“When you beat a side that was not only unbeaten, but won every game at home, it can only boost morale." - Coventry City's Gael Bigirimana

14 October 2016

Gael Bigirimana reflect's on City's victory at Port Vale and tomorrow's league opponents Charlton Athletic...

Midfielder Gael Bigirimana believes the Sky Blues’ win against Port Vale will have a big impact on the team as they prepare to face league newcomers the Addicks tomorrow. 

City gained their first three points of the season to end Vale’s 100% home record a fortnight ago, with goals from Marvin Sordell and a first for the club for Chris McCann.

The 22-year old hopes his side can make it back-to-back away victories in the league for the first time this term. He said: “It could have a big impact on our season because it gave us all a confidence boost.

“If you continue to not win the wall becomes higher and harder to climb, so it was vital we ended that record sooner rather than later. We can now concentrate on trying to put a few wins together and move up the table.

“When you beat a side that was not only unbeaten, but won every game at home this season, it can only help boost morale around the team. We know it was only one game, but we’ll try and continue that kind of performance.”

City have scored seven goals in their last three outings after coming under criticism for a lack of end product earlier in the season. The midfielder has been provider of a handful of goals this term, including the assist for Sordell's opener against Vale recently. 

“Hopefully we can keep it going. We seen against Northampton we have the ability to score goals, and very good goals as well. We have good individuals within the group who can all contribute in that regard. 

“Dan Agyei scored a tremendous solo goal and Ruben came off the bench to score a lovely chip, so we know we have the quality to continue it.”

He added: “It is great to see people chipping in with goals, and no matter who gets on the score sheet it will aid the team. Who knows, perhaps I’ll even score a few before the season ends.”
