Aaron Martin speaks to the Coventry Telegraph about the first win in five for the Sky Blues and his reintroduction to the starting XI...
Aaron Martin stood up to the test against Blackpool with his first clean sheet since returning to the side after a 3 month lay-off with an ankle injury.
Martin got injured on boxing day in the 1-0 win over Port Vale and has been sidelined ever since. The 26-year old defender was reintroduced against Shrewsbury Town midweek, in a narrow 2-1 loss but marked his return with a rare goal.
The ex-Palace man revealed that manager, Tony Mowbray analyses the performances of the City centre-backs particularly closely (having played there himself) and there is pressure to continually improve in the role.
Martin commented to the Coventry Telegraph after the game: “It was a very tough battle and that’s what we have got to start doing, fighting a bit more.”
“We are at the business end of the season now and we really have to keep going and grinding results out. Everyone stood up today and were proper men, which was good.
“The gaffer is always hard on the centre-backs because he played there and played at the top level and he demands from us at the back every week and if you are not quite there he definitely lets you know.
“In a way it helps you because you want to keep going and get to those top levels and that’s how he brings it out of you."
