The Sky Blues travel to the Cambs Glass Stadium tomorrow afternoon looking for their third straight win in League Two...

Jack Grimmer, an ever-present in the Sky Blues side since his summer switch from Championship side Fulham, has been part of City's five clean sheets in the opening seven games.

Despite his attacking instincts, Grimmer has been delighted with the defensive aspect of the Sky Blues' performances so far.

Grimmer said: "A 1-0 win is my kind of result, it was always something we focused on. Even in pre-season we were looking quite solid.

"In my career I think it is the best I have felt defensively as part of a team. Even against Port Vale when they went close in the final stages I just didn't think we would concede, long may that continue.

"People who score the goals will get the headlines but Lee Burge pulled off an incredible save against Port Vale in the final minute to get us the three points and did very well against Carlisle as well.

"I'll sing his praises as long as he continues to do that. Three clean sheets in three since returning tells you all you need to know so far."

The defender also praised the impact in recent weeks of Jodi Jones and Peter Vincenti, and admitted their variety in attack is cuasing opposing team problems.

"I don't think you can find two completely different wingers, but it's good for us as it bamboozles their defence.

"One minute they're marking that nippy, tricky winger and Jodi is one of the best at that, and the other way Vincenti is one of the best headers of the ball. It definitely keeps opposition on their toes," 

He added: "It is too early to be reflecting on where we are in the league, personally I have always started to pay attention to that around a quarter of the way through the season.

"Around twelve games there is a good chunk of the season out the way and you can evaluate exactly what you've been doing well and what needs improving on."
