Coventry City: Blair Turgott happy to be with Sky Blues

Blair Turgott celebrates scoring the winning goal in Coventry City's 1-0 win at Peterborough United.

Coventry midfielder Blair Turgott says he does not feel his move from Premier League side West Ham was a step down.

The 20-year-old joined the Sky Blues during the January transfer window but has made just two appearances for the League One side.

"I made the decision to leave West Ham to get some games under my belt and I wouldn't say it's a step down," he told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire.

"Whatever happens, starting or on the bench, I want to keep cracking on."

Turgott says he was urged to impress Coventry boss Tony Mowbray prior to their win over Peterborough on Saturday, in which he came off the bench to score the only goal.

Turgott's limited opportunities
Competition in the middle of the park for Coventry City is high as Sky Blues boss Tony Mowbray currently has 12 midfielders in his squad.

"I've not played recently but he said when I get a chance, show me what you're about and impress me," he said.

"The gaffer told me to make an impact and win us the game and thankfully that happened."

After signing on a short-term deal until the end of the season, Turgott wants to use his cameo appearance at London Road to push for a starting role.

"I waited for my opportunity and made sure I was ready and hopefully I have shown that I should be playing more," he added.

"The gaffer told me to be professional and in the next couple of games I want to push on and get some more games."
