Coventry City manager Andy Thorn paid credit to his players despite losing 2-1 to West Ham United this afternoon.
Speaking to the Press Association, Thorn said: "I thought we acquitted ourselves really well, played some really good stuff. I thought everybody was a credit.
"The first goal we felt was a foul on Keogh but we didn't get much all afternoon so that I didn't expect to get that. The second goal we should deal with but it came from a ricochet and that's our luck at the moment.
"When you are bringing Carlton Cole and Piquionne off the bench, it gives you a good armoury but I can't fault my players because I thought we stuck to our principles, mixed it up and played some good stuff but it wasn't to be.
"I am sure the neutral would say we deserved something from the game. People who aren't here will see another defeat but we are trying to play the right way and we have to keep going and the big man upstairs has got to give me an ace some time soon."
