INTERVIEW: Jordan Shipley Norwich Preview

The Sky Blues travel to Carrow Road tomorrow...

27 November 2020

Jordan Shipley believes the Sky Blues have nothing to fear when they travel to Carrow Road this weekend to take on Norwich City.

City head into the game on the back of four points out of a possible six, after drawing against Birmingham City and beating Cardiff City.

Norwich sit top of the Championship this weekend, but Shipley believes the Sky Blues can take inspiration from their win over Reading, who were also top of the table at that point.

“I don’t think we should be scared, that they’re top of the league.” Shipley said.

“They’ve done well to get to that position but I mean Reading came to us and you know they were top of League at the time when we beat them, so we know we can beat any team in this League it's just down to us at the end of the day.”

In those last two games, the Sky Blues have kept back-to-back clean sheets, as they show how resolute they can be at the back.

“I think it's just like a team thing. We defend from the front and Walks (Tyler Walker) did that well the other night and he did it well against Birmingham.

“Everyone else chips in really and we've addressed it because we had conceded what we think far too many goals really and we should have you.

“Now we’re keeping clean sheets and you can see the determination from the lads to try and get the clean sheets as well so hopefully that can continue.”

This will mark Shipley’s fifth season as a member of the Sky Blues first team, as he has played his part in helping the Sky Blues climb through the tables.

The midfielder believes the pace and quality in the Championship is something he hadn’t experienced before in League One or Two, but he is enjoying the challenge and is relishing his opportunity in the side at the moment.

“The big difference is the pace of the games are quicker and the quality different. In the lower leagues it can be about team quality but in the Championship, sides have individual quality and it kind of sticks out a bit more.

“Teams have players who can change the game in an instant, but we also have players who can change games in an instant as well and we've got a good team.

“It’s very different from League One but now we are just finding our feet and starting to pick up points now and hopefully we can just carry on game by game and see where we get to.”
