Steve Spooner admitted Blues Under-23s were made to pay for some less than clinical finishing after they fell to a single goal defeat to Coventry City on Friday afternoon.

Blues created a host of chances and were deserving of at least a point against the Sky Blues.

The Sky Blues took a deserved lead just before half-time, but Blues piled on the pressure after that opener and largely dominated the second 45.

But they were ultimately prevented from getting anything from the fixture by a combination of some excellent Coventry goalkeeping and a failure to take advantage of the numerous openings they fashioned for themselves.

"We were disappointed with our first-half performance and changed one or two things tactically at half-time which we felt needed to be done and it seemed to get us back into the game," said Blues' Lead Professional Development Coach Spooner.

"But for some good goalkeeping and a little bit more composure in front of goal and better technique, I thought we could have definitely got at least a draw.

"Sometimes things go for you and sometimes they don't, but it was a bitter pill to swallow.

"The positive is that recently we've been right in games, but you can't be unlucky losers.

"We've got to start turning the screw in the top half and being more clinical and composed in front of goal.

"But that's stuff for us to keep on working on moving forwards."
