The defender was named man of the match yesterday afternoon...

25 February 2019

Jordan Willis says him and his team mates will need to build on the weekend’s 1-1 draw with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

City travelled to the League One leaders and were good value for a point, after Jordan Shipley drew the scores level, cancelling out Matty Pearson’s opener.

Jordan was named man of the match in the game, helping the Sky Blues defend a late attack from the Hatters towards the end of the game.

Talking after the final whistle, Willis admitted it was a ‘great feeling’ to pick up the point and is already looking to build on that against Accrington Stanley next week.

He said: “It was a great feeling to come here and get a result against a team that score a lot of goals and we can take the positives away from that and build on it.

“It’s always disappointing to go behind from a set-piece, but the way we reacted was brilliant though, we scored almost straight away and it’s credit to the lads for that reaction.

“It was a difficult game, we knew the style of play Luton play, they’re very attacking and they have a lot of the ball but second part of the first half we showed what we’re about and hopefully we can keep improving.

“I think the whole team takes pride in not conceding goals and I think that’s credit to all the lads right from the top starting the press high up the pitch and that helps us to score goals, the higher up the pitch you win the ball, the easier it is to score.”

City are now unbeaten in their last four games, picking up two wins and two draws in the process, completing an unbeaten February.

The Sky Blues will feel they could have picked up maximum points in all those fixtures, having put in the performances to match.

Willis has been happy with the performances and says things are starting to click now in front of goal as well.

“The performances of late have been very good and we’re starting to create a lot of chances and score goals so hopefully we can build on that and go to Accrington next week and pick up three points.

“The performances have always been there, it was just getting it to click and to put it in the back of the net and I think that’s starting to happen now and we need that continue and carry on getting results.”

The fixture marked a 200th appearance in a Coventry shirt for the 24-year-old defender and he was named man of the match by the Sky Sports commentators.

Willis admitted it was a great way to mark a feat for the club and he is looking at adding more to those 200 appearances.

“I’m buzzing to have made my 200th appearance and to have won the man of the match award just caps it off.

“There’s been a couple of seasons I’ve missed out through injury but I’ve played over 40 games in three seasons now and hopefully that can continue.”
