Bruce's View: Coventry City

Last updated : 01 November 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

Nicklas Bendtner's first half goal gave Blues their third straight League victory and lifted them to fourth in the Championship table.

"Our defeat against Norwich was about as bad a night as I have had in football, the Blues boss said after the 1-0 win against Mickey Adams' side.

"When you have ten players, many of whom are young, you have to hit rock bottom. But the players' hunger and attitude since has been terrific.

"But we are only a quarter of the way through the season and we have to carry it on. If we keep going like this we will be there or thereabouts.

"Nicklas (Bendtner) still has a lot to learn but he is only 18 and his talent is there for all to see."
