Steve: "Didn't Get What We Deserved."

29 March 2014

Steve gives us his reaction after Sky Blues grab all three points

Alex boss Steve Davis praised his side's efforts against Coventry City and was understandably disappointed not to have got anything from such an encouraging performance at Gresty Road. Two goals from Callum Wilson proved to be the difference on the day, with his second goal coming against the run of play with nine minutes remaining on the clock.

Following the 2-1 home defeat to the Sky Blues, Steve Davis told "I  thought we deserved something from the performance. A draw or even a win for our effort. I cannot fault them for their effort today, I thought they were excellent and that real determination was there from the off. We certainly had a big push in the second half and didn't get anything to drop for us. We had a few chances and a few goal mouth scrambles but where their first goal came back off their post and landed at the feet of Wilson, they didn't quite drop for us.

"They were competitive and I lost count of how many cards they had, but it was the same against Notts County on Tuesday night. We knew what was coming when they set up 5-4-1 but when you have a striker of the calibre of Wilson then they can do that. He is one of the best strikers in the league and he has won the game for them today with his finishing. They came to stop us and although we had a few chances and kept their goalkeeper busier than ours they have won the game.

"That is football and it can happen. We were awful against Oldham and got a point with a last minute equaliser and then we were much better today and got nothing for our efforts. It is difficult to take but that can happen and the players are going through it, some of them for the first time when you have good and bad days and it seems as though everything is against you.

"The effort and determination was there from all of them and the fans appreciated the performance. They got behind them and encouraged them and it is disappointing that we couldn't quite that result for them, but we will keep on fighting."
