Harrison speaks up for Clingan
Assistant manager Steve Harrison refused to criticise Sammy Clingan following his penalty failure in Saturday's 2-0 derby defeat at Leicester.
The Sky Blues, already two goals down at the King Power Stadium, were handed the chance to get back into the game with 17 minutes remaining when Wes Morgan fouled Alex Nimely in the area.
Despite having only just entered the fray, substitute Clingan took the responsibility - with what was his first touch of the ball - but duly saw his spot-kick saved by Kasper Schmeichel.
Harrison, standing in for virus-hit boss Andy Thorn, rued the miss but said: "I'm sure if the penalty had gone in we would have caused them some problems but he (Clingan) was determined to take it and no-one would have said anything if he had stuck it in."
