“Bristol City was a hard one to take, but the Chelsea game far less so,” Coates told The Sentinel. “Every game you see mistakes, which don’t always get punished, but against Chelsea they clearly were.
“I actually thought we played well and the scoreline was certainly unfair. We made three mistakes that were all punished. Forget the fourth goal, the game was done and dusted by then.
“But I felt that if we could have got a goal back at 2-0 down, and we had good chances, then we could have got back into the game.
“I wasn’t disappointed by the performance, just the losing. You’re always disappointed to lose.”
