FRANCK Moussa believed Coventry deserved all three points against Portsmouth.

The 23-year-old, who is becoming a fans' favourite after joining on a free transfer in September, said there was a sense of dejection in the changing room after the full-time whistle after the visitors' injury time equaliser.

“The lads were really disappointed to concede in the last minute of the game,” Moussa told the Observer.

“We were just trying to understand why we conceded that goal because we felt like we had restricted them to a few chances and if anything it looked as though we were going to go on and get the second goal.

“We don't want this to happen again and we're going to look into why and how we conceded.

“If may have been a lapse in concentration or maybe one or two individuals could have done better but we're not here to point fingers at anybody.

“We all need to look at ourselves and look at what we all could have done better, eradicate those mistakes and make sure we see the game out next time.”

Robins' side have scored nine goals in their last three matches, with Moussa bagging two himself.

And the former Leicester City midfielder revealed how the players have adapted to giving the club's attacking players more opportunities in training.

“We're trying to be a bit more creative in and around the box.

“We've been working on getting balls into the box so the attacking players can have an impact and get goals.

“We started off well in the first half. We had a few chances and we scored the first goal so it was pleasing to be ahead at half-time.

“In the second half we were doing our best to keep the lead and try to score a second goal but it didn't come although we did have chances.

“If we start turning those chances into goals then we'll have less things to worry about.

“Unfortunately we did concede the late goal which doesn't help when you look at the overall result of the game but anyone who watched the game would see we tried to do the right things, at the right times and one lapse of concentration cost us two points."
