INTERVIEW: Jordy Hiwula Talks Southend Win

The striker was off the mark against Southend...

21 October 2018

The Sky Blues made it three wins on the bounce on Saturday as a late Jodi Jones goal secured all three points against Southend at Roots Hall.

Summer signing Jordy Hiwula opened the scoring in the first half for City, netting his first league goal in the process.

Hiwula is now relishing his chance in the first team, after starting the last three games and scoring twice.

He said “A few weeks ago I wasn’t making the squad, so I just thought I’d carry on working hard and as soon as I get my opportunity I’d try and take it with both hands.

“I’ve been showing the manager what I can do in training and I’ve just been working hard, and I knew that my chance would come.

“I felt that when I came on against Charlton I took my chance and I’ve just carried on building and I’m doing well now.”

Hiwula put City ahead with twenty minutes played after he converted from a Michael Doyle corner.

The striker netted his first goal for the club in the Checkatrade Trophy against Forest Green but opened his account in the league with his strike against the Shrimpers.

“I scored a few of them in my career, so hopefully I can score a few more.” He said.

“I felt like I keep getting in the right positions and I feel like if I keep doing that I’ll start getting more goals.”

It was another late winner for the Sky Blues on their travels as Mark Robins’ men built on the away success against Charlton at The Valley.

“We’re a team that just carries on going until the final whistle and players just keep coming on which is giving the manager a good headache.” Said Hiwula.

“We felt like the whole team had to defend from the front today and the two boys up front did magnificent today.

“I feel like everyone did really well and obviously they’ve had that chance which they’ve scored but we’ll build on that and we’ll learn from that going into Tuesday’s game.”
