Coventry got their playoff hopes back on track winning their first game in the last seven as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Gustavo Hamer opened the scoring in the 15th minute before Matt Gooden doubled their advantage in the 25th minute. Jorge Grant pulled one back for the visitors in the 37th minute but Gooden sealed the three points in stoppage time after Nathan Thompson put the ball into his own net.
Peterborough assistant Matthew Etherington: “The players and the staff are down but Coventry were the better side and fully deserved to win. We didn’t do well enough, particularly in transition, where Coventry was so much more aggressive than us. The first two goals that we conceded were poor at this level, but we got a goal back and looked better after changing shape. The manager said at half-time we had given ourselves an opportunity to get something from the game.”
Coventry’s Mark Robins: “I like it because it’s tough to come here and play. Other teams have found it difficult. Whenever you play Darren’s sides, they test you all the time. They always throw numbers forward and they’ve got a lot of paces. They’ve had some brilliant results here. They’re a different kettle of fish at home than they are away. We’ve caught them on a day where we’ve been somewhere where we need to be, which is great to see.”
