Saunders: Bad day at the office

Franck Moussa volleyed home Ciry's opener in the third minute and Rovers squandered chances before on-loan Nottingham Forest striker David McGoldrick added the second.

McGoldrick missed a good chance to score again before he added the third from close range in the 58th minute.

Rovers tried hard to fight back and Chris Brown pulled one back with a header in the 76th minute before Adam Barton wrapped up the points for Coventry in fine style with a superb strike in the last minute.

Saunders said: "It was a disastrous result for us.

"Conceding four goals is totally unlike us and I can only put it down to a bad day at the office.

"We didn't defend well at all and that's really been our strength this season.

"It looks like a heavy defeat but I pushed players forward and that left us a bit vulnerable and they took advantage by scoring the third and fourth, but really it was the first two goals that did the damage.

"We were joint-top and we've got a slap in the face. Now we've got to bounce back."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
