Micky Adams on Threat Posed By City

Port Vale manager Micky Adams has said that his side have to concentrate and defend better than they did against League One leaders Leyton Orient.

Adams told Port Vale's website: “We have to concentrate and we have to defend better than we have done at certain times, and when I say that, for long periods of the game against Leyton Orient we defended superbly.

“But there is just this lapse of concentration that cost us goals and we have got to be concentrating for ninety, or ninety five minutes, however long it takes, because Coventry have got a front four that are as good as an in the league.

“They have scored goals, they are a handful and Leon Clarke and the boy Callum Wilson are a good combination.

“Baker on the right tucks in slightly more than the lad on the left wing but as a front four they are a handful.

“If they don’t get crosses into the box then their full backs come and create spaces to get crosses in. They are a very attack-minded side and what they have done recently, they haven’t sacrificed their defending much.

“They have defended reasonably well – I saw them against Gillingham and they defended reasonably well, and against Colchester as well, so we have certainly got our hands full.

“If we give them time and space to play, they are a confidence team and they have got a good mixture of youth and experience where, given time, they will enjoy the occasion."
