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

City let the train take the strain!

Coventry City's 1-0 win at QPR on Saturday afternoon came after an unusual journey to the ground.

'We were told the bus was stuck in traffic so we decided to get on the tube,' said manager Micky Adams.

'We bought 23 single tickets at Hanger Lane station and our unsung hero was Jay Tabb, who knew we had to change at Hammersmith to go to Shepherd's Bush.

'I feel a bit sorry for him as well, as I did not even put him in the team.'

Adams added: 'We took a bit of stick from West Ham and Fulham fans and got to the ground at 2.20pm, went on to the pitch and won 1-0.

'Everyone talks about preparation but this proves it is a load of nonsense.'
