Boothroyd warns Cov against complacency

Coventry manager Aidy Boothroyd was unhappy that his side's first half performance meant that the majority of a record Ricoh Arena crowd went home disappointed after a 3-2 defeat to Leeds. Boothroyd, who used to be on Leeds' coaching staff, intimated that his team's recent run of form, that had yielded three wins from four, had allowed complacency to set in in front of the 28,184 crowd. "We've been doing well and I warned against it, that in the Championship you have to be at your best al the time," he said. "In the first half there was no doubt who was the better team. You can't give yourself the uphill battle we gave ourselves. It has to be used as a lesson that when you are successful for a period of the season, you don't rest on your laurels. "Their goals were poor goals. It was us that allowed the opposition to score. Robert Snodgrass' was a good finish but I could probably score if you let me run through."
