Sky Blues defender Tom Davies was left frustrated following City’s 2-1 defeat to Burton Albion.
The centre back was drafted in to the starting eleven following an injury to Dom Hyam, making his first start since facing Blackpool in January.
However, strikes from Lucas Akins and Jamie Allen either side of a Tom Bayliss goal handed City their first defeat in six.
“It was a tough game, obviously the goal was a backstep for us and then we knew at half time that we had to come out quickly and I felt like we did that, and things were looking up.” He said.
“The sending off does change the game and it was going to be tough for us from then.
“We stuck at it, we have a young group who need to keep going and I felt like we did that tonight and its unfortunate that the second goal went in.
“We huffed and puffed, and it is unfortunate that we couldn’t get another one.”
The Sky Blues drew level in the game when Tom Bayliss netted his third league goal of the season and had a golden opportunity to go in front when Luke Thomas hit the post.
“Luke is a great player, it is a great ball from Bayliss to put him through and it is guilt edge, but these things happen, and we aren’t going to take every chance and its up to us to keep them out the other end.” He said.
“It’s a frustrating night, they are a good side and they are one of the ones up there challenging so its frustrating.
“We are a young team and we are encouraged to try things which aren’t always going to come off. It can feel a bit anxious and the noise from the ground can have an effect on the players, but we’ve been told from the manager and from the staff that we need to rise above that.
“If we keep doing the right things then I am sure that the results will come.
“We have been on a good run of results and it is an unfortunate setback tonight but hopefully we have a game coming quick on Tuesday where we can get back on track.”
