Buchanan's City Reaction

22 December 2012

David Buchanan backs up his manager’s view by believing PNE deserved more than a point at Coventry.

“We defended our box really well this afternoon and we created chances, luckily Lee Holmes took his chance right at the end. We have to play like that now until the end of the season, if we play like that we will win most games.

“The gaffer has said it to us before, teams are not getting many chances against us but they are converting them. In the first half we had three chances with David Amoo, Graham Cummins and Andy Procter but we didn’t take any of them and that is what football is about. 

“It is upsetting that Coventry’s only shot on target resulted in their goal and we need to start cutting those kind of things out. 

“We forced them to want to give in, they had a good chance right at the end but it would have been injustice if they won the game. We deserved to at least come away with a point but probably should have taken all three.

“I don’t think anybody could have had any compliments, there was only one team that was going to win the game, we pushed on, we were first to every ball and put pressure on the Coventry defence. 

“It was good to start the game and play the full 90 minutes, we have come away from the game down beat to be fair because there was only one team that was going to win the game in the second half but overall I am happy with the performance.

Talking to PNE.Com after the final whistle, Buchanan is adamant if North End can perform like they did on Saturday afternoon, the Club will see a lot more wins in the second half of the season.

Combining well down the left hand side to create a number of attacking opportunities with Lee Holmes plus keeping the Coventry attack quiet.

The attack minded full back played the full game against the Sky Blues and put in arguably his best performance since joining the Club in the summer.
