ANDY GARNER'S VERDICT: COVENTRY CITY (A)

8 March 2019

ANDY Garner was "absolutely delighted" with another three points on the road as Albion made it seven away League One games in a row unbeaten.

The first team coach was able to enjoy his birthday after the Brewers players gave him plenty to celebrate with a 2-1 victory at the Ricoh Arena.

Garner said: "We didn't start particularly well, then we had a good spell and got the goal. The pitch wasn't the best but that was the same for both teams and we kept chasing them at the start and every time we got it gave it away.

"We saw that out, then the 20-minute spell we had we were passing the ball well and keeping possession. We played some good stuff and got the goal."

It was Lucas Akins who made it 1-0 latching on to a Marcus Harness cross.

Garner said: "Lucas gave them problems all night. He's awkward to deal with and he's done what he's been told and got in the six-yard box, that's the place to be and he got a nice little tap in for his efforts."

Coventry equalised after the break but were then reduced to ten men with Enobakhare sent off for  a second yellow card.

Garner said: "The sending off obviously has helped but I think it was a foul and a red card. But we have had lots of opportunities today where we just picked the wrong pass and could easily have won by more.

"Then Jamie has just hit one. It's sat up nicely for him and he has had a go and it's gone over the keeper's hands and into the net and that was a great relief for us.

"We are a team that like playing away from home at the moment and we certainly seem to be getting the results. It's a good atmosphere, a bit of noise that might be helping us or maybe the pressure is off I don't know but we are travelling well at the moment and let's hope it continues at Charlton on Tuesday."
