"If you’re dangerous from set-pieces it can be a bonus for a side and the defenders contribute to that.” - Coventry City's Jordan Turnbull

Jordan Turnbull on his goalscoring form and building on the result against Millwall...

Defender Jordan Turnbull is hoping his early season goalscoring exploits continue as the Sky Blues look to build on the performance against Millwall. 

Turnbull has scored twice in his first five appearances for City, both coming in the 4-2 victory over West Ham at the Ricoh, and even as a defender the 21-year-old is looking to help his teammates in any way he can.

With goals difficult to come by for Coventry so far this season, Turnbull is hopeful that a first league win is just around the corner. He said: “It’s definitely something that if I can contribute then I’ll do whatever I can.

“It’s really the only thing missing at the moment, but there are goals in the team. Our strikers are very talented in the squad and for one reason or another it just hasn’t dropped right, but we all have faith in each other.

“On a personal note it’s something I want to build on. If you’re dangerous from set-pieces it can be a big bonus for a side and the defenders contribute to that.” 

Turnbull has started the season apart of the back three and it is a position he is well aware of having played the formation at Swindon Town last year. 

“I think the formation suits me and I have also had experience of playing it which always helps when you’re trying to adapt to a new side and new teammates. 

“At the moment I am enjoying my football and we have a great team here that can achieve success this season, we just need to take positives from the season so far and then build on those mistakes we’ve made,”

He added: “I’ve always liked to play the ball out of the back and look to step out of defence to help my teammates, and that’s a style of football that the manager wants here.”
