Sloppy Sky Blues pay the price

Sloppy Sky Blues pay the price

Coventry City became the 28th successive team to fail to win in the league at the City Ground as they were beaten 2-1 by Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night, despite having taken the lead during an entertaining opening 45 minutes.

The Sky Blues were denied a decent penalty shout when on top early in the second-half and also missed some good chances, both at 1-1 and when chasing the game late on as Marlon King`s struggles in front of goal continued.

Aidy Boothroyd`s side again showed that they will provide more than a match for anyone in the Championship but the manager will be left to rue some slack defending, especially for Forest`s second goal as the Sky Blues lost a second game on the spin.

I wouldn't say the defending was sloppy, Forest's first was a great strike and the second resulted from a pacy inswinging freekick that Earnshaw missed..leaving Westwood flat footed..Camp pulled off some good saves in the 2nd half, but Forest were guilty of wasted chances in the first 30 minutes!
