10 August 2018

The Sky Blues are on the road for the first time of the 2018/19 League One campaign and visit AFC Wimbledon on Saturday afternoon.

After encountering hardship late-on in their previous game against Scunthorpe, City will be looking for their opening three points of the season.

New signing Abu Ogogo made his competitive debut in that fixture and has revealed the excitement he had in joining the club.

“40,000 fans went to Wembley last year so you can see the size of the club and I just wanted to be a part of getting it back to where it belongs.

“I knew a few of the boys already including Jack Grimmer and Liam O’Brien.

“I spoke to Jack over the summer to get an inside opinion on the gaffer and the club, he only had good things to say.

“The gaffer was a big part of it too and sold the club to me very well.”

Before joining City, Ogogo played his trade at Shrewsbury Town and was a major part of their success.

“I was at Shrewsbury for 3 years and felt I had a really good relationship with both teammates and supporters.

“But I just felt that I achieved what I could with the club and thought it was time to move on.

“Coventry came up and it was too good an opportunity to turn down.”

The 28-year-old however enjoyed the first seventy minutes in a Sky Blue shirt but believes there is more work to be done.

“We should have on the game against Scunthorpe.

“We missed a couple of chances and then conceded to poor goals, we need to learn from that.

“We were the better team for seventy minutes but they made a couple of changes when we tired.

“There are lots of positives to take though, but we need to make sure we take those chances and put them in the back of the net.”
