Super Sky Blues Take The Points

Super Sky Blues Take The Points

Coventry City earned an excellent three points at Bristol City on Tuesday night, the Sky Blues getting off to a flier thanks to Franck Moussa and Andy Webster and then surviving some sustained pressure from the hosts which yielded only a consolation goal from Burns.

Adam Barton and Nathan Delfouneso started the game in place of John Fleck and George Thomas respectively as Steven Pressley made two changes from the defeat at Leyton Orient a week ago.

Fleck, Jordan Clarke and new signing Mark Marshall all entered the fray as substitutes to freshen up a City side that put in another huge effort in keeping with their season to date.

A nervous period of stoppage time negotiated, the Sky Blues move on to 37 points and are once again closer to the play-offs than the relegation zone in League One despite their 10-point penalty.

Match Reaction: Steven Pressley said after the game: "Playing into a strong wind and horrific rain on a pitch that wasn't ideal despite a wonderful effort by the Bristol groundstaff, we got a terrific result that tells you all you need to know about my players' character."

The much-maligned Barton was praised for his display as he got his City career back on track while debutant Delfouneso did exactly the job his manager had in mind for him.

"I thought he was excellent tonight. Because of the way he stretches the game it allowed Franck a lot of space to play in the first half."
