Coventry City boss was left a bit bemused by his side's FA Cup third round win over Crystal Palace on Saturday claiming his team were too complacent.

He said to the CT: "It was almost too comfortable. We allowed complacency to creep in, even though we warned about that at half time because we knew that Palace would create a chance at some stage."

"We totally took our foot off the pedal so we'll have to discuss that in training, and we did get a little bit jittery in the final 10 minutes which you'd expect after the results we've had of late, but after the run we've been having it was very important to get a win and it's a nice feeling because for an hour we played some great stuff with some good shots and good crosses."
