Coventry City goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook has praised the 'ruthlessness' of the City attack following the win over Crewe Alexandra.

The Sky Blues started the New Year off in style as Newcastle United loanee Adam Armstrong fired home a hat-trick in the first-half at Gresty Road.

Jacob Murphy added another two goals in the scoreline as City claim a fantastic 5-0 victory away from home to keep the pressure on at the top of the table.

Charles-Cook, who pulled off some impressive saves during the second-half, was delighted with the style of the victory.

The City keeper said: "I think that should send out a message to the other teams in the league. We haven't enjoyed our best spell lately but got our rewards today.

"It was important to score a few goals today as we've probably not taken our chances as well as we should have in the last few games.

"I thought it was great to see the forward players perform like they did today. They smelt blood and they were ruthless at the right times to give us the win.

"It's a great dressing room in there. We're all delighted and now we've got to focus on the next challenge."

The Sky Blues were heavily backed by 2276 City supporters and Charles-Cook praised the support from the Sky Blue Army.

He added: "I've said it previously but the support has been incredible. They show up in huge numbers everywhere we go.

"Especially through the Christmas period as they all traveled to Chesterfield as well. They don't just travel in large numbers but they really get behind the team.

"It makes a huge impact for us. We all feed off that type of support and if we can continue to get that, we could be in for a great season."
