"These two wins were hugely important because it gives us a bit of momentum & confidence ahead of Wembley." - Coventry City's George Thomas

25 March 2017

The 20-year old on the Sky Blues victory against Bristol Rovers, and their trip to Wembley...

Forward George Thomas struck his sixth goal of the season, as the Sky Blues made it back-to-back victories with a win against Bristol Rovers.

The Welshman scored the only goal of the game, latching onto a through ball from substitute Ruben Lameiras to fire past the Rovers ‘keeper.

City now turn their attention to the Checkatrade Trophy, as they face fellow League One side Oxford United under the famous arch at Wembley Stadium.

“It was a well-earned victory and really good on the back of Tuesday night to be able to follow it up. We wanted to keep up the momentum going into next week, to get the win was important, but to match it with a good performance was fantastic.

“Especially in the second half, I thought we played some really good stuff so everyone is buzzing with the result today.

“The gaffer has told us to have a little more freedom, whilst at the same time keeping that structure so we’re not easy to play against. I think everyone is enjoying their role in the side at the moment, and that is telling.

“I think it is important for me to hit the target and get some goals, in recent weeks I’ve had a few chances and haven’t done it, so today was important for me.”

As a player, or fan, George has never been to the new Wembley, and hopes for positive first experience next Sunday against the U’s.

“We can start getting excited for the day, we’ve all been focusing on the league because that was the most important in the lead up. It should be a good day for everybody involved.

“I’ve never been to Wembley, never been to watch. I’ve said it before these two wins were hugely important because it gives us a bit of momentum and confidence heading in the game. 

“Hopefully we can put on a good performance for the fans.”
