TOP FIVE: We review the top five Sky Blue Away Days of the 2015/16 Season

25 May 2016

Beginning with the incredible four goal rout at the Den on day two of the season, we look back on City’s best 2015/16 away results…

The Sky Blues were victorious seven times on the road over the course of 2015/16 season, we feature five of the most memorable Away Days below. 

1. Millwall 0-4 Coventry City
SkyBet League One, Saturday 15th August 2015

Coventry City’s talisman Adam Armstrong scored his second brace in as many league games as City thumped Millwall at the Den. The Newcastle loanee netted either side of a Ruben Lameiras goal, with Jim O’Brien completing the scoring. Armstrong also claimed ‘Goal of the Season’ for his audacious 40-yard chip against Millwall.

2. Crewe 0-5 Coventry City
SkyBet League One, Saturday 2nd January 2016

That man Armstrong was on the mark again as he claimed a first-half hat-trick, while fellow loanee Jacob Murphy scored twice as the Sky Blues demolished Crewe. In-form Armstrong, who was already League One's top scorer, took his tally to 16 Sky Blues goals for the season.

3. Burton Albion 1-2 Coventry City
SkyBet League One, Sunday 6th September 2015

The Sky Blues were forced to come from behind against Albion, with a lively opening 20 minutes witnessing goals from either side. Marcus Tudgay netted the equaliser for City, with Romain Vincelot claiming the winner from close range.

4. Oldham 0-2 Coventry City
SkyBet League One, Sunday 8th May 2016 

The Sky Blues rounded off the season in style, with Armstrong scoring his 20th goal of the season and two of City’s Academy graduates making full senior debuts. Cian Harries stepped in for the injured Aaron Martin at centre-half and Dion Kelly-Evans entered the pitch at half-time, both impressing manager Tony Mowbray. Vincelot and Armstrong claimed City’s final two goals of the 15/16 season and in doing so, ensured the Sky Blues an eighth place League One finish. 

5. Colchester United 1-3 Coventry City
SkyBet League One, Saturday 14th November 2015

Coventry's Jacob Murphy scored twice against former club Colchester as the Sky Blues came from behind again to win. It was Marc-Antoine Fortune who sealed City's victory, with the win taking the Sky Blues up to second in the League One standings.
