Coventry 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 Citys 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.
"We always seem to be saying that the club has turned the corner and then straight

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
"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."
