We were passing the ball better and moving forward pretty well and having good opportunities in good areas but, again, taking the wrong decisions and options.”We know what we have got and know what we have got in terms of the quality of the players, and generally they are good enough. But tonight the second half was less than good and defensively we were very poor.”Looking at the goals, scored in the 53rd, 71st and 73rd minutes, he said: “Jordan Willis came out in the second half and looked injured and his knee was obviously sore, to the point where he had to come off. And as he’s doing that we concede the first goal. We were out of position and there wasn’t a great deal of movement in terms of trying to stop that one.Coventry City Jonson Clarke Harris and Fleetwood Town Dean Marney”Jordy Hiwula has not moved his body and there is no pressure on the ball and they get the ball out to Marney who has blasted one into the net.”The second one is the same, it’s poor, poor defensively. What you don’t do is give the jerseys away, you don’t sell the jerseys when you are a goal down. You try to stay in it and get back i n the game and try to build the pressure again.”But we didn’t do that and came out of the slot, one ball through broke us down and we didn’t defend it right so within two moments we were two goals down and then they added a third.”allCoventry City FCSunderland boss backs radical new promotion plan and what it could mean for Coventry CityThe Sky Blues are five points clear at the top of the League One table, while the Black Cats are just outside the play off zonePeterborough United chairman uses Coventry City to vent anger over EFL decisionCoventry City FCThe Posh chief has vowed to continue to fight for his side’s right to challenge for promotion in League One after the EFL provide their preferred resolution if the fixtures don’t go aheadConfirmed: Where Coventry City, Sunderland Portsmouth will finish if League One season cancelledCoventry City FCCoventry City news: Oxford United, Wycombe Wanderers, Portsmouth and Ipswich Town are all battling for promotion but it may be taken out of their hands if the season is cancelledPort Vale’s class has made League One promotion row look all the more foolishCoventry City FCVale were just a point behind the play off pack in the fourth division and are enjoying a lengthy unbeaten run with it all to play for.Former Coventry City and Arsenal defender ill in hospitalCoventry City FCSansom’s family have confirmed the 86 capped full back is receiving careCoventry City FCSunderland boss backs radical new promotion plan and what it could mean for Coventry CityThe Sky Blues are five points clear at the top of the League One table, while the Black Cats are just outside the play off zonePeterborough United chairman uses Coventry City to vent anger over EFL decisionCoventry City FCThe Posh chief has vowed to continue to fight for his side’s right to challenge for promotion in League One after the EFL provide their preferred resolution if the fixtures don’t go aheadOne moment from Coventry City’s FA Cup final sticks in Micky Gynn’s mindCoventry City FCThe midfield player helped the Sky Blues to beat Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley in 1987Former Coventry City and Arsenal defender ill in hospitalCoventry City FCSansom’s family have confirmed the 86 capped full back is receiving careConfirmed: Where Coventry City, Sunderland Portsmouth will finish if League One season cancelledCoventry City FCCoventry City news: Oxford United, Wycombe Wanderers, Portsmouth and Ipswich Town are all battling for promotion but it may be taken out of their hands if the season is cancelled
