Football Results: Derby County 1-1 Coventry City

Championship

Football Results

Tom Lawrence scored a second-half equalizer to help Derby County produce one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. Matt Godden scored his 11th goal in his last 17 games to put the visitors ahead in the 28th minute before Lawrence equalized from the penalty spot in the 66th minute. It was a result that hurt both sides’ chances in Derby’s relegation fight as well as Coventry’s playoff push.

Managers Reaction

Derby’s Wayne Rooney: “I thought the performance was very good, we certainly deserved a point, probably three but I think it’s a big important point for us. I think the referee had to give us one penalty out of the three we should have had. I told the referee after the game ‘that’s not good enough, the one on Lee Buchanan is a clear penalty. The referee might walk in off the pitch and think ‘I’ve done a good job, I’ve given a penalty which was a penalty but, actually, there are two clear penalties which he’s missed. It’s frustrating. We got emails back yesterday (about decisions at Cardiff and Bournemouth) and apparently Festy (Ebosele) is too big and strong to go down.”

Coventry’s Mark Robins: “I thought we started off okay. We got on the front foot a little bit more after the first 10 or 15 minutes and switched the play which gave us a foothold and led to a really good goal. Getting to half-time at 1-0 was good knowing they’ve got fresh legs and have had a day more to recover which always makes a difference so coming into the second half was always a stretch. I think the penalty was harsh, I really do, I think it was a little bit searching for the leg.”
