INTERVIEW: Jordan Willis previews tomorrow's sell-out trip in League Two

The City defender looks ahead to the clash with Luton...

27 October 2017

Defender Jordan Willis says that he put pen to paper on his new Coventry contract after hearing the manager's vision for the club's future.

The 23-year-old who signed a new deal earlier this month will be with the Sky Blues until 2019.

"I was coming to the end of my contract this year and I am very happy to add more  years to it," he said. 

"The gaffer came to me and we spoke for a very long time about the contract. It always felt right for both parties.

"We discussed everything in detail and the gaffers views for the future of this club are massive. He really made me want to be a part of it."

Defensively, the Sky Blues are the best in the Football League and have been working hard as they prepare to face Luton Town, England's highest scorers.

"It has been intense this week."

"Everyone wants to turn it around. We have beeen working a lot ad I just hope that shows on Saturday.

"There are definately goals in the team when you look at the ability of our forwards.

"Kelly and Doyle have a massive part to play in the record too. The balance is a difficult thing to get right. It is hard to say. 

"In games we have created enough chances, even wiith deep midfielders. It is just about putting them away.

"I have not got a goal myself yet either and even I wanted to have chipped in with a few.

"Our good defensive record has to go down to the fact our selection has been very concistent with the selection. We have had a lot fo time to gel. McDonald and I compliment eachother very well and so do Grimmer and Stokes. 

He added: "Luton score a lot of goals but we concede very little so from my point of view we will just be looking to keep it like that.
