Tony Mowbray may have felt that ‘both teams were as bad as each other’ at London Road on Saturday afternoon but the Coventry City manager knew full well the value of the three points his side took away from the game to move themselves a similar distance clear of the relegation zone.

Blair Turgott’s winner against Peterborough meant that the Sky Blues chalked up a third successive away victory and showed that Mowbray inherited a squad with more attacking options than City have had since January last year when Leon Clarke left the club.

The likes of Turgott, Odelusi and Samuel have all shown that they have pace and directness in their game to trouble opposing defences and make the different in tight games like the one against the Posh.

For former West Ham man Turgott it came at the end of a week in which Mowbray had been questioning the ‘desire’ of the player to really make his mark at the club where he was given a chance by Steven Pressley after his Hammers exit.

‘He’s been brilliant since then, he has worked hard in training and he has come on for us today and scored the winning goal.’

Nine points from a possible twelve for City have given them the perfect platform for upcoming matches against two of the teams below them in League One, Leyton Orient and Notts County.

The O’s come to the Ricoh Arena on Wednesday night in similarly good form to the Sky Blues and knowing that their hosts have struggled to get wins under their belt on home soil in recent weeks.

But the visitors need the three points which will hopefully allow Mowbray’s men to use that pace and energy up front to make the most of any space they are given.
