Sky Blues defender, Dom Hyam was pleased as City were able to extend their unbeaten run to six games after a 0-0 draw with Luton Town on Tuesday night.
The match was an even contest with Tyler Walker coming closest in the first half after a low strike ended up coming back off the woodwork.
Hyam pointed out it required something special for either side to break the deadlock, with the Sky Blues ensuring they at least came away with a point and making themselves hard to beat is something that can be used as a building block.
He said: “That’s six unbeaten and a clean sheet and I don’t think we were at our best but when you are not at your best you can’t lose; it is something to build on.
“It was one of those games where there were few chances and it could have been a bit of magic either way, in the end both teams settled for a point.
“They are a good team with talented players, and we have kept James Collins quiet who has scored goals at various levels.
“The volume of the games it takes its toll, Tuesday night is a quick turnaround and when it’s not flowing and as attacking as you like, we have kept in there and kept a clean sheet.”
Hyam spoke of the recent defensive improvements that has seen the Sky Blues record three clean sheets in six matches.
He expressed the importance of picking up points and how they must keep the current momentum going heading into a busy Christmas period.
He said: “If you want to improve that’s where you start off, we have given ourselves a solid base and we have just got to try to score more goals, I think the draws will help in the end as every point is important and we have got to keep going.
“It is all momentum, if you can’t win then don’t lose and we carry this on into Saturday and hopefully get a result there.“
