Blair targeting promotion

Former Sunderland defender speaks after joining Coventry.

Blair Adams has his sights firmly set on promotion after swapping Sunderland for Coventry.

The 21-year-old joined the Npower League One club on a permanent basis late last week.

Adams had been on loan at the Ricoh Arena and hopes he can crown the transfer with promotion glory at the end of the season.

Speaking to Coventry’s official website, he said: “The gaffer has given me a chance here so hopefully I can repay him with good performances and try to help us get back in the Championship.

"He's picked up things I need to improve on and he's been brilliant for me and helped me a lot so hopefully I can continue to improve while I'm here.

"Some of the results we've had in the last few weeks have been brilliant and we need to keep going and take it one game at a time and pick up as many points as we can, especially at home, because if we can turn draws into wins then hopefully we can be in and around the promotion mix."

City are now within touching distance of the play-off places having recovered from a difficult start to the season.

And Adams says he’s enjoying his football under Mark Robins as the former Manchester United striker looks to guide City back into football’s second tier.

"It's been brilliant here and I've enjoyed every minute of it,” Adams explained. “I've played plenty of games that have been coming thick and fast and the lads and the gaffer have been brilliant with me.

"It's been tough because we've had some difficult games but I've enjoyed that as well because that's what I'm here for.

“Hopefully I've put in some good performances for the team and the gaffer has seemed pleased with me because he's signed me so I hope I can carry on."
