INTERVIEW: Peter Vincenti on the Sky Blues' League Two fixture against Chesterfield

Midfielder Peter Vincenti previews the Sky Blues clash against the Spirites tomorrow afternoon...

1 September 2017

The Sky Blues head to the Proact Stadium tomorrow to take on League Two's bottom club Chesterfield...

Midfielder Peter Vincenti was one of thirteen new signings to join the ranks over the summer and the 31-year-old admitted that despite being bottom of the standings the Spirites will be a tougher test than many will anticipate.

"Chesterfield will be difficult. They're a big club who have been in League One. They may be bottom of the league but they are dangerous," said Vincenti.

"We are not going to take them lightly. We will show they respect, like we do to any side.

"We know how well we can play and what performances we can put in so we should be looking to get something from their place."

Shrewsbury Town's Joe Riley broke Coventry hearts in the dying moments on Tuesday when his curling free kick secured his side a dramatic 3-2 victory in the Checkatrade Trophy.

However the Sky Blues did claw back a two goal half time defecit to draw level with the League One side after the break and it is that positive second half that Vincenti feels the side can build on.

"I do not think we did ourselves any justice in the first half on Tuesday. We had the best of the play but we gave away sloppy goals and found ourselves on the back foot.

"The lads did well to get back into it and there only looked like there was going to be one winner so to lose it like that was a kick in the teeth.

"We came out after half time and put quite a lot right but we cannot be doing that every game. We can not be giving goals away like we have and then fighitng back. We need to start games the way we start second half."

He added: "I am still learning about my teammates. I personally do not think I am playing at the level I should be and I am working hard to get to that level.

"Some of these lads have been at another club for a number of years so this is still a relatively new stage but we have to learn quickly and start getting more points on the board."
