Breathing space for Sky Blues

Breathing space for Sky Blues

Coventry City can begin looking upwards after Tuesday night's win at Charlton.

The manner of the victory as much as the result pleased Chris Coleman, with his side dominating much of the play and recovering immediately from conceding a goal.

'The lads deserved it, over the 90 minutes we were the better team,' he said.

'We had more chances, played more controlled football and I am delighted with the players.'

City fans earned the manager's praise after Saturay's game against Nottingham Forest and he again voiced his approval of the support at The Valley.

'Our fans were fantastic, from the first minute to the last and a big thank you to them,' Coleman told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire.

The win leaves the Sky Blues six points away from a play-off place but more importantly, ten points above the relegation zone.

Saturday's trip to Watford marks the halfway point of the season.

For Charlton, defeat added to the gloom and doom surrounding the club at present.

'I'll fight on for as long as I'm in charge and I'll continue to work hard,' said caretaker manager Phil Parkinson.

'If we are going to fail as a team I want to fail having rolled up our sleeves and having a go, but we looked a nervy side.

'I totally understand the lack of confidence at the club, but we have to show more passion, commitment and desire - that's not good enough.'
