"I was nervous. The lads have just got to regroup and go again against Southend United." - Coventry City's Peter Ramage

20 January 2016

The 32-year old also believes he'll only get better after his first appearance for the Sky Blues against Burton...

Coventry City defender Peter Ramage admitted he was nervous before his Sky Blues debut on Saturday against Burton Albion.

The 32-year old started for the Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena in the 2-0 defeat against the Brewers with goals from Callum Butcher and Stuart Beavon.

The former Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Queen Park Rangers hadn't played since the end of the Indian Super League in November 2015 for Kerala Blasters.

Ramage admitted he was excited to make his debut and that he enjoyed being back on the pitch despite the defeat.

Ramage said: “I was nervous before the game for the first time in a long time but they were good nerves and I was excited to get back.

“I was excited to be playing at the Ricoh Arena and I’ve just been chomping at the bit since I was back, so I was very excited about it. 

"I enjoyed the game because even though it was a disappointing result it was just nice to be back in a game.

"It was ok. I was a bit rusty with a few things but that’s to be expected because I played my last game a few weeks ago now but I enjoyed it, enjoyed being back in the battle and felt I grew more confident as the game went on."

The Sky Blues are currently preparing for their trip to Southend United at the weekend and Ramage is sure City will bounce back.

He added: “We’re going to have results like this, hopefully not too many in the second half of the season, and the senior players will take on our responsibility.

“The young players have to remember how they got to this position. They are here for a reason because they have played well in the first half of the season and hopefully we can all recover, regroup and go again at Southend on Saturday.

"The squad just have to remember how well they've done up until this point and we just need to go on another run to get ourselves started again."
