Christie on need to pick up points
Coventry City defender Cyrus Christie has said that after the home defeat to Scunthorpe United last Saturday, City have to get going and start picking up points
"It's a poor result really because Scunthorpe haven't troubled us one bit," Christie said to the Coventry Observer's Steve Carpenter.
Christie felt he should have had two penalties in that game and said; I've gone down in the second half which was a blatant foul. He pulled me back and took my legs from beneath me as well.
"There was another incident when I got myself into the box and he took my legs again and I think the ref has got to give the penalty.
"The linesman said it's not his call to give it, so the officials haven't helped us out there and those sort of mistakes can prove to be very costly.
"We've had plenty of opportunities to score and to be fair their keeper has pulled off some good saves at the end but we never really should have lost that game. We've got to come away with the three points.
"We had built a bit of momentum but now we've taken another step back so we're going to have to go again on Saturday.
"We've got some great players here and hopefully we can just start climbing up the league table now and take three points off Hartlepool."
