Sky Blues midfielder Liam Kelly believes him and his team mates are confident now heading into the final remaining games of the League Two season.

With just three games left for City, their destiny is in their own hands as they look to secure a place in the play-offs come the end of the season.

Kelly is confident following the 3-1 win over Stevenage, which he described as brilliant as City took a step closer to securing a spot in the top seven.

He said: “Going into the last ten minutes of the game you could see the fans were enjoying us keeping possession and that’s what it’s all about.

“You want that week in and week out, and we want to bring that back to the football club.

“We’re confident.

“We’ll enjoy the win but then we’ll be concentrating on Tuesday night’s game because if we can get three points against a team in the play-offs it’s going to be a big three points that sets us up nicely for the last two games.”

During the victory over the Boro, Kelly played in a more advanced role in the game than what he has done in recent weeks.

That attacking threat from the midfielder was evident throughout the game as he got on the scoresheet for the first time and also hit the bar.

He admitted he like to play that role in some games, but was happy with the overall performance and to pick up three points heading into Tuesday’s game against Lincoln City.

“I played a more advanced role and I really enjoyed it in what was a real team performance,” he said.

“I like that role in certain games. We have had a change of formation in recent games and we have had two wins with it, so long may it continue.

“I probably could have had a hat-trick to be honest with you.

“I hit the bar and I had another chance when it could have been three before half-time, but it was a pleasing day.

“It was a nice game, nice to get three goals and get on the scoresheet as well.

“It was a big game for us to keep up the pace and keep in the play-offs, and sets us up nicely for Tuesday night.”
