Coventry boss praises players

Coventry boss praises players - 20 Mar 2012 - Women's Football NewsCoventry City manager Paul Cudby expressed his joy after his side secured their place in the top flight of women's football for another season. 
The Sky Blues deservedly ran out 2-0 winners away at Cardiff City on Sunday thanks to strikes from Jade Formaston and Nicole Dale.
Formaston broke the deadlock between the two sides after 218 minutes of football in both league and cup this season, while Nicole Dale added a second midway through the second half.
Due to adverse weather conditions and a hectic schedule from cup competitions, the game was Coventry's first league involvement in three months and the result means Cudby's side have guaranteed their involvement in the National Division next season
"I'm delighted for everyone involved with the club that we've now finally been able to mathematically secure our status in the National Premier League," said Cudby.
"The way things have panned out, if we could keep going we might even finish top half, or even third, which would be an amazing achievement.
"Overall we performed very well. We set up with a certain game plan and whilst Cardiff had a lot of the ball and a fair amount of pressure at times, there was no point that on the sidelines we had our hearts in our mouths.
"We believed throughout that we were very disciplined and successfully limited the quality of chances that Cardiff were able to create.
"What was really pleasing was that we attacked with real purpose and belief throughout the game and felt that we deserved the goals we scored too."
Preparations for Sunday's clash could hardly have been more bizarre after Cudby and full back Katy Ward took part in a Charity Zip line for Birmingham Children's Hospital, just hours before setting off to Cardiff.
The event had participants gliding down from the Ricoh Arena's roof to the pitch and both Paul and Katy enjoyed the experience.
"The zip wire charity event was good fun, both of us were under the impression it was going to be a lot higher and faster than it turned out to be," said Paul.
"But that said, once you were up there, you still knew about it!.
"Luckily we were able to be the first two on the event, so we shot straight off to meet up with the team bus before heading down to Cardiff together."
Attentions now turn back to the League Cup this weekend in what is an historic fixture for the Sky Blues, with it being the first time the club have ever played in the Second Round of the competition.
They will play the winner of Tuesday night's showdown between Barnet and Colchester at the Bedworth Oval this Sunday but Cudby isn't too fussed who the girls play.
"The form we're in I'll be happy with either, and I think we'll give ourselves an excellent chance of progressing if we can maintain our current levels of focus and work ethic."
