The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Joshua Richards

TONY Mow­bray has been around long enough to know that Coven­try’s im­pres­sive start might not last.

The Sky Blues had a 100 per cent record in League One head­ing into the week­end – just months af­ter Mow­bray pre­vented them fall­ing into the fourth tier.

But Mow­bray, who saw pro­mo­tion bids fiz­zle out with old club Mid­dles­brough, has called for per­spec­tive.

“I had two teams at West Brom – one that I in­her­ited and one we man­aged to build – that had dif­fer­ent qual­i­ties but were both ex­cit­ing,” he said.

“The squads at Mid­dles­brough proved that they could get to the top of the league over 25 games, though we didn’t man­age to sus­tain it for var­i­ous rea­sons.

“This group has been put to­gether over the past month and they’ve started well, so I think their longevity will prove to me whether they’re an ex­cit­ing team or some­thing that still needs work­ing on, de­vel­op­ing and adding to.”
