Coventry City produced a remarkable comeback in one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Championship. They went two goals behind in the first half as they were thoroughly outplayed by Blackburn. Joe Rothwell scored his first goal of the season before Sam Gallagher doubled the home side’s advantage with a neat finish. Tyler Walker halved the deficit before leveling the scores in the 68th minute thanks to an own goal by Thomas Kaminski.
Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “I thought it was a good game of football. We have to totally respect what Coventry has achieved this season and how good a team they are. They’ve got good individual footballers, we were aware of that, and we were trying to find a way to win the game.” he added. “I think ultimately we shot ourselves in the foot, to be honest. I think we got into a position where the game should have been won, and yet some pretty basic errors led to their first goal and then, kicking to their own fans, you’d have to say gave them a lift.”
Coventry’s Mark Robins: “First half, it was too far away from what we expect and what we’re used to. We were just a little bit reluctant to go and engage, which meant we weren’t in the right positions when we got the ball, so we were giving the ball away too often. Misplaced passes from both teams, but in the early stages, and even before the first goal, there wasn’t much between the two teams. They ended up getting a goal which was, from our perspective, really poor.”
