City boss hails teams resilience Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd has spoken of his disappointment of Saturday's draw with Leicester. Boothroyd admitted that Leicester were the better team on the day and that if he was Paulo Sousa he would be hugely disappointed not to have returned home with three points. While acknowledging his side were second best for much of the game, he did praise his players for their resilience. Boothroyd said, "If I'd played like that as a Leicester player, as a fan or from Paulo's point of view, I would be disappointed not to get three points, 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." "We didn't threaten the Leicester goal nearly enough. We know that and we know we can do a lot better than that. There are a lot of excuses we could make but it's a good solid point."
