INTERVIEW: Rod McDonald on the defeat against Accrington Stanley

Defender shares his thoughts following 1-0 loss...

14 October 2017

Coventry City defender Rod McDonald reflected on a 'very disappointing' 1-0 loss at Accrington Stanley.

Sean McConville's goal after 15 minutes proved enough for the hosts to take all three points from Saturday's fixture at the Wham Stadium.

Reflecting on the result, the defender said "Very disappointing. We go into every game looking to get a win but we weren’t good enough, so we’re very disappointed."

When asked about the goal scoring ability of the Sky Blues side, McDonald said he was hopeful that there are goals around the corner for Mark Robins' team.

"Scoring has been a bit of a problem for us at the moment. Hopefully it will click for us. We’re thirteen games in, but we have to stay positive and hope the goals will come.

"We see them every day and we know they can score goals. I think as soon as we do it, it will just come and then the goals will flow."

The Sky Blues are back in action on Tuesday night against Forest Green at the Ricoh Arena, and the defender is glad of the quick turnaround.

"I prefer playing Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday, I wish I could do it every week to be fair. When you lose on a Saturday and you have to wait until next Saturday, it can play on your mind.

"Now you go home, have a think about it, rest day on Sunday then we’re back in on Monday and a game the next day so it comes thick and fast."

"The players we have in the dressing room, we’re capable of winning beating anyone in this league. Every game will be tough, we’ve just got to work hard every game and hopefully it happens."
