CLASSICS: Sky Blues 1-0 West Bromwich Albion

Viktor Gyökeres scored from the spot when the two sides met back in December...

We take a look back at the last time the Sky Blues met West Bromwich Albion, at the Coventry Building Society Arena earlier this season...

During the final month of 2022, the Sky Blues welcomed West Brom to Coventry for a rearranged Championship fixture.

A last-minute penalty from SkyBet Championship top goalscorer Viktor Gyökeres earned the Sky Blues a 1-0 win in dramatic fashion

The Sky Blues were in the ascendancy from the off and came close to an opener when Gustavo Hamer clipped the post from an in-swinging corner.

City looked to be heading towards a second consecutive draw before a late run saw Gyökeres draw a foul in the penalty area, from which he stepped up from the spot and dispatched for a classic late Sky Blues winner.
