INTERVIEW: Jason Farndon Talks QPR Win

The Sky Blues made it back to back wins in 2019...

14 January 2019

The Sky Blues Under-23s made it back to back wins in 2019, following a 3-1 win over Queens Park Rangers at the Alan Higgs Centre.

City fell a goal behind midway through the first half, but turned it around in the second half, with three goals with no reply.

Morgan Williams put the Sky Blues on level terms after he headed home a well worked set-piece from a corner.

David Bremang was then brought down in the box and the referee pointed to the spot and dismissed the QPR man, resulting in the visitors going down to ten men.

Bremang stepped up and converted the penalty, before Reise Allassani added a third for the Sky Blues with a fine finish at the back post.

City could’ve added a fourth late on, as Bremang was brought down in the box yet again, but this time the ‘keeper guessed the right way to deny the striker a brace.

Jason Farndon’s side have now lost once in the last seven games and are on a run of three consecutive wins in Professional Development League action.

“It’s been a long week, having had two games in the space of five days and I think maybe you could see that in the opening 45 minutes.” Farndon said.

“It was disappointing to go a goal down, but we spoke about it at the break and I thought we were much better in the second half.

“We controlled the game from then on and we showed that ruthlessness which we spoke about on Monday that we didn’t see.”

City sit in fifth currently in the South side of the division and are just three points off the play-off places after 18 games.

“The first goal, you see that creativity from the set-piece and its good work from us and it’s a great finish from Morgan Williams.

“In hindsight we could’ve won by more then just the three, as David Bremang misses the penalty with a few minutes to go.

“The win means now we’ve lost just one of the last seven and we’re in good form and you can see that looking at the league table, we’re now just three points off the play-offs.”
