Coventry City came away with a point in a closely contested Championship match against Bristol City. The Sky Blues‘ substitute Ellis Simms scored a late equalizer to salvage the draw. Tatsuhiro Sakamoto had given Coventry the lead, but Rob Dickie headed in the equalizer just before halftime. Nahki Wells then put Bristol City in the lead, but Simms came to the rescue and leveled the score.
The draw sees Coventry City maintain their position in the final play-off spot, one point ahead of Sunderland. Bristol City, on the other hand, remain in 13th place in the league. Liam Manning‘s side, without a league win since Boxing Day, made a bright start with efforts from Jason Knight and Taylor Gardner-Hickman.
Coventry City suffered an early setback when their captain Ben Sheaf had to be substituted due to injury. However, they managed to find their rhythm and took the lead through Tatsuhiro Sakamoto. Bristol City responded just before halftime with Rob Dickie’s well-placed header.
Both teams had opportunities in the second half, but it was Bristol City who took the lead when Nahki Wells capitalized on a loose ball in the box. However, Coventry City quickly equalized through Ellis Simms, who pounced on a rebound after Max O’Leary could only parry Liam Kitching‘s shot.
Both sides had chances to win the game, with O’Leary denying Simms a second goal and Collins making a crucial save from Harry Cornick’s deflected shot. The match ended in a draw, with Coventry City extending their unbeaten run and Bristol City showing promise despite the disappointment of conceding a late equalizer.
Coventry manager Mark Robins praised Simms’ goal and highlighted the importance of staying unbeaten. Bristol City head coach Liam Manning acknowledged his team’s progress but emphasized the need for more ruthlessness in converting dominance into goals.
