TEAM TALK v COVENTRY, 5/3/14

5 March 2014

Boss looking for a response...

I WILL be looking for a response from my players this evening as we head to Sixfields Stadium to take on Coventry City.

I have total belief in this group of players and, importantly, they have belief in themselves. Saturday's set-back at Preston was disappointing; we responded well to going a goal down early on and, whilst our response to their second goal wasn't as good, we put them under pressure for the final 30 minutes or so and didn't deserve to lose.

We'll come back stronger. We've been on good runs before and there is no reason why we can't launch another, starting this evening.

If we can gain some momentum, it will stand us in good stead for the challenges that lie ahead. There are big games coming up, but it is essential that we don't look too far ahead and take it one game at a time.

Coventry have got some good players in their side and as such we will be wary of the threats that they possess. Our preparation has been good and the players are raring to get out there and attempt to get back into winning ways.

I would like to thank our supporters for the backing that they gave us at Deepdale. We look forward to more of the same support this evening and for the rest of the season.
