"I'm not going to stand here and say we played well. But three points is massive." Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray

14 March 2015

The Sky Blues boss was thrilled to get the three points but says there is a long way to go in this League One season…

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has stated that the Sky Blues 3-2 over Chesterfield is 'massive'.

Goals from Marcus Tudgay, Sanmi Odelusi and Frank Nouble secured three crucial points for City, who pulled further clear of the SkyBet League One relegation zone.

Mowbray however has said that there is a lot more to do before the Sky Blues' League One safety is secured.

"It was a massive three points," he said. "It will mean so much to this football club.

"I won't stand here and say we played really well because we didn't. I think we played the best stuff when we had the ball, getting the right people into the right positions.

"There's still a lot of work to be done and I still want to improve certain aspects but to come away from home, score three goals and win is very pleasing.

"The first goal was great wing back play from Jordan Willis who put a great ball in and Marcus has done fantastically well to get to that ball first and head home.

"Frank has also done great for his goal and kept a cool head. We have done well to come here and win, there will be many more tough matches so we have to remain focused on staying in this division.

Mowbray praised substitute Odelusi with his impact when he came on, including the goal to send City 2-1 up after great work from debutant Grant Ward

He also gave words of encouragement to Nouble who became City's top scorer this season after his goal today.

He continued: "Frank has become our top scorer and had a good game, he forced mistakes from defenders and was a constant threat.

"Sanmi made a great impact too. I'm not going to take credit for the substitution, football is a squad game and he played his role superbly today.

"We now need to take this momentum into the next game, there are tough battles ahead and I want the fans and players all to be together. It's in our hands."
