Hughes: Coventry Deserved To Win

Last updated : 06 January 2008 By Sam
"I thought Coventry were excellent and fully deserved their win. They seemed to want it more than we did," the Rovers boss said after the shock 4-1 home defeat against Iain Dowies side.

"Our second-half performance was very disappointing and in many aspects it was unacceptable.

"I'm not going to hide behind any excuses like injuries or team selection as we had enough out there to have put on a much better show than that.

"I can understand the fans' frustrations, they've been used to some good times in cup competitions here - with a couple of FA Cup semi-finals in the last three seasons - but this was not one of them."
