Football Results: Coventry 1-1 Derby County

Football Results

Graeme Shinnie scored a late equalizer to earn a point in one of the low-scoring football results of the weekend in the Championship. The draw was the first point dropped by Coventry at home all season. The hosts dominated the first half and were rewarded when Matt Goddeh dispatched a penalty. They held onto the lead for an hour before Shinnie scored. It was the fourth draw in a row for Derby while the hosts are now winless in three following their loss to Preston a couple of weeks back.

Managers Reaction

Coventry’s Mark Robins: “I’ve got to be happy after the week we’ve had. The game always starts to throw up strange results after three-game weeks. It’s a point we’ve got to be happy with, they’ve had the extra day’s rest. The players deserve an awful amount of credit and off the back of that the energy that the crowd gives us, almost 24,000 in the stadium today which is phenomenal, we really tried to win it but in trying to win it you can be open, and that almost happened a couple of times.”

Derby assistant Liam Rosenior: “I think these are the best team we’ve played this season. I think they’re outstanding at what they do and they’ve got an outstanding home record which gives them confidence. It was really important for Wayne and myself that we got in at 1-0 and then we can adjust and change things. The players have to believe in how good they are.”
