but everyone's smiling, everyone wants to train and play the game. It's no suprise we are where we are now."
