The burgeoning optimism at Coventry City was articulated by Andy Morrell yesterday as the utility player maintained his side had experienced a watershed in their season.
According to the 31-year-old, that came against Norwich City when, even though they did not beat the East Anglians, Coventry began to play well and look as though they would not meekly accept the fate of relegation some had predicted for them.
Since drawing that game at the Ricoh Arena 2-2, City have put together three consecutive wins and posted their first away victory since March.
"To have turned a bit of a corner is really good and it's come at the right time for us," Morrell said. "The Norwich
game is the start of it because it was the first of three games at home against teams were were hoping to beat.
"Although we didn't win the Norwich game, we drew and I thought we showed signs of turning our season around. Three wins have followed since then and it's been a great boost for the club so, hopefully, we can take this mini-run on now during the hectic festive period."
Meanwhile, reports emerged yesterday linking Stern John, who has recently returned to Coventry after a loan spell with Derby County, with French side Paris St Germain.
It is claimed that a deal worth the £250,000 the Sky Blues paid to Birmingham City for his services in September 2004 could be struck.
With Micky Adams likely to have no money to spend on players when the transfer window reopens on January 1, the Sky Blues may listen to offers for the striker who scored against Crystal Palace reserves on Tuesday. ..SUPL:
