"I told them last week and it has carried over – they have set the standard going forward." - Coventry City's Nicky Eaden.

Nicky Eaden on Coventry City's stylish 2-0 win against league leaders Huddersfield Town...

Manager Nicky Eaden praised the performance of all of his players as the Under-23s made it two wins on the bounce with victory against Huddersfield Town. 

George Thomas continued his goalscoring form, scoring a brace to make it four goals in just three games, but the high level of individual performance across the team was a particular highlight. 

Following the 5-1 victory against Sheffield United last week, Eaden believes it was important to keep momentum flowing within the Development setup. He said: “It was a terrific performance, one to eleven and the subs as well. I couldn’t really fault anybody out there today.

“There was some fantastic individual performances, and the football we played throughout was very encouraging. I told them last week and it has carried over – they have set the standard going forward.

“We know how good they are and they all have confidence in each other, but it is about consistency and maintaining that high level of performance. It is no good only showing it occasionally.” 

Eaden was quick to praise free-scoring forward George Thomas, who was heavily involved with the first-team in pre-season, and will need to continue impressing to make an impression on Mowbray's senior side. 

“Some of them have suffered because they have been with the first-team a lot over pre-season and it is kind of a disappointment when they drop down a level. 

“But that is football and it is about how you react to that to force your way back into that picture. George, in particular, has been very good this season and he is a confidence player.”

He added: “If he continues to score goals his confidence will increase further and another two goals today will certainly help towards that.”
