'We should be winning those games'

Coventry City defender Dan Seaborne enjoyed taking the captain's armband for the 0-0 draw against Shrewsbury Town.

The former Southampton man was given the skipper's role as club captain Carl Baker was named as a substitute. 

However, chances were few and far between for both sides at Sixfields as City witnessed a return for long-term absentee and City top scorer Callum Wilson.

Whilst admitting he was disappointed with the draw, Seaborne hopes the City defence can build on the clean sheet.

The City defender said: "I'm slightly disappointed as I think we should be beating teams here. We struggled to create the chances which were needed so we'll have to work on that.

"We were very solid at the back though which was positive. We restricted them to very few chances throughout the game so hopefully we can build on that and keep more clean sheets.

"We needed to get back to keeping some clean sheets as it was obvious to everyone we were conceding far too many goals.

"It was great to be captain. The club has a very good captain in Carl Baker but if he isn't playing, it's nice to know I can be depended on."

"The big positive was that we didn't lose the game and it gives us a basis to build on now going into the Walsall game."

Jordan Willis came into the side, replacing Cyrus Christie at right-back, and Seaborne believes the Academy graduate had a great game.

He added: "He came in and did very well. He is a very good player and he has always impressed me in training since I joined the club.

"Jordan Clarke also did really well as he is playing out of position at the moment but he hardly put a foot wrong.

"Jordan Willis definitely has a bright future in the game and if he keeps working hard, I'm sure he'll keep us on our toes.

"We had four centre-backs in defence today which probably shows why we were so solid today."
