The Sky Blues' manager reflects on the victory over Millwall...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray felt his side deserved their win over Millwall, as his side managed to comeback from a goal down to win the game.


Byron Webster had put the visitors ahead, but a sensational strike from John Fleck and a Marcus Tudgay goal saw City take all three points at the Ricoh Arena.


The Sky Blues were repeatedly tested by the Lions in the dying moments of the game, but Mowbray’s men managed to see out the game to claim a well deserved victory.


“We managed to see the game home and on balance of play, I think we deserved the victory,” Mowbray said.


“Its never easy to play against 10 men, which we had to do for a hour, but I thought we played really well against them. We had total control until we went 2-1 up and then it became a bit nervous.


“Its almost like you have to learn how to win again, as we haven’t been winning. I thought in the last 20 minutes of the first half we had some great opportunities to score.


“I was looking at a stat this week which said we have only scored two goals three times in the last 20 matches, whereas in the first 20 matches of the season we scored two goals in 12 of those matches. But at the end of the day those are just stats and we won the game.”


The City boss also revealed that his team were determined to keep fighting till the end of the season, and try and claim as many points as they could.


“We have to see if we can finish strong,” the Sky Blues manager added.


“It is important the supporters of our club know we are still fighting for every point and I thought the team generally showed that today. We applied the talent we have at our disposal and managed to get the points.


"It was an amazing goal from Fleck which we know he can do, and I don't know exactly what Tudgay's minutes to goal ratio is, but it is pretty good this season and I am delighted he got on the scoresheet".
