Clingan: Mistakes Must Be Cut Out

Last updated : 08 December 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City captain Sammy Clingan has said that silly mistakes must be eradicated from the Sky Blues game. 

Clingan was criticised by some of the support at Portsmouth for the standard of his passing and his constantly over-hit set plays, just a week after his attempted back pass cost City a goal in the 2-1 defeat at Brighton.

Speaking to Sky Blue Player at the club’s weekly press conference, Clingan said: "It was disappointing against Portsmouth obviously and after the game we were talking about our mistakes and schoolboy errors.

"We need to stop and stop them now and get on with winning games because we know once we cut out the mistakes will be at the other end of the table.

"When you look at our stats and the way we've been playing it's good reading but it's the mistakes that are costing us despite the good work we've been doing.

"You look at our training sessions and the way we are preparing we are not a team that is thinking about relegation although the table says it is staring us in the face.

"None of the lads want that and we are all doing our best to make sure we start turning these performances into points.

"We just want that win so we can kick on and go on a run because we want to do well for each other, the manager and the fans.

"We need to cut these mistakes out because if we do that I know we will be finishing the season at the other end of the table."
