Jon Whitney knows Atmosphere of Ricoh Arena will be Unfavorable

Jon Whitney knows that the atmosphere at Ricoh Arena on Saturday is not going to be peaceful at all as the home fans there will try a lot of things to show their dissent against the top brass of their club, but, he is not bothered about it as the coach of the visiting team.


The previous time when Ricoh Arena had hosted a game, there was a deliberate attempt by the spectators to somehow not let the game progress and for that; they threw a lot of objects towards the pitch as a result of which the game was not able to be started on usual time.

Whitney suspects that it may be the same during his team’s game as well and it may turn out to be a scenario where the game has to be stopped at some point and started again and then stopped again because of the obstructions caused by the spectators, but, he reckons that’s not going to affect his boys because he has got them prepared.

Coventry City looks fragile

New Coventry City manager Mark Robin said that his team appears to be quite fragile and lack match fitness.


He believes that his side is not good enough at the moment to compete in League One. He made the statement after his side suffered their third defeat in a row against MK Dons.

He said that he was surprised with what he has seen on the pitch and he cannot understand how the players suffered physically. For him, the League One is a demanding league, and it is important that players are at their peak physically if they want to win game.

However, he admitted that there are signs of progress and that the players are slowly getting accustomed to his playing style.

But at the moment the players do not seem to be able to play like this for 90 minutes, and this is likely to cause problems. Continue reading Coventry City looks fragile

The coach, who may likely watch the fans protest for as long as he remains in Coventry, told BBC Coventry the reason for the fans protest.

“We played a good footballing team with a bit of experience and know-how, and I thought we matched them. We worked hard, gave it our best and the longer the game went on I felt, the more threat we had.

“But to give a late goal away is where we are at the moment,” he said.

During the match with Sheffield United, City fans invaded the pitch twice in a protest directed at owner Sisu, who seem to be doing nothing about the team recent poor run of form.

The result saw City leave the relegation zone after the game at the Bescot Stadium. City got the match opener but the hosts claimed a point as they equalized.

Ruben Lameiras struck in the opening minutes of the game to prove that the visitors wanted to win. His curling shot was inches away from the opener. The Sky Blues got their opener in the 36th minute through Andy Rose. Marvin Sordell sent a low cross ten yards out but Rose reacted faster than the Walsall defenders to convert the opportunity.

The goal forced the home side to push for an equalizer. Lee Burge almost allowed it before the half time whistle as he spilled a shot from Adam Chambers. Chambers had directed a well-hit shot from 30 yards for the City shot stopper to spill but later recover. Both teams went on recess but after the break, Coventry could have put the game beyond Walsall. Daniel Agyei struck but the Walsall goalkeeper Neil Etheridge stopped it from being the second goal.
