Coventry City manager Andy Thorn still feels that City have enough games to avoid relegation into League One.
Thorn who was heavily criticised by the City support for his substitutions, blamed tiredness, although Bristol City had less time to recover from their away game on Saturday which started after City's home game against Peterborough had finished, told the Press Association: "I was pleased to go in 1-0 up at half-time because we hadn't played well.
"I thought we looked very leggy in the second half. We have some injuries and some knocks and numbers told on us in the end. Bristol looked fresher than we did.
"But we have been on a good run prior to this game and we will pick the players up and go again.
"We have enough games left to get ourselves out of trouble and Bristol probably have a tougher run-in, so it isn't over yet."
