INTERVIEW: "We Just Need To Be Positive About Our Football"

Liam Kelly looks ahead to Plymouth clash...

18 January 2019

Sky Blues midfielder Liam Kelly says that him and his team mates will need to be on top of their game to come away with three points tomorrow.

City take on a Plymouth side who have won their last two on the bounce, as they look to claw themselves away from danger.

When the two sides met earlier in the season, Amadou Bakayoko’s first goal for the club was enough to give the Sky Blues three points.

Kelly told how City will need to be positive and be on top of their game come kick-off at Home Park tomorrow afternoon.

“We just need to be positive about our football.

“There is a lot of talented young players in our team and it’s just trying to get the best out of them in the right position.

“It is going to be a tough game tomorrow, going to Plymouth away when they are fighting for their lives and there are no easy games in League One.

“They will be doing everything they can to come away with a result, so we need to be on our top game and be ruthless when we can.

“We are training on the way down there and time in the hotel to get to know each other.

“Youngsters who have come into the team like Sam and Bright, it gives them a good opportunity for people to get to know them better and see what they are like.”

Kelly came back into the Sky Blues starting eleven around December, having missed the majority of the first half of the season through injuries.

The midfielder has been unfortunate with the niggling injuries he has picked up, especially over the Christmas period.

Liam picked up knocks and bruises as well as illness, missing just one game against Scunthorpe due to an illness.

Now, as we enter the second half of the season, the midfielder is looking to continue his run in the side and help the Sky Blues push up the table.

“I’ve had a few niggling injuries, so it is good to be back in the team because we are footballers, so it is what we do, we want to be out there playing.

“Hopefully we can get some points on the board to top it off.

“We had three wins in a row and then that little dip, but there are no easy games in this league.

“Looking at oppositions, we need to stay within touching distant of the play offs if we can’t get ourselves into it.

“When we get to March, where there is a lot of games and that is when you find out where you are going to be in the league.

“So if we can stay in touching distance until the busy periods, that is when we can make our push for the play offs and that is the aim for us this season.”
