"Not many teams come here and control the game like we did and that is a testament to ourselves." - Coventry City's Gael Bigirimana

Midfielder Gael Bigirimana reflect's on City's 1-1 league draw, as the Sky Blues pick up their first points on the road...

City Midfielder Gael Bigirimana believes they can take plenty of positives from the performance in the 1-1 draw against Millwall. 

The Sky Blues took the lead through a fantastic Marvin Sordell strike, but Aiden O’Brien’s goal 20 minutes from time rescued a point for the home side. 

City controlled large spells of the game but the City Academy graduate knows they need to turn their good play into victories moving forward: “We are very disappointed to only come away with a point and I think that shows we played well today,” he said.

“Not many teams come here and control the game like we did and that is a testament to ourselves, but we know we still have to improve further. 

“There were certainly positives to take from the game and it gives us a platform to build on and to go away and work on what we can do better for the next game.”

It is Bigirimana’s third spell at the club following his move from Newcastle last month and the 22-year-old has established himself already as an important part of Tony Mowbray’s side. 

“I try to do whatever I can and give my all for this club. I want to inspire my teammates with my performances and if I can contribute to what we’re trying to achieve here I’ll be happy.

“I’ve come through three difficult years in my career but it has made me stronger as a person and hopefully that shows on the football pitch.”

He added: “I am here for a purpose and just like the rest of my teammates we are all working extremely hard to be successful as a team.”
