U23s top scorer Thomas nets a brace as his City side defeat Huddersfield Town at the Ricoh...
Striker George Thomas confirmed it was important to maintain a winning mentality as they got the better of table toppers Huddersfield Town at the Ricoh.
City made it two from two as they built on last week’s resounding 5-1 away victory against Sheffield United, with the striker adding another two goals to his season's tally.
Thomas now has four goals in his last three games as he looks to earn a recall to Tony Mowbray’s first-team set-up. He said: “We were saying before the game we needed to build on the result last week and we’ve come away with another very good result.
“Huddersfield sit top of the league now and won this division last season so we knew it would be a tough game coming into it, but the lads were fantastic today.
“It’s now about continuing to push on and improve further ahead of the next game. We have a bit of confidence as a group and we’ve shown the performance levels we are capable of.”
George admits that it has been a tough start to the season for him personally, but will continue his quest for a place in Tony Mowbray's first-team setup.
“Starting with the first-team in pre-season and then not hitting the form I would have liked was a disappointment to me. I, like others, just need to knuckle down and show what I can do.
“I need to prove I am good enough to make the step-up and continue to score goals and help my teammates as much as possible.”
He added: “For anyone my age you want to be playing first-team football, but you don’t just get given it and we all know we have to keep going, keep impressing and then we’ll get our chance.”
