Whoever got the first goal would go on to win a game like that, if Jones scored his chance the team would have relaxed into half-time. Needless to say Coventry were the better team, Macca kept us in it with two decent saves. Very unlucky with the incredibly soft goal, with the second I think Dixon slammed into Macca preventing a save. Overall I think Coventry were nothing special really since it took a mistake from Clarke-Macca's mis-communication that settled their side. 3pts from these two games is alright though and considering Clements, Osborne, Asante and McAllister were out injured.    

I want to see an attacking team against Stevenage with Dembele playing in the middle with no hoofballs to him out wide. Or perhaps two strikers? That dembele and Jones can play off from? This team has depth that Slade needs time to fully unlock, especially with DJ and JJ ready to make their marks.

300 mile round trip for that garbage hoofball, only positives from today Dembele, Rose, 2 centre halfs and I admit I cheered and clapped when Mr Nothing got himself sent off. Oh forgot Steels as good as ever and I finally beat Son Of at crazy golf after 4 defeats on the trot

In all honesty I can't blame them.

Today showed me the importance of being positive.

This is only my opinion but I personally felt that the midfield were far too deep today and this meant our Cardwell was isolated upfront. Not only that but it meant Coventry could control the game from midfield, yes at times especially in the first half; we had a good shape but we never won any second balls or pressured any kind of situation.

I was quite happy with the first 20 minutes and thought Jones should have put us 1-0 up but after that I didn't feel like we would score. There was not much build up play, I understand playing on the counter but we didn't have the space to exploit or the good possession to attack quickly. I also felt Rose was out of position quite a few times when we lost possession of the ball and they were able to pick the balls up in areas that he would usually cover.

Another main point for me from today is that Sam Jones is absolutely wasted on the wing, he is powerful, quite clever and not scared to have a go at goal. For me he must play behind the striker or as a striker, at least in a more central role.

Felt sorry for Dixon, their young lad gave him a torrid time.

It is early days, once we get settled I think we could still challenge for PO.

Was a bit more akin to what I expected at the start of the season than last week. Well organised and will still be hard to beat in most games but very little flair or goal threat other than Dembele.

There wasn't anything in it first half but they grew into it and were taking control before that goal. The referee was garbage all day and that was just the icing on the cake. Never looked like getting back into the game after that.

Expect Coventry to be up there though

We were beaten by a side that are just far better than us, it's that simple. They should have won by more IMO.

It's fine, we've had a tough start and got 3 points from two matches against relegated teams. We go again.
