Bassala Sambou's goal in the final minute of the season seals the win against the Terriers...

Coventry City Under-18s won their final game of the season against league-leaders Huddersfield Town in a dramatic game at the Alan Higgs Centre.

The Sky Blues were beaten 2-1 at Derby County in midweek, despite dominating much of the play, and were looking to bounce back against the Terriers.

The home side went behind in the early stages but were level at the break thanks to a goal from Luke Bromley.

City went ahead after the break when Ryan Smith was fouled in the area and he stepped to see his penalty saved, but he followed up the rebound to put the Sky Blues 2-1 ahead.

The Terriers found an equaliser but City won the game in the last minute of the Under-18s season thanks to a Bassala Sambou strike to seal an impressive three points for the young side.


Coventry City Under-18s: Gott (GK), Smith, Maycock, Bromley, Di. Kelly-Evans, Finch, Quinn, Dev. Kelly-Evans, Shipley, Thomas, Sambou.
