INTERVIEW: Jordan Shipley Discusses New Contract

The midfielder looks ahead to tomorrow's game following his contract extension...

19 January 2018

Yesterday, Jordan Shipley put pen to paper on a new deal at Coventry City, to commit his future to the club up until 2020.

The midfielder has broken into the starting eleven this season, having made 22 appearances and starting the last 10 league games in a row.

The 20 year-old was delighted to extend his deal at the club and spoke to the press earlier today upon the announcement of his new deal last night.

He said: “I’m delighted. I’ve been at this club for twelve years now and to be given a new contract, it is a great achievement for myself and my family who have been committed to me during the years so I’m really happy.

“It’s a lot more difficult than 23sin the first team, but I don’t feel fatigued. I mean everyone gets tried now and then but it’s about resting up after the games and trainings same intensity every day.

“I need to improve my physical side and fitness’s to last 90 minutes and beyond, but I’ll keep working hard and it will eventually all come together.

“I’ve been working harder with Andy Young the Fitness Coach, doing some extra runs and luckily it’s coming together now.”

And on his favourite moment in a Sky Blues shirt: “The Luton goal has been my highlight as well as winning goal of the month; it was a great day for me.

“We had a chat and Duke thought he could get it up and over the wall, but then the gaffer shouted for me to take it so I just didn’t think too much about it and it think that helped.”

Next up for City now is a clash at the Ricoh Arena against Swindon Town in League Two action, a side who currently sit on the same amount of points as Mark Robins side.

Shipley and his team mates will be looking to bounce back from defeat last time out against Exeter City and he is hoping they can get back up and running this weekend.

“It’s a little blip. We need to be a lot more consistent and hopefully we can get up and running against Swindon and we fancy ourselves to get the three points against them.

“Two points separate third and ninth and its very tight, but we will go into tomorrow’s game positive, we want to be in the top three come the end of the season.

“I think everyone has to contribute to the goal whether that’s centre back or striker and I think I need to contribute more with goals and assists from now on.”
