REWIND: Fleetwood Town 0-1 Coventry City - A last minute own goal gave City all three points at Highbury

26 February 2016

Just as it looked as though the home side would earn a point, Wood turned the ball into his own net to give City a vital three points...

Ahead of the Fleetwood Town visit to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, we revisited October's trip to Highbury Stadium. 

A last-minute own goal by former Sky Blue defender, Richard Wood spoiled Steven Pressley's first game as Fleetwood Town manager earlier this season.

Academy graduate, George Thomas's shot was blocked by goalkeeper Chris Maxwell but the rebound hit Wood and trickled over the line.

Forwards, Jacob Murphy and Marc Antoine-Fortune had good chances for City, but Fleetwood looked to have done enough for a draw until the late drama.
