Got to be careful here. By not scoring, we're allowing them to grow into the game. And they are.

They've stepped up their pressing game and we suddenly look clueless.

We dont like it up us, Mr Mainwaring.

Missed the first 20. Not impressed since tbh. Wide open at the back. Doesn't seem any leadership. Can see another Preston second half.

Since the Henry injury and water Break Coventry have been better

Coventry are no Preston. I think we'll tear them apart in the second half. 3-0.

Think we should bring on Marcondes

For some reason they stood off us at the start and we looked good as we always do when teams do that. Then they organised and pressed in midfield and we looked stodgy and our build up play was really bad, as usual when teams do that.

We should still win though...

Crossing is poor. stats say 2 out of 18 crosses successful. can't we vary it a bit on the ground. Seems a bit one dimensional

We haven't been around the box TBH. We keep getting the ball back in midfield easily, advancing 20 yards and having an effort at goal pretty much instantly. Would prefer to see a bit of patience and look to build pressure around their box

HT 0-0. Should really be 2 or 3 up. Really came out of the blocks. Have had a fair few good chances, Pontus missing one from 2 yards out! After Henry's injury break (seems ok now), Coventry got back in it and a bit of sloppy marking from a free kick could have let them get ahead. Jensen has been superb, Canos has grown into the game, Toney linking well up front and Marcondes getting up to support him. DaSilva looking very strong driving forward. We've played some nice stuff at times but final ball as always letting us down. Dalsgaard and Henry main culprits. Mbuemo struggling a little. Come out with the same energy and tempo second half and we should get the goal we deserve. Take our foot off the pedal as we did a little towards the end and Coventry could still nick it. There's plenty of space in and around their defence for us to get something though. Fancy a Ghoddos rocket from the edge of the box... There was one moment at the end of the half where we really showed our old defensive mentality, everyone getting back into shape and closing their opportunities off.. Good to see that as for a while it looked like we'd gone a little slack at the back.

Pretty good first half just missing a goal. Not getting enough out of Canos and Mbeumo towards the end of the second half. Jensen and Da Silva playing well in midfield. Conceded two decent chances to them but we had the better of the first half. A goal and we will relax a bit more and make decisions upfront. Fingers crossed anyway

Mbeumo's doing OK. We all are. Let's not get carried away with the negativity, everyone. Coventry have improved, but we had the lion's share of that. Just need to convert one, then the floodgates will give.

He is not doing ok as he’s not doing anything apart from losing the ball in the rare occasions he’s got it....get Fosu on for him ASAP before it’s too late

Very bright start, but Coventry came more into it towards half time.

Bloody hell we have some negative fans when we have a small blip (if you can even call it that).

GET IN.

Some people should now give it a rest and get behind the team.

Interesting stat that the commentators just came out with that Toney has done something that Watkins didn't do last season, and scored three games in a row.
