Farndon: We Asked For Work Rate And Got It

Last updated : 16 January 2018 By CNS Sport

Coventry City U23's coach Jason Farndon has said he asked for work rate and reaction from his players and got it in a 6-1 home win over Crystal Palace.

In one of the best ever first halves that a City Reserve side has put in for many a year, the Sky Blues were 5-0 up at the break thanks to goals from Stuart Beavon, Josh Barrett (2) and Jordan Ponticelli (2).

Barrett completed his hat-trick in the 86th minute in what was a superb team performance and one that will rightly remembered by the City supporters who were there to witness the victory against Richard Shaw's side.

Speaking to Alex Lowe, Jason Farndon said: “As you can see we’ve had a few first team and senior players play in the team and I’m always a little cautious when that happens because it brings a different dynamic to the group.

But, in the last two games we’ve asked for work rate and reactions and I think we’ve got that.

“We’ve figured were not going to pass it as much as we’d like too, because you have to play to the pitches at this time of year, but we’re definitely going to win the ball back and pass it in the final third and there was some real good performances.”
