The Sky Blues have fallen to successive defeats in League Two after defeat against Yeovil Town at Huish Park...
A goal in each half handed the Glovers all three points, and midfielder Liam Kelly believes it's another learning curve, with mistakes costing City early on in games.
"I thought we started the game well and looked the stronger team but gave away a free goal almost and we've not recovered from that," Kelly said.
"We have to find ways to unlock them, but saying that we've had two stonewall penalties turned down and if things change it could have been a different game.
"We can't make excuses. We should be creating more chances and scoring more goals. The lads are disappointed, we've given away cheap goals in two games now. We need to make sure we start right and not have to play catch up.
Attention now turns to the Checkatrade Trophy with the Sky Blues hosting League One side Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night.
"It's good to have another game quickly. We had great success in the competition last season so we want to do well again and it's a chance to put things right again.
"We just need to try and win games. Performances are okay, but we just need to collectively as a team be better. We can't afford to be losing two games on the bounce,"
He added: "You have to get used to the physicality, I played in this league last year and teams are going to try and make it difficult for you."
