Hughton Felt City Should Have Beat Coventry

Hughton Felt City Should Have Beat Coventry

City manager Chris Hughton felt Birmingham City should have walked away with the three points against Coventry after a great second half.

But things went desperately wrong when they found themselves a goal down on 70 minutes and then have to deal with the sending off of Jordon Mutch.

Gary McSheffrey gave Coventry an unlikely lead which Marlon King had to step up and level the game which City ended with ten men.

But at the end of the game, Hughton was pretty pleased with his side`s second half display, he just rued the fact that they could not find the finish to several chances they created before conceding a goal.

Hughton told reporters: "We got a lot of crosses in, probably as many as we have done for some time, and you hope you are going to get bodies on the end of them.

"They defended very well from them. We got into some really good areas, which I was pleased about, but we were just lacking that bit in the final third.

"It was a great response to come back from the goal like we did.

"And we certainly had opportunities to go and win it - Marlon at the back post and Ziggy wasn`t far away from a whipped cross."
