A young Sky Blues side suffer defeat...

24 October 2023

A young Sky Blues Under-21s side suffered defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in Professional Development League action at the Alan Higgs Centre.

The visitors took the lead with their first attack after just 90 seconds. A ball across the face of goal was tapped in at the back post by Luke Cook, leaving Luke Bell with no chance.

Cook had another chance on the turn inside of the area moments later, but he couldn’t direct his effort on target, as his shot flew over the bar.

At the other end, a great move from City ended with Evan Eghosa sliding the ball through for Aidan Dausch, but after an excellent first touch, the strikers shot was blocked on its way through to goal.

The Owls doubled their lead in the 19th minute when Sean Fusire raced through on goal and dispatched the ball past Bell.

The Sky Blues had their best chance of getting back into the game just before the half hour mark, but Dausch, who found space, fired his shot wide of goal.

It was 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday minutes later and it was a second for Luke Cook, who again found space before finishing the ball into the back of the net.

HALF-TIME: Sky Blues 0-3 Sheffield Wednesday After the restart, Sheffield Wednesday went closing to adding a fourth and Cook his hat-trick, but he fired over from close range.

City almost got themselves back into the game through a corner which was glanced on by Trialist into the path of Josh Gordon, but his header was kept out.

However, the Owls made it 4-0 in the 62nd minute when a long ball over the top was controlled by Bailey Cadamarteri before he found the bottom corner.

MacKenzie Stretton had some joy down the left-hand-side, beating his man and unleashing a powerful strike, which the Owls ‘keeper saved.
