Sky Blues Tied Up By Notts

Sky Blues Tied Up By Notts

Following Tuesday night's excellent 2-1 victory at Bristol City, Coventry City manager Steven Pressley opted to keep an unchanged side for Saturday's away game against Notts County but, backed a large and loud away support, City put in possibly their worst 45 minutes of the season to date, falling behind to a Mullins goal after 12 minutes as a fired-up County made all the running before Spencer scored a second on 33.

Adam Barton's renaissance lasted just one half as Pressley hauled him off along with Billy Daniels to be replaced by John Fleck and new signing Dylan McGeouch at half-time.

The Sky Blues could not impose any of their normal pressure on the game, however, and Sheehan sealed the points for County with a penalty on 86 minutes to complete a disappointing day for the visitors who turned in perhaps their poorest display under Pressley's management.

The City boss said afterwards: "It isn't often I say this about my own team but they looked hungrier than us.

"I always talk about the intensity of our game and today, especially in the first half, it wasn't good enough. You can plan the game as much as possible, do all the work and research but on the day, it requires a performance from the side and it wasn't there.

"I expect more from the players and I'm sure the players expect a lot more from themselves."
