Sky Blues midfielder Jordan Shipley insists City need to move on and work hard at putting things right next week against Wimbledon.

The Sky Blues fell to a 2-1 defeat against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park after a deflected strike put the hosts in front.

Shipley admitted City got off to a shaky start in the game and suggested it could’ve been down to nerves, something he believes shouldn’t have been the case.

He said: “I thought we had a shaky first half, but we grew into it second half and we were unfortunate in the end and conceded two goals we probably shouldn’t have concedes and that’s what cost us.

“I’m not sure why that was, maybe we had some nerves, but we shouldn’t be nervous heading into the game having won three on the bounce.

“We should’ve been on the front foot ready to go but it’s happened now and we need to move on.

“Everyone works hard for everyone and we have great bunch of lads here and we will now look to move on and put it right against Wimbledon next week.

“We’re going to be positive heading into that one and make sure we get three points by creating more chances and make sure we finish teams off.”

The midfielder has started the last four games, which had seen a change in fortune for the Sky Blues, having won three on the bounce before the weekend.

Shipley has played out on the left, a position he has become familiar with over the past year, having featured out wide more than once.

The 21-year old enjoys playing on the left, but admitted he needs to create more going forward in the future.

“We had a lot of chances created and we are working the ball well, but we just need that final end product when it comes to it.

“I enjoy playing on the left, but then again I enjoy playing anywhere the Gaffer tells me, but personally I think I need to start getting more crosses in.

“I have a good understanding where the strikers are and they’re great running off the ball but I need to find the more.”
