REPORT: Stoke City 0-2 Sky Blues

The Sky Blues run out 2-0 victors with goals from Jamie Allen and Gustavo Hamer...

22 October 2022

Coventry City have recorded their third consecutive victory in the Championship, beating Stoke City 2-0 at the bet365 Stadium.

Jamie Allen and Gustavo Hamer were on target for Mark Robins' side, with Hamer's goal an early contender for the club's Goal of the Season award.

The win lifts City to 22nd, just four points behind the table's top half.

The Sky Blues broke away first through Kasey Palmer whose slide rule pass found Viktor Gyokeres, but the Swede’s strike was blocked by Ben Wilmot.

This prompted a response from the hosts who were denied by the woodwork as Phil Jagielka’s glancing header evaded the reach of Ben Wilson.

The Potters’ skipper Lewis Baker carved open the game’s next chance, skipping past his marker and curling and effort narrowly past the post.

Tariqe Fosu continued the home side’s early scout for a goal as he cut in from the wing and fired back across goal, but he was also unable to challenge Wilson in net

HALF-TIME: Stoke City 0-0 Sky Blues

Second half proceedings got under way with a quick-fire double chance for Dwight Gayle whose initial effort was blocked before his second was smothered for Wilson for a routine save.

After defending solidly in the opening 45 minutes, the Sky Blues got their reward when Jamie Allen latched onto Gustavo Hamer’s pass and lifted the ball over Joe Bursik to break give City the lead. 

The Sky Blues remained on top after breaking the deadlock and extended their advantage to two goals when Gustavo Hamer produced a moment of magic, linking up with Palmer, jinking past his man and setting sail for the top corner.
