Reice Charles-Cook reflect's on City's goalless draw against the Latics at the Ricoh...
Goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook is hoping his side can build on the Sky Blues’ recent defensive run at the Ricoh and turn those performances into three points.
Today’s result made it three clean sheets in the league at home this season, but the 22-year-old was still left frustrated with his side’s result against Oldham.
The game finished goalless with little to choose between the two sides, as chances seemed hard to come by for the majority of the game. He said: “We have to focus on the positives and what we can work towards going forward and from a defensive point at the Ricoh it has been okay.
“Of course, we are disappointed not to pick up more points than we have and we will learn from that as a team and come back stronger as the season goes on.
“People compare the side to last season, but we are only looking at what we can do as a group now. It is early in the season and there are plenty of points still to play for so we won’t panic anytime soon.”
Marcus Tudgay and Marvin Sordell had City’s best efforts but couldn’t score past a well-organised Latics unit. Charles-Cook believes it is important to continue to focus on where his side can improve, in the hunt for that elusive win.
He added: “It was disappointing for us today and it is quite simply a lack of goals that are hindering us at the moment.
“We had some decent chances and usually the lads would finish them nine times out of ten, but that is the way it is going at the moment.”
He finished by saying: “I know the characters in this dressing room and they’re all good enough to come through this and start scoring goals. We see it everyday in training what this squad is capable of and now it’s time to show that in the games.”
