'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Game a 'mockery' says Sky Blues boss

Chris Coleman will look to move on quickly from Saturday's 2-1 defeat for Coventry City at the hands of Watford, believing that the game will have taught him little about his side.

The Vicarage Road pitch passed a late inspection after heavy rain but Coleman commented: 'For both teams it is a mockery really because anything can happen and unfortunately we came out with nothing.

'I think that in the end it was a little bit dangerous. Anything can happen in conditions like that.

'It is not a complaint because we wanted to play the game but I would not want to play in another game like that this season.

'There was not really any football being played by both teams because really it was impossible and we said at half-time the team that makes the least mistakes in their own penalty area is going to come out on top and we ended up giving away a penalty.'

Brendan Rodgers' Watford made it two wins in a week for their new manager, who said afterwards: 'I demanded six points and that is what we got so I am really pleased.

'In the first half I thought we were outstanding.

'In the opening 20 minutes some of our passing and movement was really good.'
