Blues midfielder on stalemate at St Andrew's

Flynn Downes viewed Town's 1-1 draw with Coventry City at St Andrew's this afternoon as two points dropped for Blues.

Paul Lambert's side went ahead on the half-hour mark when Will Keane headed in from Alan Judge's cross, and had other chances to extend their lead before half-time but were unable to capitalise.

The second half was a different story, though, as Coventry's Max Biamou struck in the 56th minute for the Sky Blues to take a share of the spoils.

"One hundred per cent it was two points dropped," Town's captain on the day said.

"We were flying in the first half and I think that might be the best we've played this season, but in the second half we didn't get going.

"It's hard to say what it's down to but I think it's on us. We were in control of the game and we looked solid defensively in the first half but after the break that changed.

"We dropped off and invited pressure which is very frustrating. It's something we need to work on because we can't be throwing away leads.

"There are positives to take from the game but things to work on too. That first half was a pleasure to be involved in."
