Sky Blues goalscorer says City will get better as the season goes on

Sky Blues striker Stephen Elliott says City wil not be getting too downhearted despite conceding a late equaliser in Tuesday night's 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.

Elliott put the Sky Blues in front with a goal on his home debut for the club but Nick Blackman netted an equaliser for the Blades with five minutes to go.

He said: "Personally for me it was obviously good to get the goal but it was disappointing not to then go on and win the game. That being said we've got some good positives to take into the game against Bury on Saturday.

"It took us a while to get going, we were a bit stop start in the first half and the gaffer said at half time that we needed a bit more urgency but as we go along we will get to know each other better and the performances will come.

"After taking the lead at home you want to see games out but it was not to be and we won't be getting too downhearted.

"It's a point on the board against one of the favourites and we won't beat ourselves up too much because we want to be in the right frame of mind for Saturday.

The 28-year-old also spoke of his partnership with Cody McDonald who provided the assist for his opener.

"It was a good flick on from Cody for the goal but we're still getting to know each other so hopefully soon enough you will see the benefits.

"You've got to give 100 per cent effort because then more often than not things will open up for you."
