Tony Mowbray targets back-to-back wins for Coventry City

13 April 2015

Coventry City gave their survival hopes a lift by beating relegation-threatened Colchester United 1-0 at the Ricoh Arena but boss Tony Mowbray insists there will be no let-up.

The decisive goal came in the 37th minute when Sky Blues skipper Jim O'Brien steered home from inside the box after a smart cut-back from left-back Chris Stokes, giving Mowbray his first home victory as boss.

The manager said: "It obviously got a bit nervy with only one goal in it and we had lots of chances to give ourselves some breathing space, but that's football.

"There's lot and lots we have to improve on still. We had a great work ethic and a great desire to do well for the club, but at times we have to have more control of the football.

"It's three points, it doesn't matter how it comes about - we have to be happy to take that.

"It is still very tight down at the bottom half of the table - teams are picking up points so we have to keep going.

"If we win on Tuesday it will hopefully give us a bit more breathing space.

"The games start running out after that, so Tuesday night against Oldham becomes a massive game for us and one we are looking forward to."
