Defender Lewie Coyle knows the importance of the last eight games of the season, and states the fans have a huge role to play in the last few weeks of the campaign.
Lewie Coyle is enjoying his second loan spell at the club after rejoining from Leeds United in the summer, but the versatile defender knows there’s still lots to play for with eight games to go.
The 23-year-old has featured 37 times for the Cod Army this season with roles at right back, right centre half, and in the middle of the park.
Coyle and his team mates are looking to finish strong in the 2018/19 season, and knows the fans will have a vital part to play come the final part of the campaign.
“I don’t think our season is over at all,” said Coyle.
“There are eight games to go and we are currently in a little eight game league, so if we can pick up three wins on the bounce, and teams around you drop points, you never ever know.
“It’s a long shot but you never know. There’s always a team that goes on a run and I hope that is us.
“We need all the fans to stay on board and help us try for one last push.”
The squad had the weekend off due to international break, and the defender knew the importance of resting, and also spending time with his family back home in Hull.
He added: “I live up here and that means I am away from my family a lot, so it was important that I went home to see them, as well as my girlfriend and have some down time.
“From the outside, people see football as this glamorous lifestyle and all the rest, and at times it is far from that.
“Players spent a lot of time away from family so most of the players on days off will go and spend it with them and enjoy that time.
“We have a close family. I have three brothers and it’s hard not having that time with them so this weekend was nice to see them, but it is part and parcel of being a footballer.”
