'Win our individual battles' - Adams

13 December 2013

City left-back Blair Adams also hopes to see the club return to producing 'great results' at home...

Coventry City defender Blair Adams is eager to match the club’s away results with its home form, starting with the weekend’s game against Crewe Alexandra.

The Sky Blues are unbeaten away from home in five league games and Adams wants to bring that away form to Sixfields after faltering with two consecutive home defeats.

The City left-back said: “The two previous games have gone now, so tomorrow is an important game.

“We need to step out there and do what we did in the first half the season and be confident in the way we play and hopefully we will pick up the three points.”

City changed formation for the FA Cup game against Hartlepool, but will return to 4-4-2 this weekend. 

Adams believes this has helped refocus the squad on correcting the problems that plagued the defeats to Tranmere and Rotherham.

Adams continued: “We are comfortable in the way that we play. Last week, we had a few suspensions and injuries so we had to change the formation a little bit.

“The gaffer has said that we didn’t really look as comfortable as we have in our own formation.

“We know what we are doing, we know our roles and we are confident in the way that we play in that formation. It will be good to be back in that tomorrow, and we are looking forward to it.”

In four meetings last season, City were only victorious in one, including a 3-0 home defeat in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Northern Section Area Final. 

Ahead of the game against the Railwaymen tomorrow, the left-back is keen to play down the supposed gap between the two teams.

Adams added: “There is no easy game, they might be down the bottom of the league, but each game brings its own challenges and difficulties. We’ll have to be on our game to beat them.

“They've got some good players, we played them last season in the cup and they obviously progressed in the end. They have got a few of the same players and a lot of them have good quality. 

“It will be a tough game, we have to win our individual battles, and hopefully our quality will come through in the end.”
