Coventry City boss Tony Mowbray keen to address errors

10 March 2015

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray says he wants to address recent mistakes from his side against Bradford City on Tuesday.

City lost 3-2 to Port Vale at the weekend to fall to their second consecutive defeat, a result that leaves them just a point outside the Sky Bet League 1 drop zone.

Mowbray is fully aware that the Sky Blues must secure wins to remain in the division, and admits he will be looking to his experienced players to help guide them to safety.

"I didn't feel threatened by Port Vale, but we lost three goals, one from a set play and that needs to be addressed," he said.

"We need to find a way of giving confidence to the team. We were all left bitterly frustrated by Saturday.

"Conceding goals and negative results will inevitably knock confidence. It can be boosted quickly though with a win. Younger players take a bit more time to readjust after a defeat than older players who have seen it and done it.

"I will look to the older lads and get them to just steer the younger ones through this.

"Normally I like to play an expansive game but we are where we are and we have a pitch that is difficult to play on. We need to win football matches, keep clean sheets. If we have to change our style of play than that is something we will look at."

Coventry take on a Bradford side fresh from their FA Cup draw with Reading on Saturday, and who currently sit 10th in the table, two points off the Play-Off places.
