"Hopefully this is the lowest that the club ever gets." - Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray

The Sky Blues boss now wants the club to rebuild after securing their League One safety with a 2-1 win over Crawley Town…

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has stated that 'things need changing at the club' after they secured their League One safety with a 2-1 win over Crawley Town.

Mathias Pogba gave the Red Devils the lead, but goals from Marcus Tudgay and a last minute James Maddison winner took the Sky Blues over the line and sent the Red Devils down.

Mowbray now wants City to restructure and recuperate over the summer now that their status in the third tier is assured.

"I'm relived for the club," he said. "If the starting point is League Two than it's a lot harder to start than being in League One.

"Hopefully this is the lowest that the club ever gets. I'll hopefully be having positive discussions with the owners this week.

"I want us to become a more professional outfit, some things have to change, but we have the summer now to start planning for a more successful season next time out.

"I want to enjoy the project and hopefully now we can start getting the wheels in motion."

Mowbray had special praise for the 1,700 strong travelling Sky Blue Army who were immense all afternoon.

He also had positive things to say about his players and the way they came back from a goal down.

He continued: "We've shown resilience away from home and it was the same today. I always thought we would get something from the game, even at 1-0 down.

"We have very hard working players and they have battled today. But with respect, we should be going to Crawley and winning, going to Fleetwood and winning.

"You have to have the infrastructure and the tools for everything to start happening. But one thing we do have is incredible support.

"The away fans here were immense, just like they have been since my time here. They kept behind the team and I'm glad we've sent them home with smiles on their faces."
