Danny Philliskirk is hoping that his performances for Coventry City U21's and his first team debut versus Leyton Orient on Saturday have been enough to win him a contract.
Philliskirk, who first came to City's notice after a storming game for Sheffield United U21's against City at the Alan Higgs Centre back in August, has put in some excellent appearances for the U21's since joining on a short term contract after his Blades contract expired on New Year's Day.
Those performances which included a goal against Leicester, saw the son of former Bolton and Sheffield United star Tony Philliskirk, brought into the first team squad and making his debut on Saturday in a position he was not accustomed to playing.
Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph's Andy Turner, Philliskirk said: “I have worked hard in the Under-21s with Lee Carsley and the lads and it’s nice to get a chance.
“We have got meetings with the manager on the 28th so we’ll find out then but I am just working hard on the football pitch to earn a new contract and hopefully I have done enough.
"But if not then I know I have done my best. I can’t do much more. I try to give my best every day in training and when I play I give 100 per cent.”
