Enjoying Coventry - 11/03/2004
The West Brom game excepted, itís been three wins and three clean sheets since I joined Coventry and itís fair to day that Iím enjoying the move. I want first team football and now Iím getting it. I knew a few of lads here before I joined, so thatís helped me settle. I staying at a hotel close to the M6 and spending a few hours on the motorway as Iím back home quite often. No complaints though. Whether my monthís loan is extended for another month or perhaps until the end of the season, I really donít know. But Coventry are a decent team with a strong Premiership history and with a few more decent results, we could be in the play-offís. Beating Wimbledon and Derby Ė two of the divisions struggling teams was to be expected, but they still had to be beaten!!
Then came the trip to Cardiff and three more points. That good news was tarnished by the fact I was unfortunately sent off. We considered appealing, but when I sat down with the club and looked at the tape, I have to admit that part of my studs were visible and an appeal panel could have even extended the ban. Games are coming thick and fast, so the three matches Iíll miss will be over within eight days or so.
I thought we were a lot closer to West Brom that the scoreline suggests. There was nothing in the game and we gave them two goals with sloppy defending. It just goes to show that even if Coventry donít make promotion this season, the team isnít too far away. We face Burnley this weekend and with their problems, Iím quietly confident of picking up a result.
