"I have always said that once it clicked it will take a lot for us to be stopped." - Coventry City's Ruben Lameiras

11 November 2016

City's Portuguese forward lays down a marker as the club prepare to host high-flying Scunthorpe United tomorrow...

The Sky Blues will lineup against division leaders Scunthorpe in tomorrow’s League One encounter, intent on maintaining their 14-game unbeaten home run.

While Lameiras is wary of the threat the opposition pose, he takes confidence from the mood in camp and the togetherness demonstrated in recent games.

Lameiras said: “The mood has been good, ever since Port Vale really when we got that first win. I have always said that once it clicked it will take a lot for us to be stopped.

“The boys have showed that no matter who comes in to the team, and who goes out we want to win games. No matter what Trophy or competition we want to win, and that has happened recently.

“We had a lot of players leave in the summer and a lot of players coming in, we struggled at the start but you can sense the mood now. We’re all together."

The 21-year old has now notched three goals this term, already bettering his 2015/16 offering, and his side can take confidence from the midweek result against Wycombe, coming from two down to win 4-2.

Lameiras added: “Mark has stripped it back and has got us doing the basics right. Moving the ball quicker and we’ve got a plan A and B now. I think everyone has bought in to that and he’s instilled a lot of confidence. 

“I have always said to myself that I need to score more goals, that is my target this season. We take the balls out after training and probably stay out there for too long really, but we want to improve everyday. 

“Personally, my confidence is growing every time I am on the pitch. I can tell a difference in myself. It is at home tomorrow, and there is a belief we can beat anyone at home.”
