More from City boss
Coventry City manager Andy Thorn felt his players gave away two goals but were better in the second half of the 2-1 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion.
Speaking to Sky Blue Player, Thorn said: "We were unlucky not to take anything out of the game as the second half was good. But we never got going in the first-half, which was really disappointing and we let ourselves down in that respect.
"We gifted them two goals but in the second half, we began to play the way we know how to play and by the end of the game, we were well on top.
"It just didn't seem to drop for us so we have to keep going and continue to play positively.
"The away record is very disappointing and it is not something we are proud of. It is something we want to put right but we will keep playing good football.
"We aren't that far away from getting what we need and it was a couple of passes either way which didn't go our way. Also, I think it was handball right at the end there which should have been a penalty so we were unlucky.
"The most annoying thing for me was that we didn't play our football in the first half so we saw a marked difference in the second half and we have to take the positives out of the game."
