'We've got the momentum' - Webster

22 November 2013

City defender Andy Webster hopes to see the Sky Blues stretch their unbeaten run to eight games...

Coventry City defender Andy Webster believes last week's 3-3 draw at Bradford will serve as motivation to get all three points against Tranmere Rovers.

The Sky Blues face Ronnie Moore's side in a 2pm kick-off at Sixfields with City looking to stretch their unbeaten run to eight games in League One.

City could have took all three points against the Bantams last Sunday but were denied by a last minute penalty from Nahki Wells in a 3-3 draw.

Webster scored his first goal for the Sky Blues during the match and feels the draw will give the side an added motivation tomorrow.

The 31-year old said: "Sometimes, those results are hard to take especially in manner the result came about. When you concede a goal in the last minute, you almost feel as though you have lost.

"I suppose that is just part of football and we need to make sure that disappointment is out of our system. You take the positives from the game and you move on.

"We have looked over the game this week and we did a lot of good things. I think that feeling of disappointment at drawing a game will push us on this weekend.

"It is a game we are looking forward to. It isn't like we aren't playing well and the momentum we have currently got with the unbeaten run is great to be a part of.

"We've worked extremely hard to get to where we are at the moment and it isn't something you want to give up easily. I'm sure that we can keep it going tomorrow."

The former Hearts defender has achieved 28 international caps for Scotland but missed out on the last squad for the friendlies against USA and Norway.

Even though he was disappointed to be left out of the recent squads, Webster says it is always something he works towards.

He added: "Ultimately, you are always concentrating on your league form and achieving on the pitch with your club. 

"I don't want to make any headlines about it but it is obviously something you always look out for and something I am always interested in.

"I have to keep working hard at club level though and concentrate on that. What happens after that is beyond my control so it isn't something I can get caught up on."
