REPORT: Sky Blues Under 23s progress in the Birmingham Senior Cup

13 October 2021

Coventry City progressed in the Birmingham Senior Cup with a dramatic 2-1 victory at AFC Wulfrunians.

Harrison Nee scored the injury time winner for the ten man Sky Blues to put them into the Second Round of the competition.

Luke Tisdale's City side opened the scoring in the tie in the first-half, when winger Jodi Jones broke the deadlock.

However, the Wolverhampton-based hosts brought the scores level just before the interval when Aaron Bishop scored.

In a competitive game, Cian Tyler had to make some good saves while City enjoyed a number of chances to go in front again and they finally did so in second-half stoppage time.

Despite the Sky Blues being down to ten men after the sending off of Fionn O'Brien just before, City worked a good move down the right hand side and the ball was played into the box for Nee to finish.

Sky Blues Xl: Cian Tyler (GK), Blaine Rowe, George Burroughs, Fionn O'Brien, Jonny Ngandu (C), Marco Rus, Marcel Hilssner, Ricardo Dinanga, Jodi Jones, Wesley Jobello, Fabio Tavares.

Subs: Luke Bell (GK), Talon Shepherd, Shay Young, Aaron Evans-Harriott, Harrison Nee.
