"Disappointed with the performance but it's a magnificent result for us." - Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

3 November 2015

The Sky Blues record another three points to go third, but the City boss wants more from his side...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray was disappointed with the performance despite the 4-3 win over Barnsley.

The Sky Blues ended up on top in a thrilling encounter as a brace from Adam Armstrong and goals from Ryan Kent and Joe Cole secured the three points.

City move into third position in the League One table, just one point behind the leaders Walsall but Mowbray wants City to strive for more.

The City boss said: "It was important to get the three points tonight. It was always going to be a difficult game and Barnsley gave us a real test in the second-half.

"I do feel as though the efforts of the weekend have caught up with us at the weekend. I think that was very evident in the second-half when we were pressed back.

"I'm disappointed with the performance ultimately, as the performances will dictate the results going forward and that's the most important thing.

"Here's me moaning, we scored four goals. And there were off extremely good quality as well so we should be happy with the way we're taking chances."

The City boss continued by saying he'll continue his search to bring in a player on loan to act as cover for City's defence.

He added: "We've got defensive responsibilities of course and we've got to cement them up pretty quickly I would have thought.

"Watching that game tonight, the goals we conceded will give a lot of teams confidence when they come up against us so that has to be changed.

"We've made dozens of enquires to look to bolster our defensive options and we'll continue to try throughout the week.

"We've got to make sure we get the right person in though and we need the right type to come in and make a difference for us."
