INTERVIEW: Jason Farndon Talks Watford Win

The Under 23s picked up their fourth consecutive win...

28 January 2019

The Sky Blues Under-23s made it four wins on the bounce last weekend, with another victory, this time against Watford Under-23s.

It was a tight affair at the Alan Higgs Centre, but a David Bremang goal midway through the second-half was enough to ensure a 1-0 win.

After a slow start, the Sky Blues grew into the game during the second half and edged out the Hornets, something coach Jason Farndon was pleased with.

He said: “I thought we started really slowly, we looked tired and I was disappointed in how we looked and how we set out.

“We knew they were an aggressive pressing team, so we had worked on that and planned for it, but we looked a bit drained.

“Second half I thought we were the better team.

“We said to them at half-time to find a way to win and we did that and now we’re on a bit of a run which we want to keep going.”

Chances were few and far between in the first half, with the best chances falling to the visitors through a well saved free kick by Tom Bilson.

However, City hit the woodwork on several occasions, as well as finding the back of the net through Bremang, for his fifth in four games.

“We hit the bar twice, the post and David Bremang probably should have scored just before he scored and Chris Camwell sent a free-kick into the side netting.

“After a quiet first half, we started to move the ball began creating those chances and that’s ultimately what was the difference.

“I’m pleased for Dave to get on the scoresheet again, he’s growing in confidence and it’s good to see.”

City have now closed the gap on the top two in the league to just one point after recent form, with Crystal Palace sitting above the Sky Blues

“We’re happy with the form we’re in and its only the last week or so people have been talking about the run we’re on.

“We have a lot of good players and I keep repeating myself, the club have invested a lot in the 23s this year and probably took it serious for the first time since I’ve been here.

“We have had some investment and I’m sure that will continue and you can see the rewards, we’ve had a lot of debuts.”
