Coventry comeback stuns Millwall as Wright scores twice


Coventry got back to winning ways and returned to the Championship play-off places after coming from behind to beat Millwall 2-1.

The Sky Blues’ impressive 10-match unbeaten run had been ended by Norwich eight days earlier and the threat of a second defeat in succession lingered for more than an hour after 18-year-old Romain Esse had slammed home for Millwall on only his second league start of the season.

But, in the space of three second-half minutes, Haji Wright coolly rolled in a penalty and then beat Lions goalkeeper Matija Sarkic at his near post to turn the game in the Coventry’s favour.

They move level on points with, but also above of, Sunderland into sixth in the table with 15 games to play, while Millwall stay 18th, with a gap of only four points between themselves and the relegation zone.
