Need More Points From Our Home Games - Thorn

Last updated : 12 October 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City Manager Andy Thorn feels that the Sky Blues need to take more points from their home matches. 

The Sky Blues failed to take maximum points from their last two home matches against Reading and Blackpool and Thorn told Sky Blue Player: "We are looking forward to Saturday. There is an atmosphere about the place and we have made the Ricoh a bit of a fortress recently with just the one defeat in nine games. 

"We should have got a lot more points from home games in this spell though, and we will be looking to build on that. I know Forest have also had a difficult start but we are just focusing on ourselves as we want to get back to where we deserve to be. 

"We know and they (the players) know how well we can do. We sat down and had a chat and aired a few home truths about where we expect to be. You take the Palace, Blackpool and Reading results and you put them into the equation, we'd be sat in the play-offs. 

"Its important we stay focused on what we're doing and we will be alright. We're more frustrated because we know how well we can do and we have let our standards slip a bit, but that is in the past. It's all forgotten and now we will look ahead to Saturday's game."
