Edjenguele urges players to respond

16 September 2012

The City defender wants more from the squad...

Sky Blues defender William Edjenguele has urged the squad to respond quickly after the 2-0 defeat against Tranmere Rovers.

Jake Cassidy and Andy Robinson both scored within the last fifteen minutes of the game to send Coventry to their third straight defeat in League One. 

Despite controlling large parts of the game, Coventry travel to Shrewsbury on Tuesday looking for their first League win of the season but Edjenguele has backed the side to do just that.

The 25-year old said: "It will be difficult for me and the players to get over a result like that. It is never easy to play in a game where you look like you will win, but come out with nothing.

"We want to do better. We need to be more efficient at both ends of the pitch. We need to cut those errors in defence and then take our chances in attack.

"We are working hard and every team we have played this season, I have never thought they were any better than us. We are a good side but we need to work harder for the whole game.

"We don't have much time to think about it though and we need to make sure we improve and look forward to Tuesday's game."

Coventry had seven shots at Prenton Park showing they controlled much of the play before Tranmere went ahead in the 79th minute.

Edjenguele branded the two goals City conceded as 'sloppy'and says the players know they must do better.

He added: "I don't know how to explain how the game turned so quickly. We seemed to turn off at the back at the wrong moment and we were punished for it.

"They were two very sloppy goals to concede and we know we must do better in the future.

"The fans expect that and so do we. I believe we will get it right and when we do, it is important we get a good run going.

"We are hurting from that result but we have to get over it and refocus for Tuesday's game."
