"You can’t ask for more, back in the side, to get a clean sheet and a win in the final game at home is great." - City's Reice Charles-Cook

Reice Charles-Cook claims a clean sheet as City record further home victory...

Goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook made his first appearance for over two months, as the Sky Blues secured victory in their final home game of the season.

George Thomas scored the only goal of the game, finishing smartly from the edge of the box, making it four wins in five Ricoh games for Mark Robins' side.

Charles-Cook said: “You can’t ask for more, back in the side and to get a clean sheet and a win in the final game at home is great. The gaffer had told us to give the fans what they want and that was victory, so to feature in that was very nice.

“Everyone is going to be frustrated when they’re not playing, but whoever is not playing is always supportive and Lee Burge was exactly the same with me today. It’s more about the team and I’m glad the gaffer gave me a chance today.

“You have to be professional all the time, I found out yesterday I was playing but the preparation doesn’t change. I’m glad to be back playing and hopefully I can continue.”

The Saddlers were reduced to ten men with 20 minutes to play, but City held on to claim another three points, something the shot stopper believes has improved since the arrival of Mark Robins.

“They seemed to get better with ten men actually, it was one of those where we had to dig in at times, but we got the result and that is all you can ask for is the three points.

“The four at the back is looking stable. There has been a lot of change this season due to various reason, including injury, but they’re beginning to look solid together and that only helps get results.

He added: “I think we’re playing at a higher intensity since the new gaffer has come in and our mentality has improved. We are going into games believing we are a better side, and if we play to our potential we can get the result.”
