Andy Thorn, who celebrated his 45th birthday last Saturday with a rare day off, is determined to turn Coventry City's season around and is confident that it will begin on Saturday when his side takes on second placed West Ham at The Ricoh.

Coventry City face a tough next few games, first West Ham, then fourth placed Cardiff on Tuesday, then Brighton, not the teams that a team in joint bottom place would ideally want to face.

Thorn has admitted he is changing tactics and dropping his previously favoured diamond formation, but has said he will still play a pass and move style of play and not revert to the much despised long ball game.

A confident Thorn said to the CT, “It will come, there’s no question about that. I am so committed to it and will give it everything to make it work and I will make it work, definitely! 

“The players are so disappointed at the moment and I feel I am saying the same things all the time, that we are so close. But the fact is we are and all the boys know that.

“All of us are so committed to making it work and it will come. I love the games and can’t get enough of them.

"I am really looking forward to the big games coming up and I’m looking forward to mixing it up a little bit and freshening things up but I stress we will still be playing football.

“Sometimes you can freshen things up with new players and sometimes you can do it by changing what you are doing. My principles won’t change but my system will slightly and I’m looking forward to seeing how it works in training this week.”
