PRESS WATCH: "In the two games I’ve been involved in, we really should have come away with four points." Coventry City's Dave Hockaday

The newest member of the Sky Blues backroom team believes that the side should have picked up four points against Preston and Scunthorpe...

Coventry City Under-21s coach Dave Hockaday told the Coventry Telegraph that he believed the side should have taken four points from their last two fixtures against Preston North End and Scunthorpe United.

The 57-year old recently joined Steven Pressley’s backroom staff and has also overseen the Under-21s’ first victory since October, an impressive 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra.

Hockaday, who also coaches the first-team, believes that the side have missed out on a bit of luck in recent weeks but admitted they need to show more of a threat in the attacking third in order to win matches.

“They are a very honest and fit group and I don’t feel they are getting the rub of the green at the moment,” Hockaday said.

“They can knock the ball about, play it and retain it and it’s very obvious that we need to be testing the opposition goalkeeper more and putting the ball in the back of the net more.

“We just need more threat, more purpose in the attacking third, and that’s what we’re working on.

“But the two games I’ve been involved in, we really should have come away with four points against Preston and Scunthorpe.

"It wasn’t the way and that’s how it goes when you are down near the bottom of the league, so we have to keep working hard. They are an incredibly honest group who work with massive intensity.”
