Opposing Manager's View Burnley boss Brian Laws felt it was a frustratiing afternoon as his side went down to a 1-0 defeat to Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena."I think frustration got the better of us today," said Laws to the Press Association."I thought we were in complete control for large periods of the game right up until they scored, it looked as though there was only going to be one team who were going to win the game."We were patient with the ball, we passed it really well and created a fair few chances and that disappoints me because we're not clinical enough."Particularly away from home it just seems to disappear, and our calmness in front of goal is costing us dearly."Of course that adds pressure when you concede because you want to go and get back in the game as quickly as you can, but in the last 20 minutes we stopped being patient with the ball."Laws, who revealed he may have to act in the January transfer window if his side do not start taking their chances, added: "The performance levels have been very good, they don't collate with the results."It's patience, more than anything else, because it turns out to be frustrating and I don't want the players to get that negativity or concern that we're struggling to win away from home because that becomes a mental block and I don't believe for one minute that's in their system."Patience (with the ball) has got to be the key for us. "I'm very disappointed. It was a very frustrating afternoon."
