Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that the time for excuses is in the past.
Speaking to the CT's Andy Turner, Thorn said: "I don't want us to be saying we're too young or this or that any more
"I am not having a go at the players because I have spoken to them all individually and they've all put a shift in and that sort of stuff but I have said to them not to use this as an excuse any more.
"I've asked them to have a think about the last season and where they could have done better, and in fairness they have had a right go.
"But the season has gone now and I don't ever want to have to talk about kids and not having any money and stuff.
"We have to leave all that in the past."
