“We could have killed the game off in the first-half, but the sending off changed things for us.” - Coventry City’s Lewis Page

22 August 2016

The City fullback turns his attention to Tuesday night as his side look to cause an upset in the EFL Cup...

Sky Blues loanee Lewis Page reflects on a difficult day for City up in West Yorkshire, citing the Jordan Turnbull red card as the turning point in the match.

The West Ham fullback has made a confident start to life in the Midlands, making his second appearance in Saturday’s League One clash at Bradford.

The 20-year old, drafted in because of his attacking prowess, got forward well and was particularly effective on the overlap down the left flank. He commented on the game and on the impact of fellow newcomers Daniel Agyei and Turnbull. 

Page said: “I want to perform for this team and everyone here wants to push for promotion. We haven’t had the best of starts but results will turn and we’re confident the goals will start flowing. 

“Bradford got themselves on top in the second-half and moved the ball well but it is always going to be difficult with 10 men.”

“Dan up front, very quick and very strong. Really made an impact and scored a goal. It was unfortunate for Jordan because he was playing well up until the penalty decision. He’ll be missed next game.”

Page has insisted that the squad are now focussed on the EFL Cup fixture on Tuesday evening, where the Sky Blues will face Norwich City in round two of the competition. The Championship side are currently unbeaten in the league, with two wins and two draws to their name. 

Page added: “Norwich in the cup on Tuesday, if we win that we’ll look to put together a good cup run. That always helps for momentum. 

“Once you lose a game you want to be at it in your next fixture so we’ll try and use that determination to get a result at Norwich. Once one win comes, I’m confident we’ll put a streak together. The games comes thick and fast in this league, and one win can change your whole outlook.”
