Coventry City winger Kyle Spence hopes to prove he is worthy of an extended deal from now until the end of the season.

The 19-year old Academy graduate signed a deal with the club until the end of the season and made his first appearance of the season against Sheffield Wednesday in the Under-21s on Tuesday.

The former Crystal Palace Academy player impressed against the Owls and almost won the game for the Sky Blues with a spectacular 20-yard shot which was tipped onto the crossbar in the final stages.

Spence spoke of his delight to get back on the pitch for the club and hopes to prove to the management staff at the club what he can do.

Spence said: "I'm buzzing. I was delighted to get back out on the pitch for the club and I thought I did really well.

"I still need to get myself upto speed and I'm sure with more training and more fitness, I can do better than I did today.

"It's going to be tough as I am behind a bit but I've got 10 games to try and prove to the management staff here that I can do it.

"I thought it was a good start but I know I've got to build on that and keep pushing forward now."

The Under-21s next face Sheffield United at the Alan Higgs Centre on Monday and Spence hopes to take more confidence into the next game.

He added: "It was a lot about confidence and I realised in the second-half that I've got the beating of the defender so I did it more often.

"If I take that into the next game, I'm sure I'll be able to help the guys win games. It was good to be playing with the likes of George Thomas, Ruben Lameiras and Devon today as I enjoy it.

"Training has been really good and I'm getting on with Lee Glover really well as well who has helped me ease back into the club.

"I want to try and prove myself in the Under-21s, maybe get on the bench or play for the first-team and earn myself an extended deal at the club."
