Average Player Ratings v Coventry City (h)

Average Player Ratings v Coventry City (h)
Only the second home defeat this season, and to one of the division's top sides. That side contains Jodi Jones, believed to be on his way to the Premier League very soon, and Duckens Nazon, on loan from Championship Wolves and with 23 international caps to his name already. Guess which two players made the difference? Sometimes you come up against outstanding individual players, and if they are better than you are, you lose. End of.

What about us? Having just come from non-league football with a clutch of players with little or no Football League experience, that is not at all bad. Danny believes only Sheffield United of the sixteen promoted clubs have a better record than us, and it would be a safe bet that every single one of them has a bigger squad than we have. Be disappointed with a defeat, but very content with where we are overall.

JOSH VICKERS takes top spot this week, and by a considerable margin. He is starting to show exactly what attracted two Premier League clubs in his teens.

"MOM, could do nothing with two well taken goals. Some good saves, more commanding each game." (berksimps)

"Head and shoulders above anyone else today and he had to be." (syimp)

"Kept the score down." (bonsonshead)

Returning hero MATT RHEAD takes second place after scoring City's opener, only his second goal of the season.

"Justified selection and playing as traditional 9 caused all sorts of problems for Coventry's CBs." (Chesterimp)

"Showed what he can bring. Great finish. Good hold up. Brilliant in the air." (elkimp)

"Can't help feeling we are a better side when he plays, took his goal well." (Cambridgeimp83)

At the back, SEAN LONG continues to impress with his defensive abilities and his attacking prowess on the overlap.

"Good cross for the goal...hampered by a booking that he should not have received." (UnbelievableJeff)

"Made the goal with great cross." (Red Wimp)

"Got forward well." (plumbob)

The average team score of 6.27 is one of the lowest in recent times.

1. Josh Vickers 7.92
2. Matt Rhead 7.03
3. Sean Long 6.73
4. Sean Raggett 6.65
5. Alex Woodyard 6.38
6. Neal Eardley 6.34
7. Harry Anderson, Michael Bostwick 6.15
9. Nathan Arnold 6.00
10. Rob Dickie 5.84
11. Elliott Whitehouse 5.34
12. Matt Green 4.69
