INTERVIEW: "I Just Want To Do Better Than Last Season"

The striker scored two midweek...

16 August 2019

Jordy Hiwula wants to continue scoring goals ahead of tomorrow’s League One clash against Bristol Rovers.

The forward scored a brace inside half an hour to open his account for the season, on Tuesday night, and wants to continue that form for the rest of the campaign.

He also wants to improve on last season’s tally of 13 goals, across all competitions, the most of any Sky Blues player last term.

Hiwula said: “For me, especially at the start of the season, I just wanted to get up and running as soon as possible. Now I’m up and running, I just want to carry on and continue scoring goals now.

“I’ve not got a target in mind, I just want to do better than last season and I’ve started off well so far so hopefully it continues.”

Hiwula also believes the competitive mood within the camp can only be a benefit as the season wears on.

“The mood is really competitive because people see player’s that are coming back from injury and player’s just want to stay in the team and keep their place.

“Everyone is training as they would play in a game and I think it’s really healthy competition for everyone.”

He was also pleased with the Sky Blues performance in mid-week and hopes City can continue in that vein for the remainder of the season.

“I felt like the boys put in a good shift on Tuesday and we just have to continue that and build from it.

“We thought that we played well, especially in the first-half on Tuesday. I felt like the team did really well and we just have to continue from this now.”

Jordy also stated that, whilst his preference is to play as a number nine, he now feels comfortable playing on the left-hand side.

“My favourite position is to play as a nine but we’ve got loads of good strikers here so I can adapt to playing in other positions as well so that’s good for me.

“I played off the left all of last season, I’m pretty much familiar with that role now. If the manager puts me out on the left, on the right, down the middle, I’ll always give 100%.”
