As the Sky Blues make the trip to Millwall tomorrow afternoon, midfielder Gustavo Hamer hopes to continue his side’s impressive form away at The Den.
Upon the Sky Blues’ return to the Coventry Building Society Arena this season, Hamer has been delighted with how the role of the fans has helped push the team on to winning games in late moments.
“It’s been amazing.” Hamer said.
“You could see it in the last few games at home with the 95th minute goal, the 98th minute goal; that’s because of the crowd as they keep pushing for us, so that’s extra motivation.
“We’ve played well with five wins now. We’ve had really good games at home and we’re in a good position so we can’t complain.
“It’s really nice; it’s a big stadium, it feels like home.”
Adding to his praise for the Sky Blues supporters, the midfielder also described how it feels to have his own song for the very first time.
“I haven’t had a song before, so I’m really pleased and it’s nice to have that much trust from the crowd as well.
“They bring so much positivity into the stadium, so you feel that you can do more when you feel the power from them. You have more energy because they have that much energy when you feel it in the stadium.
“I hear it before the game, and then during the game I’m so focused that I don’t really hear everything, but then when it’s a set piece and I walk to take the corner I hear the fans screaming again.
“I enjoy when they sing my song and when they sing songs for every player, so it’s been really good.”
With the test of Millwall up next, Hamer assessed how his side has performed so far this season in comparison to the last campaign.
“I think we played well last season, but we didn’t score enough. At the moment, Viktor [Gyökeres] is on fire and he’s scored four goals already I think, so that’s an unbelievable stat in seven games.
“We’re more ruthless than last season to be fair.”
Hamer will take on Millwall away at The Den at 3pm tomorrow, before returning to the Coventry Building Society Arena for further SkyBet Championship action on Friday 24th September.
