"It was a poor day. We need to turn our possession into goals." - Coventry City's Aaron Martin

26 December 2014

The City defender has called on the entire Sky Blues XI to chip in with more goals following the 2-0 defeat...

Coventry City defender Aaron Martin has admitted his frustration with City's possession dominance after the 2-0 defeat to Doncaster Rovers.

First-half goals from Andy Butler and Harry Forrester sealed the win for the home side at the Keepmoat Stadium on Boxing Day.

The Sky Blues enjoyed plenty of possession but struggled to create chances as a bad day was made worse in the second-half when both Adam Barton and James Maddison were sent off for two bookable offences.

Martin expressed his disappointment with the result and believes City have to do more to score goals.

The City defender said: "Obviously, we're massively disappointed. It was a poor day for us and we've just got to pick ourselves up from that today.

"The early goal was a poor goal to concede and we've got to do better in those situations. We've got to put that behind us and move on to Sunday.

"It's really frustrating because we're keeping the ball so well and dominating games but we're not scoring goals and that is all that matters.

"Once it clicks and we do start finishing chances, I think we can do really well but it's not coming off for us at the moment."

The City loanee believes the entire side need to do more to score goals ahead of Sunday's game against Chesterfield.

He added: "It's everybody. We all need to chip in and it's not just about the strikers scoring goals.

"Gary Madine is working tirelessly up there on his own and playing really well. The goals need to come from all of us. 

"I wouldn't say the confidence is low. Obviously, the result is disappointing but it is a simple case of finishing chances.

"If a few moments went the other way for us today, it could have been a different story."
