Coleman Doesn't Mind Winning Ugly
Coventry City boss Chris Coleman says he's not looking for a Swansea City style performance on Tuesday, he just wants the three points.
His comments ahead of Tuesday night's game are hardly going to be echoed by Roberto Martinez - a manager who likes his side to perform with a high tempo free flowing passing game, to entertain the crowd, and with that, to claim 3 points.
It's a bundle us fans have been enjoying since the Spaniard took over as boss in February 2007, and long may it continue.
Coleman's side beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 by playing ugly, and he won't mind a repeat of that if it means adding 3 to their points tally, the former Swan said:
|'We never really attempted to play pretty football or flowing football against Sheffield,'' |
'We said let's go there and do to them what's been done to us week in, week out.
'We have got Swansea tomorrow night and I don't care if we do that again, even though we are at home, it doesn't matter to me. I just want three points.
'I don't want to be sitting after the game saying: 'Do you know what we may have lost but didn't we pass the ball well and create some chances today?
'Maybe the supporters are expecting a pretty game but maybe it is not going to be, but I don't care as long as we get the points.''
