INTERVIEW: Jordan Shipley Reflects On Boreham Wood Win

4 December 2017

Yesterday afternoon, the Sky Blues booked their place in tonight’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round draw, thanks to a 3-0 win at the Ricoh Arena against Boreham Wood.

Goals from Duckens Nazon, Marc McNulty and Jordan Shipley were enough to see off the National League side in the Second Round.

The win means Mark Robins and his side progress to the Third Round for the first time since 2014, with that year City managing to get to the Fourth Round.

Following the full time whistle, we spoke to Jordan Shipley and he was delighted to be on the scoresheet and ensure him and his teammates progressed in the competition.

He said: “It was good, they’re a good side (Boreham Wood) to be fair and we struggled first half I thought, but as soon as we got the goal I thought we came into our own and did well.

“The gaffer wants us to go out and attack teams and to not be afraid to go forward and create chances and take shots and that’s what we did today and we was rewarded with three goals.

“Two times in games before the ball has flashed across goal and I’ve not been there and we’ve had a look at it and now I’ve got the goal by being there, as our analyst looked for it beforehand.

“I thought someone was going to get there before me but it’s come to me and I didn’t think too much about it and put it in the net.”

Sky Blues supporters and the first team will all have to wait until tonight to watch the FA Cup draw, as the Premier League and Championship sides come into the frame.

Shipley will be keeping one eye on the draw tonight, with himself hoping for an away trip to Anfield in the next round.

“It will be exciting to see who we got with the Premier League clubs coming in so it will be interesting to see who we get, I wouldn’t mind Liverpool away.

“My feet are firmly on the ground my friends and all my family make sure of that and I just need to keep working hard and improving every game.

“The gaffer believes all young players coming through and if you take your chance and prove you can do well the he’s going to keep you in it.”
