“I think we went to new heights today and we just have to go again and keep working.” - Coventry City’s Marcus Tudgay

Both starting strikers net for City, but can only earn their side a point...

The Sky Blues were denied victory as they went in search of the first three points of the New Year, drawing 2-2 with visitors Bolton Wanderers. 

An injury time goal from Max Clayton gave the away side a point after debutant Stuart Beavon had played a part in both City’s goals. Marcus Tudgay had put City ahead, while Beavon netted City’s second - capping a fine debut performance.  

Tudgay spoke after the game on the disappointment of conceding such a late goal: “I think we went to new heights today,” said the City forward.

“Our passing, movement, fitness and work rate were good and we have come off the pitch disappointed.

“When I walked into the changing room, it felt like a defeat. We are disappointed and so is the Gaffer.

“When we come in tomorrow we have to go again and just work on starting to build for the next game. 

“To get the goal was very pleasing for myself but as a whole we are disappointed not to get the three points.” 

Tudgay also commented on being selected as captain for today’s game in place of the absent Jordan Willis. 

“It was a privilege,” Tudgay added. “There was a lot of experience out there in Clarke, Beavon and Callum in the middle, and I thought the mix of them and myself worked well.

“We have individuals who can do something but as a group you need experience.”
