“What we have to do is certainly be more clinical because we create big chances in every game,” Owen Coyle said before the game.

“But that being said, for where we are just now, we want to be winning; we can do that. So four games at home and two away, all games capable of winning because we’ve shown good performances. But what we need is that clinical edge to take the chances,” he continued.
