Coleman pleased as City edge upwards

Chris Coleman believes Tuesday night's win over Premier League hopefuls Nottingham Forest shows the slow but steady progress being made by his side.

Freddy Eastwood's close-range goal kept the Sky Blues firmly in the middle of the Championship table and capped a run of decent results against teams in the top-half.

'If you look at our last few games we could not have had a much tougher run yet we have taken points away from them so credit to the lads, they have been tremendous,' said Coleman, speaking to the official club website after an exciting game at the Ricoh Arena.

City will now look to reach the 40-point mark against a Queens Park Rangers side on Saturday that look there for the taking following their plummet down the league amidst off-field turmoil.

Opposing boss Billy Davies, who admitted his side failed to really test Kieren Westwood in the home goal, urged his players to enjoy their league position and not let the promotion pressure get to them.

'They should be proud of where we are,' said the Scot.

'They've given themselves a great chance and there will be no disappointments.'
