Adrian Heath has spoke of his happiness at a point as Coventry battled back from two goals down against Ipswich.
“It is a good result for us because we need ed to stop the rot and, ironically, the way it panned out - coming from two goals down - has been a plus for us,”
“So we have shown a lot of character and we will take a lot of positives from that. Had we been 2-0 up and come away with a point we would probably have been gutted, but the lads were very pleased in the dressing room and quite rightly so.
“We know we haven’t played as well as we know we can over the last few weeks and when you look at the fixtures away to Ipswich and Leicester, you know you are in for two very difficult games, so the result is a big positive for us and the players can move on from here now.
“Obviously we were very disappointed with the two Ipswich goals but I thought we showed a lot of character to come back.
“We conceded two set pieces, which is frustrating because we work on those in training and we need to eradicate those because we have conceded far too many soft goals this season.
“The game could easily have fallen away from there but they hung on in there and we thought the next goal was going to be crucial, and fortunately we got it and it gave us a little bit of a lifeline.
“And in the second half I thought we looked the most likely on the break to perhaps score a third goal. And at a time when confidence has been desperately low at the club following the back-to-back defeats, Heath believes it is coming back.
“The only thing that restores confidence is winning games of football, or at least playing well, and for one or two individuals I think that performance was very good,” he added. “I think Stephen Hughes looked more like his old self and hopefully he will be better for that outing.
“I thought Gary McSheffrey also did well up front. He keeps telling everyone that’s where he wants to play so he has done well to get his goal and he will certainly benefit from that game as well.”
He added: “I think it has been widely reported that Micky has been very disappointed with one or two individuals. There have been one or two meetings over the last couple of days and I think last night will go a long way to restoring a bit of confidence, and hopefully they can go to Leicester on Sunday with a bit of renewed spirit.”
