"It’s been a working week, a productive time and we’ll see on Saturday how much impact it has had.” - Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

Sky Blues manager Tony Mowbray is hoping a full week’s preparation will help his side as they face a strong Millwall outfit at the Den tomorrow. 

City make the trip to London having yet to earn three points this season, but with no midweek fixture the team have had the chance to improve on certain aspects on the training pitch. 

Still early in the season, Mowbray is looking forward to the challenge Millwall pose: “It’s been a working week, a productive time and we’ll see on Saturday how much impact it has had,” Mowbray said.

“It is important for any club, particularly one with a lot of new players as we can work with them closely for a number of days before the actual game and that’s always beneficial.

“We’ve been working on attacking movement and trying to create better goalscoring chances, but also the defensive side and cutting out individual errors. It has been the first week since pre-season we’ve been able to do it efficiently.” 

Despite the Sky Blues not picking up the desired amount of points so far, Mowbray has insisted confidence is not an issue as they aim to pick up their first league win of the season.

“I think confidence is an individual thing and players react in different ways, but the group are still bright and confident in their own abilities to go out there and win football matches. 

“We’ve been working with every player individually this week and going through what they could improve on, but also what they have done very well so far this season – it’s about constantly learning and improving,”

He added: “We will approach the game in a good and positive mood. We are all very aware of the result’s so far but it is important we take our performances in spells into a 90 minutes and then we will pick up more points.”
