Farndon - A Good Victory

Coventry City U23's Coach Jason Farndon said that it was a good victory as his side beat PDL League Two leader Ipswich Town at the Ricoh Arena 1-0 thanks to a David Bremang goal.

City had the better of the first half and took the lead finally in the 34th minute but allowed the visitors more of the play in the second half, not that it mattered as Corey Addai was rarely tested and the Sky Blues took a deserved win.

Jason Farndon told the Coventry Telegraph about the victory: “I thought we were excellent in the first half and very similar to when we played Cardiff last week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We are not overly pleased with our in possession work in the second half but I said at half time that you have to find a way to win.

"And it’s mine and Luke Tisdale’s job to prepare the boys to be not just pretty footballers but also to find different ways of winning and being a solid and dogged team, so that probably sums up the second half.

“But we’re delighted with the first half when we created a lot a chances. We have spoken about being ruthless because we weren’t quite that today but it was a good goal by Dave Bremang.

“It was a new group of players at the start of the season that wasn’t quite clicking but now I think we are always going to get chances.

“David is a big, powerful boy who is learning the game and he gives you a chance. 

“Jak Hickman sent the ball in for the goal and he’s excellent at crossing the ball in on the run, so he’s a really good attacking full-back.

“I have said it before, I think Ipswich are the best team in the league.

“When we played them earlier on in the season we barely had a kick of the ball and they were excellent. And you could see from their second half performance what they are like.

“I watched their Under-18s against ours the other week and they were exactly the same – the best academy that I have seen at this level this season, so it was always going to be a tough game.

“They have got a bit more experience than us so it’s a good victory.”
