Coventry City striker Josh McQuoid felt that he should have had a penalty as the Sky Blues lost 2-0 to Bristol City in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern Section Semi-Final and that the team's final pass was lacking on a frustrating night at Ashton Gate.

A challenge by Luke Ayling on McQuoid was waved away by referee Stephen Martin in the first half, after a period in which City dominated possession.

McQuoid admitted his frustration, but also said there were positives from the Sky Blues' performance.

"Overall we were the better side," he said.

"We kept the ball and were composed at times. But ultimately the result was the most important thing and we didn't get that.

"It certainly felt like a penalty at the time. He's come in unfairly and gone over the ball. He did get the ball eventually but got more of me than he did the ball.

"However if we pass the ball like that more often it will give us confidence. The pitch was lovely, you didn't have to worry about bobbles or anything. Let's hope we can do that more often soon at home."

Next up for City is Port Vale in SkyBet League One on Saturday and McQuoid feels that the side can go to Vale Park with confidence following tonight's efforts and was also happy with his overall performance.

He continued: "Next is to get a win. At times the performance was there. We just lacked that killer ball and killer pass, it was frustrating.

"But it is good to be back playing tonight. It's great to be playing football, there's been too many loan players at the club but I can't help that situation.

"I am just doing what I can in training and as a team we can go to Port Vale Saturday and look to get a result."
