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

Bosses Acknowledge Sky Blue Army Effect

Both managers acknowledged the role played by nearly 7,000 visiting supporters at Milton Keynes on Saturday as Coventry City roared back from a goal down to beat their hosts 3-1 thanks to a superb brace of free kicks from debutant loanee Chris Maguire and a goal from his fellow new signing Chris Dagnall.

Speaking to their respective local BBC Radio stations after the game, Dons boss Karl Robinson and City manager Steven Pressley felt the momentum of the game changed as the away side attacked their army of fans.

'I'm so desperate to give these supporters success,' said Pressley, who made the big call to rest Andy Webster and not Jordan Clarke in order to hand Dan Seaborne his debut. 'I can't tell you how much I want to bring this club back to where it belongs.

'That today was quite phenomenal. The atmosphere in the stadium was terrific and I think it was big thank you from our players today.'

All three loan signings made the perfect start in their bid to convince either their respective clubs or prospective buyers of their qualities but the man who allowed Dagnall to move on from Barnsley this week, David Flitcroft, is now out of a job after their 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Birmingham saw the Tykes sink to the foot of the Football League.

A strange situation to take twice as many fans than have been at the last TWO home games but a great day for the supporters who went.

Just a thought after yesterdays great win. The following was magnificent but did anyone think for a moment that the Owner of the MK franchise gained over 100,000 from us but we cannot support our team home and away. For those fans who live under the Coventry City Council do you still pay your council tax? After all they are just as culpable in this whole sorry mess as SISU and ACL.
