'Build on first half of the season'

31 December 2013

The City centre-back wants the squad to find a high level of consistency going into the New Year...

Coventry City defender Andy Webster has urged the squad to find a 'high level of consistency' going into the New Year.

The Scottish international moved to the club in August and has made 24 appearances for the side this season, including starting against Peterborough United and Oldham Athletic. 

The former Hearts man was integral to the City side which went on a run of just two losses in 15 matches from August to November. 

The 31-year old wants to see the side return to that level of consistency going into the New Year and tomorrow's game at Rotherham.

Webster said: "We are looking forward to having a good year and returning to the form we showed in the early part of the season.

"We haven't been bad recently but the performances we had in the first few months of the season were exceptional and it would be good to see us return to that.

"The manner in which we played showed a high level of consistency and we haven't been able to replicate that lately. 

"We need to show more responsibility for conceding goals as that is something we can definitely improve on going into 2014."

The League One season has reached it's mid-point with City placed in the top-half of the table and just nine points off the play-off positions, despite starting the season with a ten-point deduction.

Webster believes the squad can be proud of their efforts so far, but must focus on improving for the next half of the season.

He added: "With the young team we've got and the ten points we had deducted at the start of the season, we've done exceptionally well.

"It is a great achievement but like anything in football, we've done that now and we have to look forward.

"These games, which are coming up thick and fast, are vitally important for us and can define the rest of the season. 

"It is important we go to Rotherham looking to claim the win as we know we are capable."
