INTERVIEW: Jonathan Panzo previews Hull City clash

The Sky Blues face off against the Tigers this Saturday…

26 August 2022

Sky Blues defender Jonathan Panzo is anticipating a good but difficult game against Hull City on Saturday, as he and his teammates return to Championship action.

It has been two weeks since Mark Robins’ side were last in competitive action but now face a run of six games in 21 days.

That run will begin against the Tigers at the MKM Stadium, ahead of which the players have been keeping themselves fit by staging behind-closed-doors friendly fixtures at The Sky Blues Lodge.

“Everyone has been working hard and we’re ready for this weekend,” Panzo said.

“It’ll be a good game and a difficult one, but I feel with the way we’ve been training, and the way we’ve been working hard, we can go there confident and get a win.

“I want to keep my place in the team, show everyone what I can do and hopefully get the wins as well, in this difficult division.

"We've not yet had the results that we wanted. We drew with Sunderland and lost to Millwall. We played well in that game but now it’s about getting the results.”

With extensive work on the pitch at the Coventry Building Society Arena having proven successful, next Wednesday’s clash with Preston North End will go ahead as panned.

Panzo, who is yet to play before fans at the club’s home stadium, shared his excitement at the prospect of making his home debut under the lights in just a few days time.

“It’s good news for us because we want to get some momentum and get some wins, so it’s a positive for us,” he continued.

“I want to be in front of the fans and to show them what I’ve got. I can’t wait to play.

“It’s always different in away games - but when it’s at home, when my family will be there and the City fans supporting us, it’ll feel good to be back.

“In the meantime, we’ve just stayed focused and kept doing what we can do and controlling what we can control.”

He added: “We’re still in a good place.”
