Inchy blast for 'sloppy' City

Inchy blast for 'sloppy' City

Caretaker Coventry City manager Adrian Heath was left to rue the same old story after seeing his side beaten 3-2 at Plymouth on Monday night.

'I couldn't ask any more from the players,' he said. 'It was just sloppy goals and individual errors which cost us again - as they have been doing.

'It's not always stopping the last shot but stopping the opposition from getting into those positions.

'A lot of the players out there showed the desire to win. It is dispiriting but we need to pick ourselves up.'

Plymouth manager Ian Holloway paid tribute to striker Barry Hayles, who caused the visiting defence plenty of problems.

'Barry's a born winner,' he said.

'If it's tiddlywinks, he wants to win and I think he is showing that. I don't know what I would do without him.

'Barry's finish was top drawer, class. I am delighted with the quality I have got out there on the pitch.

'It was not the best of conditions, but I thought my lads were superb.'

Some positives from the game. Mifsud's goal and Birchall's performance which gave us better balance. Got to sort out the centre of defence though.

My Thoughts - Steele looks weak on shot stopping (last night, Bristol and Palace), McNamee was sporadic - some good foraging forward, Whing committed but needs more composure, Hall poor when played out of position, Page has lost his way and seems to suffer from the lack of another experienced Centre Back beside him. Also doesn't seem top be motivating/ vocal at the moment, Doyle still promising, HUGHES!!!!! surely if Micky could'nt see he was poor then Inchy can (if not lets not waste 5 weeks testing him out!), Birchall improvement, Tabb enthusiatic but requires much more awareness of opposing players around him, Adebola useful but frustrating, John top class but not motivated or interested, Miffy looks sharp surely worth a run out from the start against Luton, Thornton the same but work on the set peices! Would have probably anticipated a defeat at Home Park on a miserable Monday regardless of our current position/ situation. 7 Days to get this group of players motivated and resurgent! PUSB!!!

I would just like to know which players was showning the desire to win, because I missed that, I am finding it hard to come to terms with the mess I keep seeing no shape no set plays and no effort. I don't know what has happen at the club but these are not the same players they were. We need someone to get them back

Plymouth un-defeated at home this year........... OK not many matches BUT with new blood in the team it was always going to be difficult for any team to come away with all three points..
