Coleman Happy With A Point At Swansea City

Coleman Happy With A Point At Swansea City

Swansea-born Coventry City boss Chris Coleman said he was happy to see his side claim a point at Swansea City on Tuesday night.

Coventry set up to defend from the start and they made it difficult for us to get into our usual passing game.

Chris Coleman said he worked with his side in training before the game to frustrate us and that's exactly what they did:

'We must be happier than Swansea taking a point from here,' said Coventry manager Chris Coleman.

'They keep possession well but we have worked tactically over the last few days on how to close them down and the hard work has earned us a point.

'We hoped to play on the counter-attack but gave the ball away too cheaply but apart from one shot that hit the post, we kept them very quiet.

'They build well from the back but we frustrated them and stopped them playing.

'We want to finish as high as possible but to come to Swansea and hang on after losing our last two games by late goals was a big test of character and we came through it well with a strong defensive performance.'
