Leeds back on track as Coventry rue misfortune - Garry Doolan

Copy from Football Unlimited of 27/12/2005.

Misfortune combined with misdemeanour to condemn Coventry to their first defeat in four games. The visitors hit the woodwork four times and missed a penalty, but could still have won had woeful defending not undermined the valiant endeavours of the rest of the team.

After two games without a win, normal service resumed for promotion-chasing Leeds. Only their most partisan supporter, however, would deny Coventry deserved the three points. Micky Adams, the Coventry manager, certainly rued the intervention of the woodwork. "We created the chances and have been very unfortunate," he said. "We dominated possession and frustrated Leeds, but, if you hit the post and the crossbar as many times as us, there is a feeling it is not going to be your day."

Even the assistant Leeds manager Sam Ellis was forced to concede some measure of support for Coventry. "They top the table for hitting the post and bar," he said. "It is usually us complaining about that bad luck in front of goal, so we know exactly how they must feel."
