13 May 2015

Despite the disappointing season, relive some of the highlights from our best games here!

While this season may not have gone totally according to plan for Coventry City, there have been some memorable games for City in League One this season.

Here are our top five from the 2014/15 campaign with highlights below! 

GAME 1.) vs Gilllingham (H) 1-0

The Ricoh return was one of the most memorable games in the club’s history as 27,306 fans welcomed the Sky Blues back from their long exile to Northampton. 503 days since their last game at the Ricoh, City won the game with a goal inside ten minutes, as Conor Thomas played a neat ball down the left channel to Ryan Haynes, who pulled back to allow Frank Nouble to slide it into the corner left-footed from 12 yards. The roar when the ball crossed the line was deafening and it has to be up there with the best atmospheres the club has ever experienced.
GAME 2.) vs Peterborough (H) 3-2
Finding themselves 2-0 down before half-time, the Sky Blues looked dead and buried and were on course for a fourth consecutive League One defeat. But City were handed a lifeline just four minutes after the break when John Fleck played in Ryan Haynes on the overlap - and he picked his spot with a wonderful curling shot inside the left post. City were then level in the blink of an eye as Haynes crossed from the left, Fleck flicked the ball on and Jim O'Brien arrived at the far post for his first of the season. Frank Nouble then completed the amazing come-back with a deflected effort in one of City’s highlights of the season.
GAME 3.) vs Walsall (A) 0-2
A Midlands derby is always a feisty occasion and this was no different. 1,772 Sky Blues fans made the short trip and produced a raucous atmosphere as they took an early lead via the club’s goal of the season. After Marcus Tudgay’s early penalty miss, Jim O’Brien smashed City ahead with a stunning 30-yard effort. Tudgay then notched his first goal for the club with a late header to seal a great away day for the City faithful.
GAME 4.) vs Chesterfield (A) 2-3
The Sky Blues beat play-off semi-finalists Chesterfield in a wonderful display at the Proact Stadium. Tony Mowbray’s first away game in charge saw him pick up his first win as Sky Blues manager and it was a memorable day as Marcus Tudgay gave City the lead with a stunning header after just nine minutes. Jay O’Shea netted a deflected equaliser for the hosts, before substitute Sanmi Odelusi diverted in Grant Ward’s cross shot. Frank Nouble then robbed Ritchie Humphries on the half-way line and steamed towards the area to finish one-on-one. Chesterfield set up a tense finish when Gboly Ariyibi slotted home but the Sky Blues recorded one of their best wins of the season against the team that finished League One in sixth place.
GAME 5.) vs Crawley (A) 1-2
It was the tense League One finale but the Sky Blues rounded off a disappointing season with survival on the final day. After Nick Proschwitz’s first-half penalty miss, Mathias Pogba gave Crawley the lead to jangle plenty of Sky Blue nerves. But Marcus Tudgay scored a crucial header from Jim O’Brien’s wonderful cross to all but secure City’s survival. But the Cov Kid James Maddison gave City the three points with a well taken finish as the Sky Blues extended their unbeaten run away from home to six, winning five of them, to cap off the season in solid fashion.
