MISSING MEN: Sky Blues 1-0 QPR - 2008

Can you remember the missing men from a memorable win against the Rs…

26 August 2021

Ahead of City’s trip to the capital to face Queens Park Rangers in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, we take a trip down memory lane and remember a previous victory against our opponents…

City had begun the 2008/09 season well when QPR came to town as 16,718 fans watched on hoping to see the Sky Blues extend their unbeaten run to three games.

Coventry started the match the better and after missing a couple of early opportunities, before the home side won a penalty, with Elliott Ward putting City ahead from the spot after fifteen minutes.

Emmanuel Ledesma had a good opportunity to level for the visitors, but City’s Number One stopped the shot before the R's wasted another good opportunity through Dexter Blackstock.

But Chris Coleman’s men held on for the points, which saw them rise to eighth in the Championship table.

However, what we want to know is how well do you remember the Sky Blues side from that day? Can you name the starting eleven and the substitutes?

You have 10 minutes to name the full matchday squad, good luck!
