INTERVIEW: Michael Doyle Previews The Visit Of Wycombe Wanderers

The Captain looking forward to facing the Chairboys...

12 October 2018

As the Sky Blues get set to host Wycombe Wanderers at the Ricoh Arena tomorrow afternoon, Captain, Michael Doyle was reflecting on the start to the season.

Coventry currently lie in 14th position in League One with fifteen points to their name, three points and three places ahead of tomorrow’s opponents.

Doyle believes, looking back that City haven’t got the points their performances have deserved so far, but is confident that once thing start to click, more points will be on the board.

He said:You want to do as well as you can, looking back we probably haven’t come away with as many points as we should have.

“There are a lot of games that we let go of which we were in control of or gave ourselves too much to do, but there are a lot of positives with the way we’ve played.

“Once we start hitting the back of the net on a regular basis, we will get a lot more points than we already have.

“We’ve had a great base and we’ve been creating chances but similar to last year they are just not going in at the minute, but once they start I feel we will be a lot better off.

“We are playing as well as anybody in the league.”

Tomorrow’s opponents joined the Sky Blues in gaining promotion to League One last season, with the Chairboys gaining automatic promotion.

City came out victorious in both fixtures last season with a 3-2 win at the Ricoh Arena and a 1-0 win at Adams Park.

The City captain was on the scoresheet last time out against Wycombe at the Ricoh and he would take something similar to last season tomorrow.

He said: “I will take that; similar type of result would be great for us.

“Wycombe were really strong first half and we made the game difficult for them and then we came out with the 3-2 win.

“We had two tight games with them last year and managed to come out on top and I’m sure they will be aware of that, but for us we just got to focus on ourselves.

“The weather is changing, these are the games where its dark, wet and windy and these are six pointers for us, we want to win and should be winning if we want to do anything in the league.

“It is getting consistency; last week’s game realty means nothing in a sense if we can’t back it up this week.

“Last season in the play offs I said consistency was the issue, we had as good of players as anybody in the league, just consistently we didn’t do it enough. Hopefully we learnt something from last year and we can turn a corner.”
