INTERVIEW: Jason Farndon Looks Back On Nottingham Forest Win

The Sky Blues secured a 3-0 win last week...

25 March 2019

The Sky Blues climbed into the top two of the Professional Development League South last week, with a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

City entertained Forest at the Alan Higgs Centre last week and came out on top thanks to goals from David Bremang, a trialist and Morgan Williams.

The win means that the Sky Blues climbed up into second place, taking over Crystal Palace, with both sides on the same number of games now.

City had to not only battle Forest throughout the 90 minutes, but also the weather, with high winds effecting the game at times.

Reflecting on the game, Sky Blues Under 23s coach, Jason Farndon was impressed with what he saw from his side.

He said: “I thought the game was a real good advert for under 23s football, which can take a lot of stick sometimes by people.

“There were two committed teams out there and I think development football, we try to make it as real and as competitive as it can be, and I think that showed against Nottingham Forest.

“In what were really difficult conditions, with the wind playing its part in the game, I thought we out-worked Forest and were deserved winners.”

With four games in the season remaining, City are on course to finish in the top two, which would mean a chance at winning the South side of the draw.

The winners of that game will then come head to head with the winners of the north side, in order to crown a regional winner.

Farndon is challenging side to take on the opportunity head on and give themselves something to aim for at the end of the season.

“We’re now into the top two places of the division and we’ve put pressure on the lads to try and qualify for the play-offs in our region and see where we can go from there.

“We’ve got four games left to play and it’s in our hands and we want to be in the top two of the league come the end of the season.

“I think our performance against Nottingham Forest, coming away 3-0 winners against a side that were unbeaten in eleven, shows we’re capable of doing that.”
