'Biggest win of the season' - Seaborne

26 March 2014

The City defender also believes the same mentality is needed to get another three points on Saturday...

Coventry City defender Dan Seaborne believes the win at home to Stevenage is the biggest win of the season for the Sky Blues.

Seaborne scored the only goal of the game, but is keen to play down his achievements and instead puts emphasis on a team victory.

Seaborne said: “More importantly we got the win, that’s more important than me scoring a goal, so I’m glad we got the three points.

“That was the main thing tonight, there was a big question mark over us over the past couple of games, so it was massive three points for us, probably I would say, the biggest three points of the season.”

Along with three changes to the side, manager Steven Pressley switched to a 5-3-2 formation in an effort to sure up the defence.

“It wasn’t the prettiest of games, but you have got to win ugly sometimes, as the manager said. 

“That was one of very few we’ve won ugly. It was time we needed to bring that into our game, it was an enjoyable game in defence to play in.”

“We could have been better o.n the ball at times, but we need to won ugly and we done that tonight.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s game against Crewe, Dan Seaborne has hinted that this mentality may be needed again.

The City defender continued: “It was a big game, and we have a massive game on Saturday, so we need to take momentum into that game.

"They like to play a different way to Stevenage so we have to look at it before the game and make sure we are ready.

"We might need to take that same battling mentality into that game though as that is what is needed at this stage of the season

In the narrow victory against Graham Westley's side at Sixfields, the City defender bagged his first goal for the club, but despite it being a thumping header into the corner of the Stevenage goal, he can’t remember much about the goal.

He added: “I can’t really tell you much about the goal. It is about time I scored a goal, I’ve had a good few opportunities at this club. 

"I said to my Mum and Dad, Nan and Grandad it’s been coming and they’ve been urging me to score and it’s been coming. I hope it’s the first of many now.”
