Coventry City 1-0 Chesterfield – League 1


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.
