One of our highest-calibre signings over the summer, Liam Kelly has slotted almost seamlessly into life at Coventry City. Very little of what Kelly does is particularly eye-catching, but he has formed a crucial partnership in the centre of the pitch, alongside Michael Doyle, which has not only provided a screen in front of the defence, but has added the more intangible elements to a team that experienced campaigners provide, allowing us to hit the ground running in League Two.

At times, it feels as if we would benefit from a more dynamic and creative presence in the centre of the pitch than Kelly and Doyle supply. While Kelly is the more mobile of the duo, he’s not exactly a playmaker, nor is he someone looking to get into the penalty area. However, that seems to be more of a tactical issue for Robins to consider than a concern in Liam Kelly’s game. Aside from a couple of poor performances in the back-to-back defeats against Newport and Yeovil, Liam Kelly has been one of our most reliable performers this season.
