Tony Mowbray talks Bradford City, while plans are starting to be made for player recruitment next season...
The Sky Blues play host to in-form Bradford City in tonight’s League One fixture, with the game the final evening kick-off of the campaign for Mowbray’s men.
Bradford enter the tie unbeaten in five, while City come off the back of a buoyant performance against Millwall and a welcome three points.
City manager, Tony Mowbray has emphasised that his squad is concentrating on claiming as many points from the final twelve on offer this season, with the Sky Blues set to face Doncaster, Sheffield United and Oldham in coming weeks.
Mowbray said: “We’ve had plenty of wins this season, this is just the build up to the next game. Bradford are obviously a very hard working team who are capable of grinding out results and find themselves in a good league position.
“I feel for everybody associated with the football club, the players and fans included, the disappointment and frustration of the last couple of months.
“The season isn’t done, we have to keep fighting for every single point. There is no team that we fear, there are no teams that are going to be miles better than us. But I barely ever look at league standings. The answer is to try and win the next game.”
The Sky Blues boss has also commented on the foresight for next season, as he looks to build a consistent squad for City’s future.
He added: “There will be a lot of changes next season, we have a lot of players out of contract. We are going to try and pick the right games to test some of the younger players.
"We are sifting through players at the moment, people who will fit the blueprint for us. The loan market changes next season, we have to try and develop relationships with clubs who have players available.
“My desk is full of reports from scouts and agents, we want to get eyes on players to identify who will be a part of the club next year.
“You have to build a foundation of players that are Coventry City players, under contract. And if you like them you have to improve their contract, keep them hungry and keep adding quality around them. The core stays the same.”
