Coventry City manager Andy Thorn felt that his side acquitted themselves well during the 2-0 defeat at Reading this afternoon.
Speaking to Sky Blue Player, Thorn said: "Early on I thought we were on top to be fair and their first goal, I think the boy himself will admit it was a cross. We were disappointed with the second though because we shouldn't get blocked like that at corners.
"Second half though we came back and their 'keeper has pulled off some unbelievable saves to be fair to him. I think I counted five fantastic saves he's made.
"The thing is the way we played second half I thought that if one of them had gone in it could have completely changed the game. Had Federici not been on such form we could've come away with something.
"But in all I thought the lads acquitted themselves well and showed good character to come out for the second half and play the way they played. It gives us hope because nobody gave in and if wecan just cut out silly little errors then I know we can give ourselves something to build on."
