Boss's view after ten man Lions surrender lead at Ricoh Arena

Neil Harris couldn't hide his frustration after watching his side beaten for only the third time in 18 games at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Byron Webster had given The Lions a first-half lead but The Sky Blues turned the game on its head in the second period thanks to goals from John Fleck and Marcus Tudgay after Shaun Williams was dismissed shortly before the half-hour mark.

"We were in control of the game until the sending-off," Harris said. "That was clearly the turning point and having had a brief look at the incident again I haven't got any complaints.

"I felt even with ten men we were defending well and limiting their chances until they equalised with a wonder-strike. I was disappointed with the second goal, but we were unfortunate not to nick another one ourselves near the end.

"I praised the players for their efforts afterwards, and now we must recover quickly ready for another big game at The Den on Tuesday night."
