Platt is A Leader - Thorn

Last updated : 14 November 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that Clive Platt offers leadership qualities on the pitch.

Speaking about the squad's most senior player to the CT's Andy Turner, Thorn said: “Platty is a physical presence. 

“He was unlucky because he came on and did really well against Blackpool but we have to watch how many games he plays in a week.
“He’ll have a nice rest now but he’s certainly put his name down for the position. Depending on how things work out we’ll go from there.

"But I was chuffed to bits with him against Southampton because he’s a good lad and good in the dressing room.

“He’s got a bit of experience which rubs off and I was pleased with his contribution.

"You need leaders out on the pitch pushing and pulling and it would be nice get that out on the pitch because I am hoarse by the end of the game.”
