Match Reports

REPORT: Coventry City 2-0 Maidenhead United - Ponticelli brace sees the Sky Blues through to the next round

Two from Jordan Ponticelli put City in the hat for Round Two...

5 November 2017

Two goals from Jordan Ponticelli was enough to send the Sky Blues through to the second round of the FA Cup after a 2-0 win over Maidenhead United.

Jack Grimmer and Jodi Jones both chipped in with the assists on what was a comfortable afternoon for the home side.

The Sky Blues were presented with a golden opportunity to take the lead after just ten minutes.

Carl Pentney in the Maidenhead goal, scuffed his clearance straight into the path of Ponticelli who found Marc McNulty in the area with defenders scrambling back to clear off the line and it was Jake Goodman who hooked it clear.

McNulty was looking confident after scoring the opener last weekend and fired a thunderous effort just off the top of the crossbar from range. 

City had the laead after half an hour. Jack Grimmer, who had been the stand-out player all afternoon raced down the right channel before cutting inside and finding Ponticelli on the penalty spot, in enough space for him to curl the ball into the far top corner.

Mark Robins' side doubled their lead just before half time. Jodi Jones skipped a number of Maidenhead challenges before making the most of a defensive error to find Ponticelli in space again to fire home his and the Sky Blues' second of the afternoon.

Half time saw the introdction of Max Biamou in place of Peter Vincenti, and the Frenchman foudn Jones in on goal almost straight away but the former Dagenham man was unlucky not to see his cut back find its way to the on-rushing McNulty.

McNulty appeared desperate to get on the scoresheet all afternoon, and did well to rise to Jones' cross on the hour mark but the former Pompey man headed just over.

Magpies striker Adrian Clifton found himself with Maidenhead's best chance of the afternoon with twenty minutes to go. The forward charged in on goal but sent his effort high over the bar from a tight angle.
