REPORT: Coventry City training ground match ends 5-2 with classy goals from Devon Kelly-Evans and Aaron Phillips

17 July 2015

The behind-closed-doors proves a great exercise for the Sky Blues squad who take another step towards fitness...

An intense 11v11 match was played out at Ryton training ground as another step towards match fitness was taken.

The match ended with a 5-2 scoreline in the 70-minute match which included some great strikes from Devon Kelly-Evans and Aaron Phillips.

Chris Stokes headed home within the first five minutes before Jack Finch found the net, following up a double save from Reice Charles-Cook, to put their side into a two-goal lead.

Just past the half-hour, Romain Vincelot, who covered 9km in the game, headed home a James Maddison corner before Devon Kelly-Evans ran at the defence, turned past three and fired an incredible shot home to make it 2-2.

Just after half-time, Maddison turned the ball home after a great move down the right involving Vincelot and Marcus Tudgay before Aaron Phillips slammed the ball home in the 61st minute, after a corner wasn't cleared.

In the final kick of the game, the substitute trialist raced through to slot the ball past Lee Burge to complete the game and the scoreline.

It turned out to be a valuable fitness exercise for the squad who averaged the same distance as a normal pre-season game, thanks to the data from the StatSports equipment.
