PRESSLEY’S RELIEVED IT’S OVER
pleased we again came back from a goal down.
“We’re tired but in some ways I wish there were five or six games to go.
“I’ve told the lads we haven’t won anything yet – but this season has given us a taste of what it would be like.”
While strike partner Callum Wilson showed flashes of the sharpness rumoured to make him a £3m target for Stuart Pearce’s Nottingham Forest, it was Nathan Delfouneso who struck first in the 38th minute for Coventry with a composed right foot finish after midfielder John Fleck threaded the ball into his path.
Flynn began the surge for the leveller before thrillingly swapping passes with Conor Coady and sweeping his shot past Joe Murphy.
That was almost bettered by his composure 11 minutes later in choosing just the moment to release Davies inside the box to drive across the Coventry goalkeeper.
While Clough has an iron grip on Flynn, his main miss could be man-of-the-match John Brayford, who produced another breathtaking display on the right flank in his last game on loan from Cardiff.
Meanwhile, Sky Blues boss Steven Pressley admitted his relief that a difficult season was finally over.
He said: “Both managers should be pleased.
“Matches like this where only pride is at stake on the last day of the season can be like a testimonial – but it was never that.
“I’m disappointed we lost and I didn’t think we deserved to.
“It has been a demanding and very difficult time for everyone at Coventry City including players, officials and fans alike.”
