INTERVIEW: Jodi Jones Previews Maidenhead United

3 November 2017

This weekend marks the First Round of this year’s FA Cup, as The Sky Blues get underway against National League side, Maidenhead United at the Ricoh Arena.

City will head into the game with a lot of confidence following last week’s 3-0 win away from home against then league leaders, Luton Town.

Coventry winger, Jodi Jones, is looking forward to the game against Maidenhead, but knows it will be a difficult game.

He said: “It’s just another game; we can’t go into it thinking it’s going to be an easy game because they’re a league below us, it’s nothing like that, it’s going to be a difficult game and were going to have to try and break them down.

“I don’t think we’ve been patient up until the final third and I think we’ve forced things, but against Luton we did well and hopefully we can take that into Sunday, confidence is sky high at the moment.

“We are a good side and we create a lot of chances, but before the Luton game we just wasn’t taking them, but we took them against them and hopefully we can take that into Sunday.”

Jodi, who now has seven assists to his name so far this season for the Sky Blues admitted he is enjoying his football at the minute.

“I want to play every game, I want to keep scoring and I want to keep winning, I’m just enjoying my football at the minute.

“I do like scoring goals, it’s a great feeling, but I prefer to set-up my team mates.”

One of those team mates he could be assisting in the near future is striker Jordan Ponticelli, who made his first league start last weekend at Kenilworth Road.

“He’s (Jordan Ponticelli) a young lad, he doesn’t stop running and he helps us, because if the strikers are doing their jobs, it helps out everyone else and soon a goal will come for him, he deserves one.

“Usually I’ve been the youngest in the team, but Jordan is a good player and he’s got an eye for a goal and if he plays on Sunday I think he could score.”
