"It is a disappointed dressing room. It is frustrating with the chances we had." - Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

12 January 2016

The Sky Blues boss also believes the Burton Albion represents a good opportunity to bounce back at the weekend...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray expressed his disappointment following the 1-1 draw against Walsall.

Chris Stokes' header had put the Sky Blues ahead but Walsall's top-scorer Tom Bradshaw found the net in the second-half to send a point back up the M6.

The Sky Blues pick up a point which means they stay in fourth position in League One, on 48 points and with Walsall on 49 points in third.

Mowbray admitted the dressing room is disappointed with the result and believes City should have wrapped up the result earlier.

The City boss said: "The dressing room is hugely disappointed because of the nature of the game. I think for an hour, we've controlled the game.

"It seemed the team pressing for the goals was us and we had several chances to put the game to bed. If they go in, we take the points I'm sure.

"I think I'm right in saying they've scored with their first shot on target so it's hugely frustrating when we've had numerous chances at the other end.

"Give credit to Walsall though as they're a good side who play football really well with the goal and they've showed tonight why they're at the top end of the league.

The Sky Blues face Burton Albion at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday and Mowbray has pinpointed that game to put the result right.

He added: "Adam Armstrong made their keeper pull off a great save and also Jim O'Brien put his shot wide early in the second-half.

"We're left very frustrated even though you could say they controlled the last 20 minutes or so but we get another chance to put it right against Burton on Saturday.

"It's another tough test for us and I'm sure the players will want to get into that game straight away, especially because of the fantastic support we received once again tonight."
