PHIL PARKINSON POST COVENTRY CITY


Phil Parkinson was disappointed with the result against Coventry on Sunday afternoon. He was also concerned that we conceded so early in the match, for the second game running, after Matt Godden’s strike on 95 seconds ultimately gave the Sky Blues the spoils. Parkinson said: “It was frustrating to give away another early goal. It was just a lack of communication in and around our box, not quite getting our covering positions right, and we were punished for it. Alim [Ozturk] and Tom [Flanagan] have both gone for the ball, and perhaps Denver [Hume] could have got around a bit quicker. Those margins are so important. It’s very annoying after conceding early against Fleetwood on Tuesday night. Coventry are a good team and we knew it was always going to be a tight game with very little in it, but when you give away a goal like that it gives the other team a huge lift.”


He added: “Obviously we’ll look at it. It’s frustrating when it happens in back-to-back games. We knew that Fleetwood are the kind of team that would sit back and try to stifle the game - they do that whatever the score is, that’s how they play, so scoring so early was the perfect scenario for them. And then to concede early again today - we will sit down with the lads and take a look at it and talk about those goals.”


The gaffer also discussed Max Power’s disallowed goal, which would have earned us a point. “It looks like it was the right decision, although I’m not sure how they [the officials] came to it,” said Parkinson. “Max has had a shot and it looks like it has hit Luke on the heel and it has deflected it past the keeper, and he [O’Nien] was in an offside position so we can’t complain about the call.”
