"It’s a great feeling to get the win, but it means nothing unless we take this confidence into the weekend." - Coventry City's Kwame Thomas

21 March 2017

The 21-year old scored his third goal of the season, as City do the double over Port Vale...

Striker Kwame Thomas was on target as the Sky Blues claimed their first win under Mark Robins against Port Vale at the Ricoh.

A spectacular solo strike from Kyel Reid opened the scoring, and Thomas was quick to praise the impact of the winger, who featured for the first time under the new manager. 

“He fully warranted the goal, he was a constant threat and caused all sorts of problems running at their defence. I was quite close to Kyel and it sat up really nice for him, it’s a fantastic finish and thankfully it went in.” Kwame said.  

“It’s the lift that we needed, since the manager has come in it hasn’t quite clicked in the attacking third, but it’s a much needed victory and hopefully will give us a boost heading into Saturday.

“I think everyone bounced off each other, if one pressed the others did as well. As a unit today we were good, there was limited space for the opposition and all round it was a solid performance, but we have to build on that." 

The 21-year old netted his third goal of the season with a poachers back-heeled finish, after following up on a parried Stuart Beavon shot, and is hoping his side can build on the win ahead of the visit of Bristol Rovers this weekend.

He continued: “One thing that I said coming into the game was that I’ll keep following in to the goal in case a shot is spilled and Beavon has done well, the ‘keeper has saved it and I’ve tried to get on the rebound.

“It was a little behind me so I’ve tried similar in the past going for the back heel, and thankfully it has worked out for me tonight and gone in.

“We have to do that again on Saturday, that is the main thing. It’s a great feeling to get the win, but at the end of the day, we’re still bottom of the league. It means nothing unless we go and take this confidence into the weekend.”
