INTERVIEW: Jordy Hiwula Reflects On Fleetwood Win

The striker scored his ninth goal of the season...

13 March 2019

Sky Blues striker, Jordy Hiwula moved to nine goals for the season after scoring the winner against former club Fleetwood Town last night.

Jordy found the back of the net minutes before the half-time interval and it would prove to be crucial as the Sky Blues moved within three points of the play-offs.

Hiwula admitted there was only one thing on his mind when he picked up the ball just inside the Fleetwood half.

He said: “I didn’t think I was having the best of games in the first half so I thought next time I get the ball I’m going to just run at the defenders and try and make something happen.

“When I got the ball I just turned and ran directly at goal and got past one of their players and managed to find the top corner.

“I pretty much made my mind up as soon as I got the ball as to what I was going to do, I felt like I could run at the defence more and luckily the shot went in.

“I think we worked really hard, they put us under a lot of pressure, but I felt like we dealt with it really well and there were a few times we got in behind and as unlucky not go get another goal as well, but I thought It was a good team performance.

“It was a really good victory, we ha da few injuries before the game, but I felt like the lads that came into the side did well and worked really hard as well.

“I think it was one of the best goals I scored I hit it sweet and managed to get into the top corner, so it was a good gaol for myself personally.”

Hiwula was played the ball on the half-way line by young centre-back, Morgan Williams, who made his league debut in the game.

Before that, Williams had featured for the first team on three other occasions, all of those coming in the Checkatrade Trophy group games.

Talking after the game, his team-mate, Jordy Hiwula believes it was a great league debut for the centre-back.

“That was his first league debut and I thought he was really solid and Davies alongside him we know what he can do, and he helped Morgs (Morgan Williams) all game alongside him.

“It didn’t surprise me because he played in a Checkatrade game at the Ricoh and he did really well in that game that we played.

“Also, I’ve seen him in training since I’ve been here and I know what he’s capable of, so its no shock to see him having a good game.

“He played well against the likes of Ched Evans and Paddy Madden who experience strikers so he should be really proud of himself.”
