'Result not what we deserved'

City boss Steven Pressley says he is disappointed to not have got the result that his side's performance meritted

Coventry City boss Steven Pressley said he was disappointed with the result but not the 'dominant' performance after the Sky Blues' 2-2 draw with Crewe Alexandra at Sixfields.

The Sky Blues recovered from Tom Hitchcock's early opener for the visitors when Franck Moussa equalised.

Callum Wilson's second half penalty gave City a 2-1 lead but Chuks Aneke then grabbed a point with a leveller for Crewe.

Pressley said: "I was disappointed with the result but not the performance. We gave a very good performance in what were horrendous conditions and we were so much in control of the game when we went in front that I thought there would be only one winner.

"We gave away disappointing goals though and let Crewe back into the game. We conceded purely on errors and at no time did I feel as though we were in danger because we looked like a very good unit.

"If we can stop conceding goals due to error then we will be an excellent side and I was pleased with the performance I saw. I asked for pressing and we got that as well as continuous possession and speed on the counter attack and I felt that our choices were very good.

"We acquitted ourselves well and when you go a goal down you look for the right response and we got that. I'm just disappointed that we didn't get the result that the performance meritted because we had total control of the game."
