Last updated : 01 August 2012 By Covsupport News Service.

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn felt his side have a lot of work to do in all departments after Tuesday night's 4-1 defeat at Wrexham.

Speaking to the CT's Alan Poole after the game, Thorn said: "It's better we go through this now than when the season starts for real.

"You don't really learn too much when you are beating teams 8-0 and 5-0 but Wrexham are a battle hardened side; we knew they would give us a real test which is why I wanted to play them and it's proved we have got a hell of a lot of work to do in all departments.

"We can't afford to defend like that and expect to come away with a result from any game. 

"I know it's a new back four but it's stll difficult to expain because that was nothing like I see in training every day.

"We've got to get it right first and foremost so we have got two weeks of really hard graft ahead of us."
