Despite a slow start, Coventry found themselves behind to a Romain Esse deflected strike in the first half. However, a strong second-half performance, led by Wright, turned the game in the hosts’ favor.
Wright equalized from the penalty spot in the 67th minute after being brought down by Tanganga. Just three minutes later, he struck again with a clinical finish to secure all three points for Mark Robins‘ side.
The win propels Coventry City into the Championship top six, showcasing their resilience and attacking prowess. This victory marked their ascent up the league table in an impressive manner.
