Coventry City defender Ryan Haynes says he knows what he needs to work on to get back into the first-team fold.


The 19-year old played his first game of the campaign, coming off the bench for the final few minutes of City’s 2-1 win over Burton Albion on Sunday.


Haynes is eager to prove himself to get back into the starting eleven and is confident he can work on improving his game while showing what he can do to manager Tony Mowbray.


"I was pleased to be involved against Burton, albeit for a short while," Haynes said.


"I just need to show what I can do and hopefully I'll get my chance again soon and I need to take it.


"We are doing very well and I think that shows by where we are in the table, it's been a very good start and we need to keep pushing on and keep the points ticking over.


"I just need to prove myself and get my chance. I know what I need to work on to get my chance I just need to keep showing what I can do and hopefully I'll get it, when it does come I have to take it."


Haynes was speaking after the Under-21s’ 1-1 draw with Charlton, where he netted a last minute equaliser to secure a point.


The full-back was delighted to earn a deserved point for the young Sky Blues side and believes the side showed excellent character against a physically more mature side.


He continued: "I was delighted to get the equaliser, I thought the lads put in a good shift, in the first half it took a while to get into the game but I thought we dealt with their physicality well and did extremely well to get a point.


"We showed very good character, we were pinned back quite a few times and to be able to deal with that is a very good sign. Even though we did concede we can take positives from it and with a very young backline."
