Coventry City manager Steven Pressley made no apologies for what he called an 'ugly' win at Crewe Alexandra on Saturday afternoon and the stats back up his claim with the Sky Blues racking up seven yellow cards to the opposition's none, making the majority of fouls and conceding a host of corners.
A more pragmatic approach, typified by an early booking for new signing David Prutton, secured a vital three points to add another important win against Stevenage and all but secure League One safety.
Pressley said afterwards that his aim was to make City more secure defensively while aiming to exploit the attacking threat of Callum Wilson and the striker responded in style to move past twenty league goals for the season.
The Sky Blues now take on Bradford City on Tuesday night at Sixfields and, although the atmosphere and situation is set to be far different from the 3-3 cracker in front of the TV cameras at Valley Parade, both sides will be relatively happy with their current mid-table berths.
Bradford recovered from defeats against Shrewsbury and Walsall to win at promotion-chasing Leyton Orient and Saturday and manager Phil Parkinson was a satisfied man afterwards.
'We showed the determination that I was looking for after our last two performances had disappointed me and I was very proud of the team.'
Update Wilson and Dan Seaborne are rated as doubtful for the Bradford game while Pressley has been reiterating his hope that City can keep hold of their prize asset.
