Defender Luke Foster is lost for words after what he describes as a crazy five minutes.
“We have to use our frustration in a positive manner and make sure we concentrate our efforts on the league.
“But it is all taken away in the last five minutes, all the lads are devastated, absolutely devastated. We have to move on now and look forward to the game on Sunday and make sure we bounce back.
“The change in formation at times looked like it worked very well, we played some good football against a very good Coventry outfit.
“It looks like the third goal was offside which shows we were hard done by but there is a lot of things we can look at such as the good bits and how we played in the 90 minutes. We threw the game away in a short space of time.
“We know we should have never got to that position, there is enough about us to see games out like that.
Foster said: “It was a crazy five minutes right at the end, I don’t think I have ever experienced a stoppage period like that in my entire life, it was unbelievable.
After the game, North End’s number 27 exclusively told the Club’s official website the lads are devastated but will look for the right reaction at home to Walsall on Sunday.
Foster, who scored Preston’s equaliser to make the score 1-1 midway through the second half, witnessed the Club fall to two dramatic late Sky Blues goals and consequently knocked out of the JPT.
