“I don’t want people to think our confidence is low, because it's not.”-Coventry City’s Romain Vincelot

22 January 2016

The midfielder says the squad remain optimistic moving forward...

Coventry City midfielder Romain Vincelot believes the team’s confidence has not been affected by recent results.

The 30-year old played the full 180 minutes in the 1-1 draw against Walsall and the 2-0 defeat against Burton Albion.

But ahead of the trip to Southend on Saturday, Vincelot believes confidence in the squad is still high.

He said: “I don’t want people to think our confidence is low because it’s not, we’re still only three points behind second place, so there is everything to play for.

“Its wonderful to be in this position, everyone comes into the dressing room smiling and hungry for the next game.

“There are still 19 games to go, so there are a lot of points to play for. Playing-wise, I think we might be the best team in the league. I don’t think we have been out-played once this year, so I am not worried about the squad’s confidence at all.”

Vincelot is likely to keep his starting berth against the Shrimpers on Saturday, and the midfielder believes victory is important after their first defeat in six games.

He added: “It’s about winning games, it doesn’t always have to be pretty.

“I think we have to concentrate on being efficient all over the pitch. We have to make sure we are consistent, obviously we are disappointed with the last game, but I think the reaction will be to go and win.

“If we go on a run, we can gain a lot of points and move above the teams above us. It’s about keeping the consistency we’ve had all year, if we have a good run we will be right up there.

“Southend have some good players up-front and at the back, but they have been concentrating recently on trying not to concede.

“In their last game against Peterborough, the team which has scored the most goals in the league, they manage not to concede, so it is going to be tough to break them down.”
