Coventry City came back from two goals down to produce one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Championship. Kristian Pederson opened the scoring in the 12th minute before Gary Gardner doubled their lead in the 39th minute. Ben Sheaf pulled one back for the visitors in the 40th minute before equalizing in the fourth minute of first-half stoppage time. Michael Rose put them ahead in the 71st minute before Callum O’Hare sealed the three points in the 90th minute.
Coventry’s Mark Robins: “We’ve got a situation now where nobody believes outside of the club that we can get near it (the playoffs). There are teams that are in better positions than us but we’ve got four games to go and we’re in with a sniff. That’s the biggest thing for me. In terms of what we’ve been able to achieve in five years is nothing short of outstanding. That’s the pressure that you want and at some point, you have to have that pressure that makes you feel alive. We’ve got nothing to lose so let’s have a go.”
Birmingham Lee Bowyer: “We started really well. We were on the better side and we were cruising. We think the game has become too easy and let them back in. We needed to manage the game better towards the end of the first half but we didn’t. Going in at half-time 2-2 was tough to take. I put it down to being too soft. You can’t concede three set-pieces in one game. That’s not good enough. You’ve got to take pride in keeping the ball out of your net, it’s quite simple really. For some reason today, we were soft and that’s not like us. We had chances. I don’t think there was much in the game.”
