COVENTRY IN CONTROL: City lose to the Sky Blues

 

Bristol City made it three defeats in a row on Easter Monday when they visited relegation threatened Coventry City.

The hosts took an early lead when Leo Ostigard finished after the Robins failed to deal with a throw-in.

Matt Godden doubled the home side's lead with a powerfully struck penalty after Tomas Kalas was adjudged to have tripped Tyler Walker in the area.

Nahki Wells grabbed a goal back with ten minutes remaining to set up a grandstand finish but it would be the Sky Blues who struck again.

Walker latched on to a poorly directed pass from Robins substitute Tommy Rowe and Callum O'Hare unselfishly teed up Viktor Gyokeres to slot in a third and condemn Bristol City to another defeat.

 

Lacking Personal Motivation

 

Bristol City boss Nigel Pearson was far from pleased with his side post-match and voiced his displeasure with BBC Radio Bristol:

"It was a poor performance and a careless one too. We gave away soft goals and we didn't compete on a physical level.

"At the moment we have too many players who are not showing enough personal motivation. I'm a believer in protecting the players but I don't think it's necessary today.

"I'm not somebody to dwell on these things, we need to find solutions.

"Today's not good enough, full stop. We've got to make sure that when we take the field next time it's a performance that shows the right amount of character."
