Some Sky Blue reasons to be cheerful

Some Sky Blue reasons to be cheerful

After the doom and gloom that Saturday's result at Elland Road engendered, a couple of positive lines have come out of the Coventry City camp this week, all connected to the emerging young talent breaking through into the club's first-team squad.

Firstly Jordan Clarke, who after enduring a torrid time up against Leeds winger Max Gradel, gave the kind of interview to the Coventry Telegraph that it is refreshing to hear.

Foregoing the usual platitudes and cliches, Clarke said simply: 'I should have done better and I will do better'

'From this week I am doing extra in training - foot work and one v ones - and next time you see me I am going to be a different player, I'll tell you that now.'


Great stuff to hear from a young player (or indeed any player) and showing a determination to succeed that will hopefully carry Clarke through a successful career as a professional.

Another new name in the Sky Blues frame recently has been Josh Ruffels, named as a substitute in the past couple of squads and the receipt of fulsome praise from academy boss Gregor Rioch as part of a wider good news story on the amount of youngsters coming through the ranks.

'He is a naturally gifted footballer who links up well, puts good balls in the box and arrives at the back post from the left or central position,' said Rioch of the the midfield starlet.
