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

Point pleases Sky Blues boss

Coventry City manager Iain Dowie once again praised his side after their 1-1 draw at Norwich City on Saturday.

A late Canaries equaliser denied the Sky Blues to make it two wins out of two under the new boss but Dowie was delighted nonetheless.

He said: 'We had a nervous last 10 minutes and we didn't start too well but in between times I thought we controlled the game against a good Norwich side.

'I don't think anyone could claim we weren't well worth our lead and unfortunately a little misunderstanding between two of our players has let them in to score an equaliser.

'After that there was a resilience about the team that I liked. They stuck to their task and were determined not to go under.

'They were a little bit leggy at the end, which is probably my fault because I've worked them very hard this week. But they showed great character to hang in there.

'Overall this had been a very good week. It was a massive win against Southampton in midweek and this was another good result. I'll certainly settle for four points out of six.

'I've already seen enough to realise that there are some blocks I can build on here although obviously we are still a long way away from where we want to be.'

4 points from 6 good start keep it going and it will be a good basic for things to come

yes well done.I watched Southend at your place recently and you certainly did look out of sorts.It seems like things are finally fitting in to place.

Got to allow for new manager syndrome, wears off after 6 weeks, I suspect you will do well till the end of the season with the new manager and those players whos contract is due for renewal playing out of their skins. Just got to hope the board back the manager.

If you think about it the same players was playing when Heath took over and the new manager syndrome did not take place, It is more than that Dowie is getting more out of the players

Exactly ccfcks. Try telling West Ham fans about new manager syndrome! Dowie has already squeezed a bit more out of what is a decent Championship squad.
CET Stander
I think the is alot more to come, Dowie to going to be a great Coventry Manager
