Coventry City manager Micky Adams was angered by abuse aimed at him in Saturday’s win at Barnsley and warned it was a "quick way to get rid of managers".

The travelling Sky Blues support chanted ‘You don’t know what you’re doing’ at Adams when Wayne Andrews replaced Leon McKenzie with seven minutes remaining at Oakwell.

But the former Crystal Palace forward, making his first competitive appearance for the club following an ankle injury, turned the jeers to cheers within seconds as he scored the only goal of the match with a crisp low shot.

Adams admitted at the time to being "amazed and angry" at the section of support that chose to heckle him from the stands.

"I am upset with the reaction of the supporters - and if I’m being honest it did get to me, I’m not going to hide that," Adams said. "If I was shouting at someone that I didn’t think they knew what they were doing in their job I think most people would be upset.

"I think I have helped this football club take big strides over the last couple of years - but if the fans want to get rid of Micky Adams then that’s the quick way of doing it.

"It hurts because I have taken this club forward and we are looking like a club that is going places.

"If they don’t want me at the helm they should just keep singing songs like that, because that is the quick way to get rid of managers."

Adams refused to acknowledge the City fans as he led his victorious team off the field at Oakwell but admits he regrets his decision not to do so.

He said: "The one mistake I made was failing to acknowledge our supporters when I left the pitch. For that I apologise and I hold my hands up, because I should have thanked everyone for making the trip up to Barnsley.

"I have got big shoulders and I will be there again against Birmingham tomorrow making rubbish substitutions!"n Leicester City are investigating methods of "generating new investment" amid continued speculation that former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric is poised to take over the Coca-Cola Championship club.

Mandaric had already declared earlier this month that there was a "50-50 chance" of him taking over at the Walkers Stadium — and he was linked with a #25 million bid for City over the weekend.
