“It’s not easy to take, especially with the recent run of form. It gave us a lift and there was a bit of hope there." - City's Jordan Willis

City skipper Jordan Willis left disappointed, despite valiant Sky Blues performance...

Coventry City resigned to relegation after draw with visiting side Charlton, in the wake of yet more fans protests.  

The home side dominated in the second-half, after George Thomas' opener, but couldn't capitalise on pressure to eek out the win.

Jordan Willis said: “It’s not easy to take, especially with the recent run of form. It gave us a lift and there was a little bit of hope always there. It was always going to be hard to take whenever it was.

“Of course we went out fighting, I think you can tell that by our performance and we were unlucky not to come away with the win. The lads are disappointed, the feeling is not the best.

“Everyone is down, but we’ve got three games left of the season and we have to give the fans something something to cheer for and gain some momentum heading into next season."

The Sky Blues travel to Rochdale on Monday, the first of their final three League One fixtures. 

Willis added: “It’s not going to be hard to motivate ourselves for the remaining fixtures. The manager told us all in the dressing room we have to keep going, we have to be mentally strong and go again on Monday.

“We all know ourselves we have not been good enough. It hurts, when we got relegated from the Championship and I was just breaking into the side it hurt, and to be a part of one is even worse.

“The fans have been fantastic, always supporting us even when times have been tough recently, all I can say is stand by us and the plan will be to try and bounce back next season.”
