'We will give nothing but 100%' - Baker

Coventry City captain Carl Baker wants to see the Sky Blues claim nine points in the three remaining League One matches.

City's unbeaten home form under manager Steven Pressley stretched to four games as Baker's penalty secured a point against the Bees.

City face Crawley Town, Leyton Orient and Notts County in the final three games of the 2012/13 season and the City captain is determined to claim nine points. 

Baker said: "We want to do well for the club but also for ourselves. We have to go out and approach every game in the right way, always looking to win.

"At the end of the day, we are professional footballers and if you have gone out and haven't gave 100%, you shouldn't be able to look at yourself in the mirror.

"I think the lads have gave their all this season and it is disappointing the way it is fizzling out a bit but that doesn't mean we give any less on a match-day.

"We want to get nine points out of the last three games. We all know how the fans have travelled away from home this season and with two of the three away, I am sure we will be strongly backed and that is our motivation."

Ryan Haynes came into the City side to make his City debut with Jordan Stewart suspended from his red card at Walsall.

Callum Wilson also made his first City start and Baker has praised the Coventry City Academy system for continually supplying the first team with talented youngsters.

He added: "I thought Ryan (Haynes) did well today. He was a bit nervous at the start but we have all been like that on our debuts.

"He really grew into the game and looked really comfortable on the ball. The club owes a huge debt to the Academy staff who just keep producing talented young players.

"Callum (Wilson) worked very hard today and it would have been nice for him to cap off a good performance with a goal. He did well holding the ball up and again, got better with every minute.

"Huge credit has to go to the Academy as they keep providing us with quality players and hopefully they can continue doing that.

"All the work they do down the Academy is incredibly important for the future of the football club."
