JOE WON’T WALK OUT ON SKY BLUES

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

COVEN­TRY City goal­keeper Joe Mur­phy has pledged his fu­ture to the cri­sis hit club.

With Coven­try docked ten points and head­ing into liq­ui­da­tion, Mur­phy, Leon Clarke and Carl Baker have all been tipped to be off­loaded to save City £1m in wages.

But Mur­phy dis­missed that spec­u­la­tion af­ter re­veal­ing man­ager Steven Press­ley had called the ex­pe­ri­enced trio in for a meet­ing.

He said:“The gaffer had a meet­ing with my­self, Carl and Leon af­ter the news about liq­ui­da­tion and the penalty.

“Be­cause we are the older lads he wanted to have a chat about help­ing to keep morale high among the younger­sters. The club want to keep ev­ery­body here.

“It’s a tough time and a real downer. Ev­ery­body wanted to start the sea­son on zero points and play­ing at The Ri­coh.

“I feel sorry for the gaffer and the fans but we’ve just got to get on with it. The team spirit is great but we’ve got a mas­sive moun­tain to climb.”
