ACADEMY: Sky Blues 5-0 Millwall

City produced dominant display to secure the points against Millwall...

26 April 2021

Coventry City’s U18s ran rampant this past weekend, as they beat Millwall 5-0 at the Alan Higgs Centre.

The Sky Blues dominated the early moments of the fixture looking comfortable as more of their regular personnel had returned from the previous week.

City moved the ball freely and although Millwall looked quick on the break, they offered no real threat to Luke Bell and the Coventry goal.

And it was just after 35 minutes where the Sky Blues were rewarded for their pressure as one of two Trialists broke through the defensive line with the ball at his feet before slotting it past the ‘keeper.

After the first goal, the visitors went flat. They never really looked like troubling the Coventry backline and were in for a tough second half.

The onslaught started minutes after the half-time break with Ryan Howley, whose effort from the edge of the box found its way into the back of the net.

Two became three just after the 60th minute as the Trialist grabbed his second of the game. This time his tidy footwork and drop of the shoulder allowed him to beat the defender and slot the ball in the bottom corner.

A minute later and Harrison Nee made it 4-0 to the young Sky Blues after he rounded the ‘keeper and fired the ball into an empty net.

Nee grabbed his second and his sides fifth 18 minutes from time as he bids to keep his top scorer hopes alive. A quick counter-attacking move was finished off by Nee who rounded the keeper a second time before tapping it home from close range.
