“We are not going to get a similar type of performance every week, we huffed and puffed but it wasn’t to be”- Coventry City’s Tony Mowbray

27 February 2016

The City boss was disappointed not to have been able to build on the Bury result...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray was frustrated with the defeat against Fleetwood at the Ricoh.

Wes Burns had opened the scoring, putting the visitors ahead, before Marcus Tudgay equalised for City with his fourth goal of the season. However, David Ball secured the three points for the visitors, with an effort from 20 yards out.

Mowbray acknowledged expectation was high after the Bury result but felt the team still performed well.

The Sky Blue boss said: “We are not going to get similar types of performances every week.

“I thought we huffed and puffed today. I thought for the first 20 minutes we were very good and very dominant. We probably became a little bit over confident and played to their strengths, in trying to play through the middle of them. Whereas for 20 minutes we had played round the outside.

“They’re a decent football team. I saw them in midweek, dominate away to Rochdale. They have some good players and the position they sit in the league is probably a false one. But it is still a frustrating result for us”

The City boss added that although it was a frustrating result, the team needed to turn their attention to the next game, as promotion was still very possible and there was still a lot of football to be played.

He added: "We have to put defeats behind us.

"We probably have to win half our games now to give ourselves a chance of at least making the play-offs and getting out of this league. We are going to have to win a lot more than half our games if we are going to threaten the top two.

"However, when you look at the results It is still possible to string some back to back results together."
