Coventry picked up all three points despite going down to 10 men in one of the high scoring football scores of the weekend in the Championship. All the action in the game started in first-half stoppage time when Ian Mattsen was sent off. Chris Martin stepped up and dispatched the penalty to help the visitors take a lead into half-time. Matty Godden equalized just after the break before Andreas Weimann once again put the visitors in front. Callum O’Hare scored his first goal of the season before Godden scored his second of the game to seal a dramatic win.
Coventry’s Mark Robins: “It’s a phenomenal, phenomenal performance and a fantastic result at the end of it. Second half we were talking about not being out of the game and making sure they knew we could win the game. They were in good spirits and they were really brave, stuck at it, and grew into the game with quality.” he added. “The fact Liam Kelly came on shored us up and gave us scope to get Callum (O’Hare) and Ben (Sheaf) higher up the field. When it got back to 2-2 we said, ‘Don’t consolidate, let’s go for the jugular and see if we can get something.”
Bristol City assistant Curtis Fleming: “At the moment it’s a bit of anger, a bit staggered. Probably a little bit raw, so you’re trying to keep the emotions inside, but the emotions came out in the dressing room after the game. For me, it was disappointing because we were 2-1 up against 10. We can talk about age and inexperience but it doesn’t matter.”
