Tony Mowbray set to ring the changes after Coventry drop to bottom of League One

Coventry manager Tony Mowbray will ring the changes after his side fell to the bottom of League One after a goalless draw with Oldham.

Mowbray's side are still without a win this season and the stalemate was their third 0-0 in the league at the Ricoh this season.

The City boss said: "That's the most frustrating afternoon so far, probably because the expectation was there that this would be the game where we would go and get our first three points.

"We played Oldham on the last day of last season and we totally dominated the game, scored two goals and it could have been more and yet here we are asking where that team has gone.

"They are different players - I know that - but we cannot slip that far in such a short space of time where we go from total domination of 90 minutes to hanging on at times in the second half.

"It's frustrating, disappointing and I've told the players that there will have to be changes because we can't change the results by picking the same players.

"If you look at the top end of the pitch, our decision making has got to be so much better."

Coventry striker Marcus Tudgay headed wide at the end of the first half that the home team dominated but it was Oldham's turn to take control in the second period.

After City full-back Jamie Sterry was carried off on a stretcher with a head injury, Oldham had a wave of chances.

Ollie Banks and Paul Green had opportunities for the visitors before striker Lee Erwin saw a fierce volley rattle the bar.

As the game wore on, the home side pushed to get a winner but Oldham manager Steve Robinson believes his side did enough to take the points.

He said: "I think we totally dominated the game - especially second half. We got players on the ball, created chances, hit the crossbar and I thought there was only one team in it.

"We were well organised in the first half and then really stepped it up in the second half.

"I can't ask for anything more of the players, they were absolutely terrific. We were creating chances, getting into good positions and worked our socks off - we just needed a little bit of good fortune.

"Sometimes it's just a matter of inches that can make the difference and that's three times Lee has hit the woodwork now.

"We've got a small budget, we get crowds of three or four thousand while Coventry are a big club with a big stadium. We know what we've got - players who want to play for the football club, do lots of running and show great desire.

"This is a good point but we are disappointed not to win it."
