Fleetwood Town head coach Joey Barton spoke following his sides goalless draw at home to in-form Coventry City.

Barton’s side failed to cause too many problems for play-off chasing Coventry as they had to settle for a second 0-0 draw within four days.

Here are the best bits from Barton’s post-match interview:

On the result…

“Every point in this division matters and it’s not a bad point against Coventry.

“It’s a little bit frustrating because we’ve played Coventry twice this season and had good spells in both games, but we’ve only taken one point off a team who are in and around us.

“It’s more disappointing because we’ve got the quality to take at least four points from teams like Coventry, but instead we’ve only managed to get one this season”.

On back-to-back clean sheets…

“We’ve got back-to-back clean sheets for the first time this season against a free scoring side.

“They’re a good team and they were always going to have spells in the game and make chances, but we coped well.

“It’s just frustrating that it’s another game where we can’t convert a close game into wins, we’ve not been doing that enough this season”.

On injuries…

“I’m so gutted for Harrison (Biggins). He’s waited so long for his opportunity and when he’s finally got it, he’s gone in for a tackle, hit the lad’s knee and it looks like he’s fractured his cheekbone.

“Kyle Dempsey got a knee in the back. He’s been struggling with that with a while, so he’ll have a scan and we’ll see how he is, but we are concerned.

“There will be chances for other players now and we have to be active in the transfer market because we’re another two players down, so there’s work to be done before Doncaster on Saturday”.
