JOR­DAN Pon­ti­celli in­sists he is happy to bide his time for more first-team ac­tion at Coven­try.

The 19-year-old striker – who plun­dered an im­pres­sive 27 goals for the Sky Blues’ un­der-18s last sea­son – scored his first for the se­nior side in a 2-2 Check­a­trade Tro­phy draw at Wal­sall in mid­week.

He said: “I’m al­ways ea­ger, never re­ally im­pa­tient. The gaffer likes hard-work­ing play­ers and you have to earn that place, so I am work­ing hard ev­ery day.

“I wanted to make sure I proved a point when I went on (against Wal­sall).”
