The Sky Blues winger was pleased to get another win at the Ricoh Arena and acknowledged he has to remain consistent to keep his place in the side...

Coventry City winger Jacob Murphy admitted that he had to put in an improved performance in the 1-0 win over Chesterfield.

Murphy was substituted in the 54th minute during the 1-0 defeat to Scunthorpe, but was in much more impressive form this week at the Ricoh Arena as he got the assist for Adam Armstrong's winner.


The Sky Blues midfielder was delighted to put in a good display in front of 11,003 fans at the Ricoh and is eager to ensure his form remains consistent so he keeps his place in the team.

"It was a really fun game today," Murphy said.

"We created plenty of chances and the scoreline didn't portray the game, but we got the three points and that's all that matters.

"I knew I had to play well today, it's all about consistency, especially being on loan. I have to play well to stay in this team, it's full of talent and I know I could be out at whatever moment. I gave my best and it was a positive performance for me and the boys today.

"I know I didn't play well at Scunthorpe, no-one had to tell me I had a bad game, but I had to put it right today and it was a really good performance from us all."

The Sky Blues winger got the vital second-half assist for Armstrong which takes his tally up to four for the season.

While the 20-year old is eager to keep providing the goals, he also stated the importance of home form in the league and wants to see City continue their unbeaten run at the Ricoh Arena.

He added: "I do count assists! My mum does anyway! It's important for me to be getting them and it's a good feeling.

"I just looked up and saw Arma in space, he can deal with ball in tight spaces so I gave it him and he netted again which is great.

"There was a lot of free flowing football and the boys at the back gave it us to do our job so it was a good all round performance.

"I'm a bit gutted I didn't score myself, I want to catch Arma up! But the most important thing is the win, the home games are important. We like to put a show on for our supporters who deserve it after recent years."
