Coventry City midfielder Callum O’Hare has admitted that yesterday’s performance by his side against Luton Town was way below the standards that the club have set this season.
The Sky Blues suffered a 5-0 defeat at the hands of the Hatters who dominated proceedings in-front of their own supporters.
Luton opened the scoring in the third minute as Elijah Adebayo scored from the penalty spot after being fouled in the area by Jake Clarke-Salter.
Harry Cornick doubled the Hatters’ advantage as he planted a header past Coventry goalkeeper Simon Moore.
Luke Berry then added a third for Luton before half-time.
Coventry were unable to improve in the second-half as Adebayo and Cornick scored again for the hosts as their side coasted to victory.
As a result of this defeat, the Sky Blues were overtaken by Fulham in the Championship standings.
Set to face the Cottagers on Saturday, Coventry will be determined to deliver a response to their underwhelming display against Luton.
Making reference to his side’s performance on Twitter, O’Hare has admitted that the Sky Blues failed to match their high standards in this game and thanked the club’s fans for making the trip to Luton.
The midfielder also wished one of Coventry’s supporters a speedy recovery after the game was delayed for seven minutes as paramedics had to attend to an individual in the away end at Kenilworth Road.
O’Hare posted: “That performance was nowhere near our standard we’ve set.
“Big thank you to all the supporters that travelled for still doing what they always do & I hope that the fan has recovered and is doing better.”
Having produced a dismal performance against Luton, Coventry will now need to dust themselves down before they face a Fulham side who will be looking to launch a push for promotion this season.
When you consider that the Sky Blues have yet to drop a point at the Coventry Building Society Arena during the current campaign, they will fancy their chances of delivering a promising performance in-front of their supporters.
Yet to score a goal for Coventry this season, O’Hare will be determined to break his duck against the Cottagers.
Providing that the likes of O’Hare and Viktor Gyokeres are able to produce some attacking creativity in this fixture, there is no reason why Mark Robins’ side cannot bounce back from their defeat to Luton this weekend.
