JORDAN Turnbull could not hide his delight after helping the now managerless Sky Blues secure a fourth clean sheet of the season in Saturday’s 2-0 victory away at Port Vale on Saturday.
Goals in each half by Marvin Sordell and Chris McCann earned the Sky Blues their long-awaited first win of the season and moved the struggling club off the bottom of the League One table.
Summer signing Turnbull, who was making his eighth league start of the season, admits getting three points was a ‘relief’ and now the 21-year-old is calling on his team mates to build on Saturday’s win and make a push up the table.
“All the squad are delighted with not only the result but the performance out there as we controlled most of the game and finished the chances when we created them,” said Turnbull.
“It’s a difficult place to come, you just have to look at their start to the season and I felt we handled that fantastically.
“We showed what we are capable of but it is now about building on that and not sitting back and relaxing.
“I enjoy games like that. We are both sides that look to get the ball down and play football the right way, but in the end it got a little more physical which is enjoyable to play in as well.
“I thought me and Willis looked comfortable for the majority of the game, but that was helped by everyone. Sterry and Page defended their wings very well and the midfield pressed superbly.
“Defensive shape comes from the whole team, to the forwards pressing their back line to the rest of the side winning their individual battles. I thought that aspect of our game was very good.”
