Coventry City put up a spectacular away performance as they produced one of the shock football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Michael Rose gave the visitors the lead in the 20th minute before Viktor Gyokeres doubled their advantage in the 24th minute. Bobby Decordova-Reid pulled one back in the 82nd minute before Callum O’Hare sealed the three points in the third minute of stoppage time. The result meant that Fulham still needs two wins to secure its place in the Premier League.

Managers Reaction 

Fulham boss Marco Silva: “At this level it is tough but the winning mentality is about focus, concentration every time and this afternoon we lost the game because of individual mistakes. It was not tactical. All the changes they had came from individual mistakes and when you make these mistakes at this level it’s easy for them to create chances. I don’t see reasons to have more pressure today,” he said. “I don’t feel it. I hope our players don’t feel it either. It is our job, pressure is normal. We have to enjoy it a little bit, embrace the challenge and show the mentality every time, the right mentality at certain moments.

Coventry boss Mark Robins: “Today that was up there with the performances of the season. It was the first time we’ve beaten a top-10 team away from home, never mind a team that is going to be champions, so it should give us confidence and belief. But the way that we played, with bravery, courage, and quality that we showed, we created chances off the quality we showed and we took them. The positioning of our defenders was very good against the top striker in the Championship. We kept them at bay until the 82nd minute and had the confidence to break out again.”
