On-loan Coventry City midfielder Thomas ready to work for attacking rewards

Coventry City midfielder Luke Thomas has declared that he is willing to work extra hours on the training pitch to improve his goalscoring record during his stay at The Ricoh Arena.

The 19-year-old joined The Sky Blues on an initial half-season loan deal from Sky Bet Championship club Derby County but he has managed to find the back of the net just twice in a Coventry City shirt to date.

Thomas missed a couple of great goalscoring opportunities as Coventry City drew 1-1 with Peterborough United at The Ricoh Arena on Friday evening. Speaking to The72 after the match, the player admitted that he is ready to put in the work on the training pitch to improve his quality in the final third of the pitch.

“The manager has been brilliant with me” said Thomas. “He speaks to me day in, day out and I work on finishing on the training pitch most days.

“Maybe I need to do a little more behind closed doors and do stuff on my own.

“I’ll do that and hopefully I’ll find the back of the net on a more regular basis.”

Despite failing to collect three points, Thomas said that it was a good performance from his side and that they were unlucky not to get the win.

“I thought we just edged it on chances” the player added. “I say it every week but I should have scored again.

“If we get that first goal, we get the win but nevertheless, we showed great character to score straight away and come from behind.

Thomas’ outing against The Posh was his 18th in a Coventry City shirt and the midfielder admitted that he is loving life at the Sky Bet League One club.

Thomas said “I’m loving it, the lads are brilliant and they’ve made me feel so welcome since I came in.

“I couldn’t ask for anything more from the lads and the management team.”

Thomas will be looking to get his name back amongst the goalscorers when Coventry City face Fleetwood Town at Highbury on Tuesday evening.
