Coventry City defender Jack Stephens wants to see the Sky Blues score more goals following the 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic.

Tony Mowbray's suffered a narrow defeat against the Latics on Saturday as Will Grigg's second-half strike sealed the three points for the league leaders.

The Sky Blues have now only scored two goals in the last five games with City now placed in 13th place in the League One table.

Stephens admitted the result was a tough result to take as he believed there wasn't much between the two sides in the 1-0 defeat.

The City defender said: "It's tough for us to take as it was 0-0 for such a long time and I didn't feel as though there was an awful lot between us.

"It's frustrating as I thought we played quite well in spells, especially in the first-half where we were the better side but we couldn't make the most of it.

"It was a competitive match against the best team in the league and we've competed for the vast majority of the game so I really feel as though we should have got something.

"When it isn't going for you, you can't get too down. We've got to get back in on Monday and work hard at what's gone wrong to put it right next week."

The Sky Blues face two tough games at the Ricoh Arena against Millwall and Bradford City, and Stephens believes the whole side should take responsibility for the lack of goals.

He added: "One of the only differences between the two sides was confidence. That's now 20 games unbeaten for them so you're always going to feel more confident when you're on a run like that.

"When they got the break-through, they had a confidence that they were going to win the game. We need to score more goals but it isn't just the strikers, everyone needs to take responsibility.

"Everyone needs to chip in really. We're not scoring enough goals at the moment and we need to be able to create more chances. It isn't happening for us at the moment and it's really frustrating."
