We Battered Them - Westley

Preston North End boss Graham Westley felt that his side battered Coventry during the 1-1 draw at the Ricoh Arena this afternoon.

Speaking to the Press Association, Westley said; "We battered them, let's be honest about it.

"I think there was one team out there playing to win and 54% possession in our favour and 12 attempts to six in our favour tells you that. We did a lot to try and win the football match and didn't quite get what we deserved.

"The team made the decision that in the second half they were going to do that little bit extra that it takes to win and we played on the front foot with intensity in our attacking and intensity in our defending.

"What was important was the players' attitude to the game. Whatever you do tactically, it is the way the players go about implementing the gameplan that makes the difference and they absolutely made their mind up at half-time that they were going to win that second half. I just wish they had won it by two, not one."
