Sky Blues waiting on January window

Sky Blues waiting on January window

Chris Coleman was realistic in his verdict on Saturday's 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest after patching together a side from his injury-hit squad.

'I could be sitting here celebrating a win but (Lee) Camp has made a fantastic save (from Michael Mifsud in the 89th minute),' he said after an exciting game at the Ricoh Arena in which both sides had chances to take all three points.

'Having said that, I could be disappointed that we have got nothing from the game.'

City were missing a number of players but both Ben Turner and Aron Gunnarsson did well in defence, covering for Scott Dann and Stephen Wright respectively.

'At training yesterday, we only had 12 senior players fit so it's been difficult,' admitted Coleman.

'I am hoping the next transfer window is going to be fruitful for us.'

Prior to the window being opened, the Sky Blues have away trips to Charlton, Watford and Swansea and home games against Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday.

This week's visits in particular to The Valley and Vicarage Road have assumed a good deal of importance.

Both sides are currently below City in the table and come Christmas we have to hope that is still the case.

For his part, Nottingham Forest manager Colin Calderwood was pleased with his side's spirit at the end of a week in which his future has again been the subject of speculation.

'I know the players are playing for me because I only need to see what they do on the pitch and the amount of acres they cover,' he said.

'What I see excites me and lifts me. They believe they are good enough to stay in this division and we only find that out at the end of the season.

'The players have always had belief and they're not scared of anything but we've made some simple mistakes again today which have cost us points - and we've done that in the past. We need to eradicate them.'
