Coventry Battle Back to Hold Watford to a Draw


Coventry had trailed Watford 2-0 at half time, but battled back and held on for a draw. With this result, Coventry climb to ninth place, three points off the playoff places.

It was an impressive performance that demonstrated a desire to win, along with plenty of character and spirit. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to secure the crucial victory that has been sorely needed for so long.

First Half

After an impressive opening 20 minutes, Coventry found themselves on the back foot for much of the match as they failed to capitalize on mismatches between their back three and Watford's wing-backs. This was especially true when Coventry were attacking through their central midfielders.

In the 57th minute, Coventry were given a chance to level things up. Matt Godden struck an exquisite curling effort that nestled inside the far post.

However, the Sky Blues' efforts were short lived as in the 58th minute Ben Sheaf scored an equaliser. After Viktor Gyokeres had been tripped up by Leandro Bacuna, Sheaf's strike proved crucial as neither team managed a winner in extra time.

In the second half, both teams had several chances to score but Coventry made history with Mollie Green's remarkable free-kick goal - likely going down as one of the greatest free-kick goals ever scored. It will surely go down in history as one of the great free-kick goals ever scored.

Second Half

In the second half, Coventry battled back from being two goals down to earn a point. Matthew Godden and Ben Sheaf both netted goals in injury time for the Sky Blues who remain three points adrift of the top six with five games left to play.

In the opening half, Coventry were clearly the superior side in midfield, showing off their steadiness and discipline that had been developing over recent weeks. This proved crucial to their defensive improvement, restricting what work the Hornets' attack had to do and demanding intricate quality that would expose Coventry's defence in attack.

Before the break, Watford came close to doubling their advantage with Louza finding space in the box and unleashing a half-volley that beat Wilson in goal but was blocked by a Coventry shirt. The Hornets had several chances to extend their lead as Lansbury missed an open goal from close range while Bryan fired wide with his powerful shot after John Eustace had headed a cross back to him from Cowie.

Third Half

For a while, the Sky Blues looked to have lost but ultimately managed to come from behind and secure a point against Watford. Pedro and Imran Louza scored first-half goals to give Watford an early two goal advantage; however Matthew Godden and Ben Sheaf struck late in the second half to salvage a draw.

Coventry were in a precarious position, three points off the play-off places. Although their performance had improved considerably since their previous defeat, there is still much work to be done.

Just before the hour mark, Godden's stunning curling effort reduced the deficit to one.

In the second half, things became much more open and Sheaf had several chances to level the scoreline but couldn't quite convert any of them. Although their attack failed to create much else, Hornets kept pressing away while still finding it difficult to break down a home side who were still in control.

Final Score

Joao Pedro fired Watford off to an incredible start, going ahead 2-0 early in the first half. However, Coventry came back with second-half goals from Matty Godden and Ben Sheaf to earn them a share of the spoils with five games remaining. With these results, Coventry remain three points adrift of promotion while Watford are six points off top six with five matches left to play.

From the opening minute, Pedro sent Britt Assombalonga racing down the left flank and cut inside Kyle McFadzean to fire past Ben Wilson. Unfortunately, Assombalonga suffered a hamstring injury which is likely to keep him out for the remainder of the season.

After the break, Hamer continued his assault on goalkeeper Ben Wilson as they searched for a winner. Sheaf eventually turned home a close range shot to secure a 2-2 draw that did not dent their play-off hopes.
