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

A Split Second Of Joy For City Fans

Coventry City supporters experienced a rare high of emotion as their side fought back from two goals down at Crawley on Saturday afternoon but were left to rue a late winner from the home side to cap undoubtedly the worst week in the club's history.

Callum Wilson and Franck Moussa had sparked joy among the 800+ travelling fans, most of whom made their feelings about recent events loud and clear, before Crawley sealed all three points.

'We weren't ourselves in the first half and we effectively gifted them a two-goal start,' said Steven Pressley after the game.

'But we were tremendous after the interval and I could only see one side winning it once we equalised.'

Opposition boss Richie Barker, speaking about the protests from visiting fans, said: "If you have a real passion for your football club then it's totally understandable and the people who usually suffer are the fans and I sympathised with that."

10 points behind the rest and with reports over the weekend that his three key players, Murphy, Baker and Leon Clarke, are to be sold, Steven Pressley's task gets harder with every passing day.
