In the Hot Seat: Chris Coleman - Coventry City
'I don't want the reputation of playing nice football with a team at the wrong end of the league'
Coventry City have endured a topsy-turvy start to the campaign and they currently lie in 14th after a great win at Birmingham City last night. Five points from the play-off zone and five points from the drop zone, this is a critical phase for the Sky Blues. They have languished in the Championship ever since relegation from the Premeir League and there have been more brushes with bankruptcy and relegation
In fact, they have endured two last-day survivals in the last four seasons but hopes were high of a revival under Chris Coleman and their new owners. But the bugbear of inconsistency still haunts Coventry and, as givemefootball.com discovered, Coleman will be hoping that the 1-0 victory at St Andrews is a catalyst to kick on and challenge the top six.
IT WAS A GOOD WIN FOR YOU AT BIRMINGHAM AND YOUR GOALKEEPER KIEREN WESTWOOD HAD AN EXCEPTIONAL GAME?
It looked like there was two of him in goal - Kieren was absolutely tremendous. I can't remember one save in particular that stood out as there were so many of them. In the second half he was absolutely
outstanding. We had 11 players who were up for it and I thought they were all tremendous although obviously Kieren was particularly outstanding.
WERE YOU PLEASED AT KEEPING A CLEAN SHEET AS THERE HAVEN'T BEEN TOO MANY FOR YOU THIS SEASON?
Birmingham are a very dangerous side offensively and strong going forward and we did well to frustrate them at times. When we got the goal they got frustrated because they couldn't find a way through us
and then the crowd turned on them, which was what we wanted. We gained confidence from that and should have scored a second when Jay Tabb has lifted one over the crossbar. Overall it was a good performance from us because this is a notoriously difficult place to come.
THERE HAVE BEEN SOME GOOD AND SOME NOT SO GOOD PERFORMANCES THIS SEASON HASN'T THERE?
