MATCH REPORT: Coventry City 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday - City miss good chances in stalemate at Liberty Way

The Sky Blues drew 0-0 but had the better chances to win the game against Wednesday...

Coventry City Under-21s drew 0-0 against Sheffield Wednesday at Nuneaton Town's Liberty Way. 

The Sky Blues had the better chances as Blair Turgott and Simeon Jackson both missed from close range in either half but City could not break Wednesday down.

The visitors came close on 23 minutes when the Sheffield Wednesday trialist hit a sweet half-volley from 25-yards which whizzed narrowly past Reice Charles-Cook's left post.

Turgott then stung the palms of Joe Mindsmith with a vicious effort after he cut inside from the left and from the resulting corner, City were almost gifted a goal as defender Lewis Buxton headed inches wide of his own goal.

City then should have had then had the lead before the break when Jackson crossed for George Thomas whose clever flick found Turgott in acres of space at the back-post, but the ball bobbled which caused the winger to smash the ball well over from what looked a certain goal.

That was the last of the first-half but the Sky Blues continued to have the better of the play in the second.

Jordan Willis completed just over an hour in his first game back since injury as he was replaced by Dion Kelly-Evans and shortly after Jackson should have opened the scoring. Trialist's ball from deep released the Canadian one-on-one but he fluffed his effort wide inside the area.

That was the last action of a rather uneventful game in Nuneaton and a game that City will feel they should have taken three points from.
