Chelsea loan star Jake Clarke-Salter earned some high compliments from Coventry City supporters on social media yesterday.
Clarke-Salter started and shone for the Sky Blues in their 1-0 Championship victory over Cardiff City last night.
The 23-year-old has really found his feet under Mark Robins, following his loan move away from Chelsea in the summer.
Wednesday evening’s win was the defender’s fifth appearance of the season, his third clean sheet and his ninth point.

Cardiff are certainly no pushovers, with Mick McCarthy’s side wielding height and physicality from front to back.
But Coventry, especially Clarke-Salter, parried the threat to ensure another sizeable second division scalp.
Fans of the West Midlander’s held the Chelsea loanee in high regard for his latest seminar in defensive shrewdness.
Here is how they reacted on Twitter:
Clarke-Salter is class. Very rarely loses a header and every pass is pinpoint, and forward thinking. Our recruitment is so good generally.— Tom Watson (@skybluetom87) September 15, 2021
