Coventry City centre back Richard Wood believes that the signs are looking good for a successful first season in League One.

Wood told the CT, "With the lads who have come in so far, things are looking good for the new season. It was a good performance on Saturday, 8-0 is not bad when you consider the season before last we went to Hinckley and drew 0-0, so hopefully things are starting to look good in terms of getting a few goals.

"The players who have come are looking good in training and we've got a bit of experience in there as well in the likes of Kevin Kilbane who I think is a very good signing, and I'm looking forward to seeing his quality.

"The quality of the squad overall is really good and we are more than good enough to get out of League One. We've just got to try to adjust to what teams are going to do to us and how they are going to play against us, but if we make sure we play our football and cope with the physical side of it then hopefully we'll do fine, but we know it will be a big test."

Wood is fighting hard to secure his place in the team, he only started 12 games last season and spent the closing stages injured and requiring knee surgery.

He is hoping his recovery will continue on the  field tonight at Highland league side Brora Rangers.

He continued, "We're up in Scotland this week and I just want to get as many minutes under my belt as I can. I don't know if I will play in all three games but I am more than happy to because I want to play as much as I can to get my match fitness and sharpness right up so that I am ready and in the shirt from day one."
