Marcus Hall Urges Caution

Marcus Hall, Coventry City FCCoventry City full back Marcus Hall has urged his team-mates to ensure that their three game unbeaten run is not another false start to the season.

The 23-year-old has returned to the side in the absence of suspended left-back David Burrows, and was present in all of City’s last three games – with wins coming over Tranmere and West Ham and a well earned point at Goodison Park.

But with many people at Coventry now convinced that the Sky Blues are ready to shrug off their early start and head on up the table, Hall is cautious that the team do not get too carried away.

He said:

"We always seem to be saying that the club has turned the corner and then straight away we suffer a little hiccup.

"We have just got to keep playing and concentrating on each game as it comes to make sure that we get the right results and keep the good run going.

"We are starting to play better but in terms of league points the run has only added another four, so we cannot start patting ourselves on the back yet, there is still a lot to do."

On a personal note the defender has been pleased with his contribution since coming back into the side and is now hoping to keep David Burrows sidelined.

He said:

"At first the pace of the game was very quick for me having been out for so long but I have adjusted to it now and in Saturday’s match with Everton I thought I played quite well.

"It has been nice for me to be involved with the good run because when you come into a side that is doing badly and things start to pick up it gives you that extra bit of confidence because you feel you have made a difference.

"David Burrows has been unlucky with his suspension but that has given me my chance to have a decent run in the team and hopefully I can keep the place when he is back.

"I have said several times before that there is no bad feelings between me and David at all, in fact I learn a lot from watching him play and know that some of the things he does well are things I need to improve on."
