The Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that he is satisfied with the outcome of the first two matches against Yeovil town and Sheffield United. Coventry City managed to get a draw from both the matches. Even though this was not the planned start, Andy Thorn has said that considering the quality of the opposition, this is more than good enough. Coventry City still remains as one of the favourites to get promotion from the division into the Championship. Sheffield United managed to score the first goal in the opening encounter, but Coventry City responded brilliantly with a late equaliser through Stephen Elliott.
The 1-1 draw meant that Coventry City achieved the same result as in the opening day of the season, in which they faced against Yeovil town. Despite dropping two points in the first two matches of the season, Andy Thorn has said that he is pleased with the outcome because he has seen his players give their all in the efforts to get the club back to the Championship. Coventry will be facing the likes of Birmingham city and Crewe Alexandra in the next few matches. These are going to be extremely important and they can determine the prospect of Coventry City challenging for promotion according to the manager.
“The lads were disappointed that we didn’t get the win, and that’s the right attitude. Although we probably didn’t warrant it on our first-half performance we did on the second so there were loads of positives to take out of the game. We’ve laid down a statement that we’re going to give it a go this season – we’ve made a decent start but now we’re hungry to go on a run and get a few victories under our belts,” said Andy Thorn ahead of the match with Bury.
