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

Thorn: Not a four-gone conclusion yet

Coventry City boss Andy Thorn issued a rallying cry after the hugely disappointing 3-1 defeat by Bristol City left his side four points behind their opponents with four games left to play.

Opposite number Derek McInnes reaped the benefit of being able to make six changes to his starting line-up from Saturday's win at Nottingham Forest as the Robins overpowered the Sky Blues after the break to overturn a one-goal deficit and put themselves in the driving seat for another season of Championship football.

'I thought we looked very leggy in the second half,' said Thorn.

'We have some injuries and some knocks and numbers told on us in the end. Bristol looked fresher than we did.

'But we have been on a good run prior to this game and we will pick the players up and go again.

'We have enough games left to get ourselves out of trouble and Bristol probably have a tougher run-in, so it isn't over yet.'

That run-in begins at the weekend when City go to Burnley and Bristol host Birmingham City. Millwall, the only other side realistically in the dogfight, travel to Portsmouth on Tuesday night.
