The Sky Blues coach also believes George Thomas, Ben Stevenson and Cian Harries are edging closer to the first-team...

Coventry City Under-21s coach Lee Glover has praised a great week for the club as his side recorded a 3-0 win over Hull City.

The Sky Blues have picked up 12 points across the first-team and Under-21s this week with four wins; Millwall and Bradford City for the first-team, Brentford and Hull City for the Under-21s.

The Under-21s have impressed in recent months with four straight wins and are unbeaten since a 2-1 defeat against Birmingham City on Monday, February 29th.

Glover believes his side are getting the rewards for creating a number of chances during the game and says they deserve recent results.

Glover said: "It's been a great week for the club, both at first-team level and with the Under-21s.

"To be honest, without being over the top and keeping a bit of humility, we've played really well in recent games and deserved every win and point we've got. 

"We're creating a lot of chances which is pleasing for the players and the coaching staff. We've scored seven goals in the last two games this week but it could have been much higher with the amount of chances we created.

"George Thomas and Kyle Spence have been getting in great positions and at the moment, they're getting their reward. That gives them a great chance of being noticed."

Bilal Sayoud has impressed since joining the club from the Nike Academy in March and claimed another assist today, supplying the cross for Thomas to turn home.

Glover has praised the winger for his performances since joining the club and believes after a strong pre-season, he could get into the first-team picture next season. 

He added: "Bilal looks like a good prospect for the club, he's developing well and looks like he's got a chance of progressing into our first-team in the future.

"He'll be in the first-team picture during pre-season I'm sure and he's got to work hard at taking that chance. He's a 12-month project but he has got natural ability, pace and power so let's see where we can develop him to.

"There's a few in the team today who could get near it. George Thomas, Ben Stevenson and Cian Harries have progressed well and could be in the manager's thoughts. 

"It's important the players are picking up the results but also challenging themselves to improve their individual performances to get into the first-team picture."
