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

Below-Par City Beaten By Bees

Coventry City turned in comfortably their poorest display of the season to date when succumbing easily to Brentford at Sixfields on Sunday.

Aside the opening 10 minutes of the game, the Sky Blues were no match for a strong, well-organised Bees side who worked hard to ensure City did not have the opportunity to get their full-backs forward and largely shackled front pair Leon Clarke and Callum Wilson.

It took a mistake from Cyrus Christie to allow Brenford their opening goal but after the break it was only some fine saves from Joe Murphy that kept the score down.

The home side badly missed their captain Carl Baker with Adam Barton failing to make anything of a rare first-team start.

Steven Pressley introduced Mathieu Manset at half-time in place of Barton but had few other options at his disposal to try and change the game.

The City boss had no complaints after the final whistle, saying: "In the end we went down 2-0 and on reflection Brentford deserved that but the one thing that disappointed me was the way we lost our spirit.

"That's not the type of performance I want. In football you are going to lose games and there is a manner to lose them and today we looked like we just accepted that."
