“The demands make feel you have to be a success, so you push yourself harder.” - Coventry City's Cian Harries

The Sky Blues travel north to face Fleetwood Town this weekend aiming to get their first three points of the season...

This weekend sees the Sky Blues face an in-form Fleetwood Town as they aim for a third straight victory over the Cod Army at Highbury.

Fleetwood have lost just one of their last eight games in all competitions, and find themselves just outside the play-off positions at this early stage.
City come into the game on the back of a 4-2 victory against West Ham PL2 in the Checkatrade Trophy, but yet to find three points in league competition.  

A regular in the Sky Blues side this season, Cian Harries, has impressed since his step-up from Under-21’s football and believes his spell in the first-team will only serve to improve him as a player.  
“I’m really enjoying my involvement so far. It’s an experience that will only help me develop so I hope it can continue,” Harries said.

“I think the intensity is a lot higher and this level, it is a lot more demanding than Under-21's football. That comes from the manager, your teammates and the fans as well.

“The demands make feel you have almost got to be a success all the time, so you push yourself harder to try and achieve as much as you can.” 

With a mixture of experience in the squad, Cian believes that the team has a duty to come together and help each other improve as the season progresses.

“We have a fair few players currently in the first-team set-up that I’ve played with for quite a few years so you get to know how they play. 

“Although there are experienced players in the squad with Sam Ricketts and Chris McCann. I do think we have quite a good balance which is important to have at the club."

He finished: “You have the energy and youthfulness matched with the experience and the knowhow of the senior players.”
