'We didn't take our chances' - Marshall

22 February 2014

The City winger also said he was delighted to get back out on the pitch after a hamstring injury...

Coventry City midfielder Mark Marshall believes the Sky Blues have to take their chances after the 3-1 defeat to Tranmere Rovers.

Ryan Lowe netted a 12th minute opener from the spot to give Rovers the lead at the break despite chances for captain Carl Baker.

Conor Thomas turned the ball into his own net just two minutes into the second-half and substitute Jake Kirby netted a third for the home side.

Mark Marshall produced a brilliant assist for Michael Petrasso's consolation goal but he believes the side could have scored more on the day.

The winger said: "It was a difficult day for everyone really. Obviously, we had the penalty against us but we should have been level at the break because their keeper produced some brilliant saves.

"The own goal was unlucky but we still made chances and that's probably what it comes down to at the end of the day. 

"There were many game-changing moments which didn't fall our way so we have to pick ourselves up from it. We know we have got goals in the side as we scored in the second half.

"I suppose when we have the strikers back in the side next week, we'll be able to score a few more."

Marshall made just his second appearance for the Sky Blues when he came on for Billy Daniels in the second half.

As well as providing an assist, the winger produced a lively substitute appearance and he was happy with his performance.

He added: "It was a great feeling to be out there and to come through the adversity that I've been through, I'm just happy to be out of the pitch.

"I enjoyed every minute despite the result because it is a great thing to play professional football, especially for Coventry.

"I always try and make the most of it. I was happy with my performance and it's always good to provide an assist.

"Hopefully I can get more minutes on the pitch throughout the rest of the season and have a positive influence on the season."
