INTERVIEW: Jason Farndon Reflects On Hull Win

Under-23s come away with a victory against Hull City...

12 April 2019

Sky Blues coach Jason Farndon was delighted with his sides 3-0 win against Hull City at the Ricoh Arena earlier today.

City rounded off their Professional Development League South campaign in comfortable style, dominating from the off against the Tigers.

Talking after the final whistle, Farndon spoke of his delight from the performance of his young side, which consisted of under 18s and 16s. 

“I thought that was our best performance of the season, I thought we were excellent.” He said.

“We talked about our work rate and desire and our will to win the game and that was us today and I think that was us.

“We had five under eighteens starting today and me and Luke want young hungry players that want to play for the club, age doesn’t really matter to us we just want young and hungry footballers.”

City now have to wait on the results of Crystal Palace to see if they will finish in the top two of division and secure a play-off spot.

The Sky Blues sit four points ahead of the Eagles, however they have two games in hand against Leeds United and Watford.

Reflecting on recent results, Farndon admitted his side were disappointing against Crewe last week in which they slipped to defeat.

However, after a change in personnel with the younger players coming through due to players in the first team not available, Farndon was delighted with their performances.

“I’m not a massive one to blame age of players for not winning games, but that is the team we want to play, we’ve said it on numerous occasions.

“We let ourselves down at Crewe, we were no where near what we were today which is disappointing.

“But we’re delighted the players have come in today as show they are good young hungry footballers that want to play for the club and the first team and that is the pleasing thing for us.

“We speak about desire to play for this football club and it’s built on young players playing to their maximum week in week out.”
