"First-half as good as we have played but lessons to learn" says Stuart after Coventry draw

Stuart Taylor felt the first-half performance was as good as Blues have played this season.

Will Keane’s header gave Town a deserved lead at the break which could have been more but Coventry were much improved in the second-half and took a point through Max Biamou’s finish.

“We were excellent in the first-half. We controlled and dominated the game as we wanted to,” Town’s assistant manager told iFollow Ipswich.

“We got the lead and that was as well as we have played all season in the first 45 minutes. We had other chances and should have seen the game out.

“The intensity was high. We moved the ball really well and pressed them when we didn’t have possession.

“We needed to be better in the second-half though and we need to learn from that. They came at us and got the early goal and we need to learn to manage the game better.

“We didn’t play as well as we are capable of after the break and while it was a good game to watch for the supporters, we are obviously disappointed we didn’t build on the first-half and come away with all three points.”

Stuart had praise for Town’s goalscorer, who found the net for the second successive game.

“Will has worked really hard to get where he is now. He’s in a good place, really positive and is getting his rewards now,” he added.
