The Sky Blues travel to Blundell park to face Grimsby Town tomorrow afternoon, as they return to League Two action...
Mark Robins' side got off to the perfect start against Notts County last weeked, but ahead of the first away game of the season Kelly is hoping to replicate that kind of performance against Russell Slade's side.
"It's been a good start to the season, we're only one game in but it's important to build on that throughout the season," Kelly said.
"Notts County gave us the perfect start, we got two late goals but I thought the performance was great. They're a direct and physically strong side and I do think they'll be up there come the end of the season.
"I felt we dealt with their threat very well and this Saturday is going to be no different. It will be another tough game but we'll be ready. There are no easy away games in this league."
New club captain Michael Doyle has often partnered Kelly in the centre of midfielder, and it is something the 27-year old is hoping can continue in the coming months.
"I've played against Michael Doyle quite a few times so I think we understand each others game. He's very experienced and played at quite a lot of big clubs.
"He's been fantastic, great for the dressing room and is a very good club captain to have. I think we're both quite similar players and it's good to be playing alongisde him currently,"
He added: "There is competition in the middle of the park, we have a few young lads keeping us on our heels, so it keeps us on our toes in a way."
