INTERVIEW: Haji Wright on life in Coventry, his nine goals so far and Millwall test

City take on Millwall at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Sunday...

9 February 2024

Haji Wright says he wants to see Coventry City use the upcoming run of fixtures to establish themselves as a team with true top six credentials as the Sky Blues prepare for a run of five in just 19 days.

City will begin their busy end to February with a home fixture against Millwall before back-to-back away trip to Plymouth and Stoke.

Then will then end the month with games against Preston North End and Maidstone United, with the latter coming in the Fifth Round of this season's Emirates FA Cup.

On his role on the left of a front three:

It's nothing new to me. I've played it a lot. I have played in the winger role at both youth team level and senior level during my career. I am used to it and it feels good to play there.

There is a settling in period for me here in general but I now feel comfrotable being here, and being in Coventry.

Milan van Ewijk has helped that a lot. He is a fun guy to be around, with a lot of jokes and fun. He's a good player too, which helps.

He likes to celebrate. It would be great if he could celebrate a goal once in a while but, yeah, he's a big character.

On the goals that City are scoring from all over the pitch:

We have a lot of players in our team who can score goals and create goals. It's good because when we play against teams they don't really know who is going to be the player that week to change the game.

We have so many who can spark special moments and win us point.

Callum O'Hare is one of those. It is so difficult to come back from a bad injury and do what he is doing. It's really impressive.

On Sunday's meeting with Millwall:

It will be good. Last time out against Millwall, we played a good game in Millwall. It wil be difficult now for them to come to our stadium and play infront of our fans.

It will be a good game for us, hopefully. It feels good, the expectation that we now have on us. It means that we have set a level that we need to reach and it is a positive pressure.

On the run of upcoming games:

We concentrate on the next game, always. We're 100% excited for the games coming as it gives us a chance to establish ourselves in a solid position in the table.

Our aim is promotion and we will take every game for what it is and then, hopefully, we can win those games and move up the table.

On targeting more headed goals to add to his record:

I hope I score more headers. I'm six foot four!
