The City coach also praised the finishing ability of George Thomas and Kyle Spence after the 2-0 win over Watford...

Coventry City Under-21s coach Lee Glover believes Vladimir Gadzhev will be a good addition following his 60-minute performance against Watford.

The Sky Blues' Under-21s recorded back-to-back wins as George Thomas and Kyle Spence found the net against Watford to claim victory.

City's latest signing Gadzhev played an hour of the game as he builds up his match fitness having recently joined the club.

Glover has praised the performance and also Bilal Sayoud, who had to play at left-back against the Hornets but adjusted well.

The City coach said: "We restricted them to very few chances and managed the game brilliantly. I thought we were superb from start to finish. 

"I thought 2-0 flattered them a little. We had plenty of chances to score a third and a fourth which would have been nice for the group but very happy anyways.

"We had a good, strong side out today. As the season has gone on, we've had players return from injury and we've signed a couple of players which has really helped the group in training and in the matches.

"We had to play Bilal Sayoud at left-back today but I thought he coped well with the position. He got up and down well, and I'm looking forward to seeing him during the other matches.

That's now three games unbeaten for the Sky Blues as Glover went on to praise Gadzhev's debut and believes he'll suit the way City play football.

He added: "We spoke to all of the forward players recently to stress the importance of an end product because that is what you're going to get judged on at the end of the day.

"George Thomas and Kyle Spence both did well to find the net today by getting into great positions. All four of the forward lads contributed to what was a good performance.

"I thought Vlad did well. He pops it nice and simple, sees a pass forward and the way we want to play football, he looks like he could be a good addition. Judging on his technical ability, I think he'll definitely get up to the first-team."
