INTERVIEW: Jordan Ponticelli Previews Friday Night's Game With Boro

The striker has been in fine form recently...

19 April 2018

Sky Blues striker Jordan Ponticelli is looking forward to getting back to action on Friday night, as he looks to continue his impressive form.

Jordan has three goals in his last two games and helped to earn City all three points in their last outing against Crawley Town this past weekend. 

The striker has the perfect opportunity to pick up where he left off when Coventry entertain Stevenage at the Ricoh Arena on Friday night and he believes a weight has been lifted off his shoulders.

He said: “We said after Notts County that we wanted to crack on and get some wins under our belt and we went and did that against Crawley and hopefully that will help us to push for the last four games of the season now. 

“I said I will always try my hardest when I come on and get my chance and I think I’ve done that in the last few weeks and with the goals its helping my cause to get a few more games, but I'm just glad to see the team back and winning again.

"It always gives me confidence if you look at Sparky he went through the start of the season not getting many goals but once he got that one he just cracked on and hasn’t looked back since and it’s the same with me really.

“When I got that first league goal it was a massive weight off my shoulders and I think that helped me get the goals against Crawley.”

The Sky Blues currently sit in sixth position in League Two and have their destiny in their own hands as they look to cement a place in the play-offs.

On Friday night, City can apply pressure on the teams around them if they pick up three points, as they play before their rivals, and Ponticelli is hoping that him and his team mates can set themselves up for a good finish to the season.

He said: “I don’t think anyone is feeling any pressure, I know we have a lot of expectation on our shoulders but the lads here are good enough and strong enough mentally to handle that and prove why we should be doing as well as we can in the last four games.

“In the final last four games, we want to push to try and set ourselves up for the best possible result in the play-offs for us and the win at Crawley gave us a massive boost and that will show going into the game.”
