Joe Murphy says that Coventry City should take pride from their showing against Arsenal.

Joe Murphy has hailed Coventry City's performance in the 4-0 defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Sky Blues were 2-0 down at half time following a brace by Lukas Podolski, but managed to prevent the Gunners from adding to the scoreline until the 85th minute, when Olivier Giroud struck.

Santi Cazorla then added a fourth, but Coventry goalkeeper Murphy says that they should be "proud" of what they achieved against the Premier League side.

"We can be really proud of our second-half showing tonight. The lads came out and went at them," Murphy told the club's official website.

"We made it competitive and it was a shame to see concede two goals in the first half as it could have been a different game.

"Hopefully, we can learn from the experience and now that we are out of the cup, we can concentrate on the league."

Steven Pressley's men are 11th in League One.
