SLADE TO FIGHT TO BIT­TER END

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

RUS­SELL Slade de­fi­antly says he will not give in this sea­son, de­spite Coven­try City’s dire sit­u­a­tion in League One.

The Mid­lands side were 14 points off safety be­fore yes­ter­day’s game with Shrews­bury and look des­tined for League Two, but Slade de­fended his record since tak­ing charge in De­cem­ber.

“Just be­cause I’m find­ing it dif­fi­cult to win a game now, it doesn’t mean I’m a bad man­ager,” he said.

“I’ll keep my­self go­ing be­cause I’m not men­tally weak. That’s just the way I am. I’ve never given up fight­ing in my life – I’ll rock up and be pos­i­tive.”
