Coventry Paper Review

16 December 2013

See how the press reported our draw

Coventry Telegraph


It’s just as well City have a more than half decent side at the moment. Imagine what the numbers would be like if Steven Pressley’s boys were losing every week.


Disappointingly, there was a feeling of defeat about this result which saw Alexandra’s players get on the bus delighted with a point.


For Coventry, it was a clear case of two dropped as individual errors were punished by a side content to sit and soak up the pressure and then catch their opponents on the counter attack.


The game plan worked a treat on a day when the Sky Blues put into practice their diligent work on the training field last week which was all about retaining possession for longer, being patient and picking the right moment to penetrate weakness.


Crewe Chronicle

CREWE Alex snatched a point at Coventry City after scoring their first equaliser of the season on Saturday.


Tom Hitchcock gave them a first-half lead but strikes from Franck Moussa and Callum Wilson left them trailing at City's temporary home of Sixfield's in Northampton.


But just as it looked like the former Premier League side would run away with it Hitchcock teed up Chuks Aneke who got Crewe back on terms.


Then a brave defensive effort got them over the line, and the Alex are now eight unbeaten in the league against Coventry.


The Sun


Callum Wilson’s pace has been turning defenders all season –but a screw in his foot could slow him down. Wilson, 21, bagged his 13th league goal of the season from the spot after being felled by Crewe keeper Ben Garratt.


That ended a cold streak of three games without a goal and it put Coventry in front after Franck Moussa cancelled out Tom Hitchcock’s opener for Crewe – only for Chuks Aneke to rescue a point for the visitors.


Wilson was banned last week and almost missed this. He said: “Before the game it was touch and go. It is the screw that I had put in my foot last year.


“It has to come out at some point. I want to do it at the end of the season but it plays up with the hard ground and cold.”
