Kyle McFadzean’s last-minute winner gave Coventry a fairytale homecoming after two years away with a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest on the Coventry Constructing Society Enviornment.
The Sky Blues captain fired residence within the 96th minute to offer the hosts victory of their first sport on residence soil since 2019, having spent the final two years as tenants at St Andrew’s in Birmingham.
Forest had appeared like spoiling the occasion in entrance of a house crowd in extra of 20,000 when Lyle Taylor slotted them forward from Brennan Johnson’s low ball simply earlier than half-time.
However Coventry produced a much-improved second-half efficiency and appeared more likely to earn a share of the spoils when Viktor Gyokeres’ powered in an equaliser 9 minutes from time.
With their ultimate chunk of the cherry, the hosts accomplished their turnaround within the final minute of added time, with Dominic Hyam’s header from a free-kick blocked to McFadzean, who squeezed his personal effort previous Brice Samba to spark jubilant scenes on and off the pitch.
Coventry host Northampton City within the first spherical of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night time; kick-off at 7.45pm.
