The Sky Blues exited the Carabao Cup after a 3-1 defeat against Blackburn Rovers at the Ricoh Area...

Jodi Jones was one of the five remaining from the opening day win against Notts County, with six changes made as Mark Robins utilised his squad.

The 19-year old couldn't quite repeat his heroics from that game, but attention now returns to League Two with a trip to Grimsby Town this weekend.

"I didn't have too many chances tonight, we all were working really hard off the ball because they had most of the possession throughout the game," Jodi said.

"They were a different challenge compared to Notts County, obviously they're a very good side. I think we did do well, we had a few chances and didn't put them away which was disappointing from our point of view.

"I think two of their goals were quite lucky and went against us, both taking big deflections but that is football, anything can happen but if we took our chances we could have been ahead."

Looking back at his hat-trick, the matchball has a prominant place within Jodi's house, with the winger determined to repeat the performance throughout the campaign.

"It's on the mantelpeice, it's my first professional hat-trick so I was delighted. I only scored one goal in the league last season, so even after scoring the first on Saturday I was buzzing.

"It was important for us as a team to get off to a winning start, the hat-trick was something I'll never forget,"

He added: "I've been working on my end product in training, staying after sessions trying to improve that side of my game as I am looking to score more goals this season.
