Defender Jack Grimmer starred as the Sky Blues made it three wins in just seven days against Crewe at the Ricoh...

The Sky Blues registered their seventh clean sheet of the season and kept up their record of the meanest defence in the division, conceding just five goals.

"With the chances that we had I feel we could have killed the game a little earlier," Grimmer said.

"I think with the team defending the way we are it's a solid base for us and we'll take the clean sheet. The defenders really buzz off the clean sheet so that was very important.

"I think it was perhaps a little nervy because of the scoreline, but I felt we controlled it well and limited them to very little once they got to the edge of our box.

"It's not like they were getting half-chances and I felt we defended well. There will probably be another ten games like that this season, so it was good to hold onto the win."

The Sky Blues recruited heavily in the summer, with thirteen additions to Mark Robins' side, and Grimmer has been impressed by how quickly the side has took shape.

"I think the performances and points we've racked up, people are forgetting that not only as a back four, but as a team, we have a lot of new players this season.

"It's a credit to the Manager that everyone has settled in really well. I felt at home straight away and got on with the boys, so long may that continue,"

He added: "I'll happily give the credit to the strikers. I felt some of there play today was forced because of the pressure from the attacking players, so it really is a team effort."
