Hudson post-Coventry | A good battling performance
Mark Hudson spoke to the press following City's 0-0 draw with Coventry City.
"When you don't play particularly well with the ball then it is important not to get beat," Mark began. "I thought we turned the ball over too much and put the ball at risk. We got trapped a little bit a few times.
"When that happens, you've got to put yourself on the line and stay together, and we did that.
"But, a clean sheet at this ground against a very good Coventry City side, a very good manager [Mark Robins] and in my opinion the best striker in the league [Viktor Gyökeres] shows that the boys are putting their bodies on the line for the Club.
"Our minimum requirement is that we fight for each other and we saw plenty of that today. We've had fatigue and cramp issues. The lads looked tired, but they kept themselves going.
"It was a good battling performance. The fans were with us until the end, and it was good to see so many of them here today."
The Bluebirds were without Callum Robinson and Kion Etete for the clash. Huds continued: "Robbo travelled and just missed out. We couldn't risk him.
"Kion has obviously had a spike in intensity and game time recently. He was fatigued and putting a player at risk isn't something I wanted to do. They'll be back in contention."
Forward Isaak Davies made a welcome return late on at the Coventry Building Society Arena. The promising striker missed the first half of the campaign through injury.
"It is very difficult to come into a game with that tempo after being out for so long," the City boss concluded. "To come on with ten minutes left and have to chase and battle against three big centre backs. He's always willing.
"It's brilliant to see him back. I said in front of the lads at the end how good it is to have him back in the group. He's champing at the bit."
