Chesterfield 1-1 Coventry City – League 1

CFCCov1

Chesterfield came within moments of a first league victory since October in Danny Wilson’s first game in charge of the Spireites.

Lee Novak’s glancing header had given the struggling Spireites a first half lead against promotion-chasing Coventry City.

The hosts held on valiantly and this goal looked to be enough for the three points until James Maddison salvaged a draw with a superb free-kick in the 89th minute.

Despite the late disappointment, new boss Wilson was in high spirits after the game – speaking of both his pride at taking the role and delight with the positive performance.

Chesterfield’s second ever visit to the Ricoh Arena ended in defeat as Adam Armstrong’s second half goal handed Coventry City a deserved victory.

A goalless first half saw the hosts be largely dominant, coming close on a couple of occasions, while the Spireites rarely threatened despite some long spells of possession.

Coventry finally found a breakthrough just five minutes into the second period courtesy of a low strike from Armstrong, already his sixth goal of the campaign.

The Spireites rarely looked like forcing a comeback, despite having a Sylvan Ebanks-Blake goal ruled out for offside shortly after the hour, and in truth it could’ve been more in the end as the Sky Blues ran out 1-0 victors.

Chesterfield took a major blow to their play off dreams with a 3-2 defeat to strugglers Coventry City on Saturday 14th March 2015.

Despite finding the net in either half courtesy of Jay O’Shea and late substitute Gboly Ariyibi, the Spireites fell to a third home defeat out of four as Marcus Tudgay, Sanmi Odelusi and Frank Nouble all scored for the Sky Blues in an entertaining encounter.

It was a day of firsts for Coventry, who picked up their first victory under experienced new manager Tony Mowbray on their first ever visit to the Proact Stadium.
