Turner feels for Coventry fans

Coventry City

Coventry City defender Ben Turner admits that he sympathises with the Sky Blues fans following their recent run of poor results at the Ricoh.

Chris Coleman's side, now 17th, have won just twice in 11 games - and have not won any of their last six at home.

"It must be very frustrating for them because the same fans coming week in week out saw Premiership football," Turner told BBC Coventry & Warwicks.

"But they must keep the faith because were trying to do the right things."

He added: "People are pulling together and hopefully, in the next few seasons, we can push for the Premiership".

Birmingham-born defender Turner, 20, made his first league start under Coleman (who took charge back in February) in Saturday's 2-2 home draw with Nottingham Forest.

And, with fellow defenders Isaac Osbourne, Stephen Wright and skipper Scott Dann all still sidelined with injury, Turner is expected to continue against the Championship's bottom side Charlton Athletic at The Valley on Tuesday night.
