Baker: We threw away the win

Coventry captain Carl Baker feels his side "threw away" victory as they were beaten 2-1 at home by fellow strugglers Scunthorpe.

Baker: Regretful

Baker: Regretful

Baker's free-kick handed the Sky Blues a 35th-minute lead but Leon Clarke's brace, the first from the penalty spot just before half-time, clinched all three points for the Iron.

Coventry have now lost 19 points from winning positions this season - the worst record in all four top divisions in England.

"I'd rather not score if it meant we were going to win but it didn't happen for us," Baker told City's official website. "It is all about the three points for me and that's what I focus on, not getting a goal.

"I think we threw away the game a little if I am honest. After we went 1-0 up, we conceded an awful goal. We could have stopped that easily by doing the right things.

"I didn't know whether it was a penalty or not, didn't look like it from where I was. I thought Clarke had handled it. The ref has given it and it has let them back in the game when we could have been out of sight really. We haven't got going in the second half at all and that was really disappointing. We played well when we went behind but that isn't the way it should be as we have to keep up that tempo which is required for the whole game."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
