Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that he is not disappointed following a late equaliser conceded in the match against Sheffield United. Sheffield United are one of the big favourites to get promotion from the League One. They were taking on Coventry City during the weekend and were the favourites to win the match, despite it being away from home. However, Coventry City put in a good shift throughout the match and were extremely organised in defence. They also managed to score the crucial first goal through Stephen Elliott. However, Nick Blackman managed to score for Sheffield United with only 6 min of normal time remaining.
It would have given Coventry City their first win of the season after they could only manage a 1-1 draw in the first match of the season against Yeovil town. Speaking after the match, the Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that he is not disappointed at the way Sheffield United equalised in the match, but with the officials who missed some crucial decisions in the match. Coventry will be facing the likes of Birmingham city in the next few matches and a victory is extremely crucial for Andy Thorn at this stage.
“That was a better result than our draw at Yeovil on Saturday. They are a good side but we held our own in a cracking game. I’ve watched it on video and it was probably a foot over the line. The guy who cleared it was in the back of the net but it’s one of those things so we won’t make too much of it. Both teams tried to play and although we were on the back foot for a lot of the first half I thought we passed the ball really well after the break,” said Andy Thorn.
