City Reserves Go For Victory

Coventry City reserves go into tonight’s game clash with Tranmere Rovers at Highfield Road tonight knowing that victory will secure them the Pontins League Division One title.

If the Sky Blues do win then they will go down in history as the last team to take the title due to the decision to change the structure of the league next season.

Reserve team manager Trevor Peake is delighted that City are still in with a chance of winning the title and is keeping his fingers crossed that his side take the silverware.

He said:

"We thought we had wasted our chance when we went to Middlesborough and lost that game 4-3. It was probably a great game to watch if you were a neutral, but it didn’t do me any good.

"Then Boro drew their game at Port Vale which allows us to leap-frog over both them and Oldham on goal difference if we win tonight.

"We want to go out on a winning note so let’s hope we have got the players and can produce the performance to do that.

"It’s nice to win anything at any level, and if this is the last one of these titles then so be it, perhaps we will get to keep the trophy forever!"

Peake paid particular tribute to some of the players who have helped the success of the reserve side over the season, especially the club’s senior professionals.

"The attitude of the older players has been excellent because it is not easy to get it right, but their attitude has been splendid.

"We have had Gary McAllister, Philippe Clement and other internationals so that has been very pleasing for me, and we haven’t let many goals in because my old friend Steve Ogrizovic has been there most of the time.

"There is nothing you can tell Oggy about how to play the game, he does so much for the back four and having a player of that ability gives us an edge over other teams in the league."
