Victor Gyokeres scored with the last kick of the game to help Coventry produce one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. A Harry Pickering own goal put the hosts in front before Bradley Dack equalized just after the break. Scott Wharton is thought to have scored the winner in the 82nd minute but was denied by Gyokeres in the ninth minute of stoppage time. Blackburn just managed a single shot on target in the first half.
Coventry’s Mark Robins: “At half-time, I was telling them to get away with what might have been, decisions that didn’t go our way that should have gone our way early on in the first half. I’m not allowed to talk about it, but these are the things you can’t shy away from. It is what it is, they are there to make decisions and they made the decision. In my opinion, that decision wasn’t correct, so we have to live with it.”
Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “Ten minutes 24 seconds my analyst said. Six went up and how they got six I’ll never know, but to get over 10 minutes, it’s sad I think, sad that the officials don’t have to come out and face the questions. It’s really sad for me that the officials can’t come out and stand in front of you and tell you where he got the time from. I find it personally embarrassing for the officials, it’s ridiculous and it’s really sad for football.”
