Todd Kane scored an equalizer with the last kick of the game as Coventry produced one of the comeback football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Jaidon Anthony put the home side in front when he fluked a goal on the stroke of half-time. Philip Billing doubled their lead in the second half before Jefferson Lerma was sent off. With five minutes to spare, Matt Godden grabbed a goal back to give the visitors hope before Kane scored with the last kick of the game.
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “The red card definitely changes the game. There isn’t much I can say apart from how devastated I am for the team because for 70 minutes we were in control. With 11 men we dominated the game in every aspect of our play and then the sending-off changes it a lot and we haven’t managed to hold on. I’m gutted for the players. Football has a habit of kicking you in the bits where you don’t want it and today that happened for us.”
Coventry’s Mark Robins: “I thought it was a good game. They are brilliant and you have to be really careful. The sending-off was a turning point. When it happened it just made things a little clearer in terms of how we could attack them and get back into the game.” he added. “Matty’s goal gave us a little bit of impetus and belief. We know they are a really top team so to get back into the game regardless of the circumstances is really impressive – to keep believing to the 95th minute is a credit to them.”
