📝 Report: Coventry City 3-2 Bristol City

City were undone by Matty Godden’s stoppage-time winner at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The Robins had led twice through Chris Martin’s penalty and Andi Weimann’s goal but a spot kick from Godden, Callum O’Hare’s equaliser and then Godden’s finish denied the Robins.

THE BACKGROUND

City made four changes from the side that started against Birmingham City in midweek.

Callum O’Dowda made his first start since October 16th, Han-Noah Massengo and Alex Scott came in for Nahki Wells and Matty James - who limped off against the Blues, while Cameron Pring came into the side for Jay Dasilva.

The Robins were roared on by more than 3,000 supporters at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Nigel Pearson did not travel to the Midlands due to feeling unwell and Assistant Manager Curtis Fleming took charge of the team against the Sky Blues.

WHAT HAPPENED
Dan Bentley had to re-act quickly inside the first two minutes when he dived to his right as Gustavo Hamer shot from outside the box.

City had an appeal for a penalty turned down when O’Dowda ran on to Martin’s header and was brought down by Moore.

Bentley was called into action in the 22nd minute Bentley saved Michael Rose’s far-post header and O’Dowda blocks the rebound shot.

Scott was booked for a later challenge on Hamer but showed no nerves to get back and put his body between O’Hare and the ball and shield the ball to Bentley.

City’s breakthrough came at the end of the first half when Ian Maatsen was sent off for pulling down O’Dowda in the area, with Chris Martin scoring from the spot.

Six minutes after the break Coventry got the benefit of Jeremy Simpson’s whistle when Vyner was judged to have brought down Gyökeres, with Matty Godden putting the penalty just past the reaches of Bentley.

City were in front again as Bakinson saw his shot parried by Moore, before Martin followed up to square for Weimann, tapping in for his seventh goal of the season.

That lead lasted just five minutes when a ball came back to O’Hare from a corner and he fired the ball low through a crowd of bodies and past Bentley

Coventry got the winner in stoppage time after Kelly poked the ball through to Godden who fired the ball in low.
