Boothroyd: A point gained

11 September 2010 05:00
Coventry manager Aidy Boothroyd viewed the 1-1 draw with Leicester as a positive point for his Coventry side. The Sky Blues remain unbeaten at home and have taken eight points from their opening five games. But despite taking the lead at the Ricoh Arena through Clive Platt they were second best for long periods and Andy King equalised for the Foxes in the 76th minute. Boothroyd acknowledged Leicester's superiority while hailing the resilience of his own team. "If I'd played like that as a Leicester player or (as a) fan or from Paulo's point of view, I would be disappointed not to get three points," he said. "But the reason they haven't got three points is because we are very difficult to beat. We are dogged and we are horrible and we are a work in progress. We are getting better all the time. "We are disappointed with the result. Everyone wants to beat their rivals in a local derby but at the end of the day we will look at this as a positive point. You are not going to win every game by scoring lots of goals but it's going to take time."
