New loan signing Callum O’Hare spoke about his bitter sweet first start for the Sky Blues after Tuesday’s Carabao Cup defeat to Watford.
The midfielder was keen to take the positives from a game against Premier League opposition and expressed the importance of getting 90 minutes under his belt.
O’Hare said: “It was a tough game but I was really happy to get my first start for Coventry and hopefully there are many more to come.
“The longest I have played this season is probably 70 minutes so it was good to get 90 minutes in me.
“These are the games you want to play in against Premier League teams, I thought first half we did really well but we went 1-0 down so second half we had to come out, try and score, and they caught us on the break.”
O’Hare played as part of a three-man midfield during the game and is raring to contribute to the Sky Blues league campaign.
“The lads have been great and I have settled in really well, I am enjoying every day.
“It will be good for me to get some good footballing experience and hopefully I can show I’m a creative sort of player that likes to get into the box and make things happen, but I will definitely work hard for the team.”
Despite the result, the Sky Blues were backed by over 3,000 fans at Vicarage and it was their fantastic support that has come to the attention of O’Hare since moving to the club.
“The club is such a great place and the fans were brilliant tonight, loads of them came down and that’s really nice to see.
“Because I have joined from Aston Villa the fans have given me a bit of banter but footballs football and I will help the team as much as I can.”
Next up for the Sky Blues is a trip to Oxford, a test O’Hare feels the squad is ready to face.
“We have to put tonight’s result behind us and focus on Saturday’s game against Oxford.
“They will be a good team who move the ball well but we have just got to play our own game.”
