Thorn desperate for good injury news

Thorn desperate for good injury news

Andy Thorn is desperate to get his injured players out of the treatment room after being forced to blood another academy prospect in the 4-2 defeat by league leaders Southampton.

Admitting that his side had been 'very poor' in a first-half dominated by the Saints, Thorn felt that City's exciting comeback after the break took so much out of them that they were unable to keep up the momentum for the rest of the game.

'We will still believe in ourselves and the way we play so we just have to keep confident,' he told the official club website.

Visiting boss Nigel Adkins warned his side that the Sky Blues would come out fighting after the break and was pleased with how his table-toppers responded to the home comeback.

'At half-time we talked about concentrating from the beginning and low and behold within the first minute we gave a very spirited Coventry side an opportunity to score.

'One of our players had not marked the goalscorer, and it gives them a bit of a lift and the home crowd a bit of a lift.'
