Sky Blues graft pleases Coleman

Coventry manager Chris Coleman spoke of his delight after seeing his side pick up a point in a goalless draw at Swansea.The nearest either side came to scoring was when Swans midfielder Darren Pratley struck the base of the Coventry post in the 19th minute.Coleman said: "We must be happier than Swansea taking a point from here. They keep possession well, but we have worked tactically over the last few days on how to close them down and the hard work has earned us a point."We hoped to play on the counter-attack, but gave the ball away too cheaply, but apart from one shot that hit the post, we kept them very quiet."They build well from the back, but we frustrated them and stopped them playing."We want to finish as high as possible, but to come to Swansea and hang on after losing our last two games by late goals was a big test of character and we came through it well with a strong defensive performance."
