"When you’re playing well & winning games it doesn’t take much motivation to go out there and perform." - Coventry City's Jason Farndon

25 October 2016

City's Under-23 side continue their impressive winning run against Crystal Palace in South London...

Jason Farndon was delighted to see the Sky Blues’ Development side continue their rich vein of form as the defeated The Eagles in the Development League South. 

Jack McBean and Devon Kelly-Evans both scored their seventh goals of the season, while George Thomas also got on the scoresheet as City ran out 3-1 winners. 

Farndon believes after a slow opening, his side dominated much of the game. He said: “We didn’t have the ideal preparation with only turning up 45 minutes before kick-off, but the lads were excellent.

“I think after a slow opening ten minutes or so we dominated pretty much all of the game, and also scored three very good goals. 

“The preparation could have effected the players today, but there is nothing we could have done about it and their performance has shown just how well they’re all playing at the moment.”

Farndon admitted that following victory on the road - the Sky Blues U23s' seventh straight victory - their confidence is sky high as they aim to continue the recent momentum. 

“When you’re playing well and winning games it doesn’t take much motivation to go out there and perform well. Each player is looking forward to stepping onto that pitch and performing. 

“I thought we were excellent for 80 minutes. We were disappointed at conceding the goal because it was a mistake on our part, but Charles-Cook is adamant it didn’t cross the line.”

He added: “We had lots of chances in the game and the lads put in a real shift today. We were really good in possession, but our defensive shape was excellent and we game them very little.”
