Thorn To Keep Same Approach

Last updated : 13 January 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that City will approach tomorrow’s trip to Derby County the same way they have done for the last three matches. 

City beat Bristol City and Brighton before going down to West Ham United at Upton Park in a game where City matched the side who have now gone top all the way. 

Speaking to the Sky Blue Player, Thorn said: "With our two wins from the last three league games, we are desperate to build on that and get that first away win. 

"We feel we are good enough to get a result against Derby so we are looking forward to the game and keeping focused on getting the points. 

"We need to take our chances and take advantage of how much possession we have usually. Derby are bang in form at the moment and are a good side who will cause us problems. 

"We had periods where we were on top against West Ham and we will probably have the same against Derby, but we need to make those periods count by scoring goals. 

"We are going to try and keep the approach the same but we may have to change and attack it slightly differently, depending on personnel. 

"I have got a few missing at the moment and we will just have to wait and see if we can get a few back. We will know sooner to kick-off what we can do. 

"Nothing will change commitment wise though as that has stayed the same all season. The way we are training and the attitude has been great. There is still a buzz around the place. 

“If there wasn't, I would be worried, but there is so they have continued to work hard and we will prepare for it the way we think best to get something from the game. 

"(Clive) Platt is back training so he has got a chance for the match and Roy (O'Donovan) and Shaun Jeffers will be in there as well so we will see how we go."
