Under-21's unfortunate to lose at Weds

17 September 2012

Coventry narrowly lost at Sheffield thanks to late penalty..

Coventry City Under-21's were narrowly defeated at Sheffield Wednesday despite a Joe Henderson free-kick.

The side conceded early on with Josh Windass finishing well for the home side in the first half.

After the break, Coventry improved and were deservedly level courtesy of a brilliant free-kick from Henderson.

However, late on in the game, City conceded a penalty which Matt Fletcher converted meaning Coventry are still waiting to get their first Under-21 win of the season.

Academy Manager Gregor Rioch commented: "I thought the side battled well today and even though we lost to a late penalty, there are plenty of positives to take out of the game.

"I thought they were excellant and the result wasn't a fair reflection on the 90 minutes. 

"If we can keep to those standards set today, I'm sure results will begin to go for us."
