Bell: We Deserved Something From The Game

Coventry City midfielder David Bell believed the team deserved something out of the game after losing 1-0 at home to Swansea City yesterday.

"We won a match last night that we wouldn't have last season, the word resilience comes to mind."

HAVE YOUR SAY
Aidy Boothroyd's side dominated large periods of the game, but the Swans defence were able to hold on and get a late winner thanks to substitutes - goalscorer Stephen Dobbie and Luke Moore who both helped us to show a massive improvement for the final 20 minutes.

Bell told their Official Site:

'To play the way we did and not pick up anything from the game is very, very disappointing and all the boys in the changing room are frustrated and feel deflated after putting in a performance like we did,'

'We felt like we deserved something from the game and I felt that before they scored there only looked like one team that was going to score. A lot of their play was in front of us and then on the counter attack I felt we were a threat every time we got the ball.'

'I was pleased with my own performance, pleased that I lasted the whole game because I haven't played for ten or 11 games. I knew I'd always get a chance at some point and I've just kept my head down and kept working hard and I got a chance and I feel like I played well.'

'Everyone's frustrated because we feel like we should have got something from the game, but the manager's just said at the end there that if we play like that for the remaining 14 or 15 games we'll win a lot more than we lose.'
