It is, perhaps, a measure of Coventry City's growing assurance and positive attitude that not only did they take a point off Southampton at the weekend but that they have since lamented not taking all three.

Striker Dele Adebola thinks his side should have done better than draw 1-1 at St Mary's despite not having won away since January.

"It was a point away from home, which we haven't been picking up recently, but we had a couple of chances near the end and maybe we should have won the game," he said. "We feel we possibly should have won it and we didn't lose it, we could have come away with nothing from it after Rasiak scored with about nine minutes to go, so it could have easily gone horribly wrong so we are reasonably happy with the result."

Adebola says the Sky Blues are not fearful for their Championship lives but knows there is still something to play for: "There's still pressure on us because we want to finish as high up as possible, and now we are almost at the points tally with nine games to go that we finished on last season." ..SUPL:
