Sunday Special

Sunday Special

Only two games were played today. The first games of the day was at the Ricoh Arena with Coventry taking on Stevenage at 13:15.
Coventry took an early lead though McGoldrick, his first goal of the season, but this lead was only to last 10 minutes when Shroot equalised for Stevenage. It was then left for substitute Marcus Haber to score the winner with his first goal for Stevenage.
The result means Stevenage climb to 3rd and keep their unbeaten start in the league. They have a 100% away record with 3 wins out if 3. Coventry however have now slipped 20th and with no win in the league so far really need to find a new manager or this could be a long season indeed.

The second game of the day was at relative league newcomers Crawley. They took on a Portsmouth team who are still unsure if they will finish the season or not.
Crawley may have just edged the first half but the game really turned when they where first reduced to 10 men just before half time then went down to 9 men midway through the secon half. Pompey pressed on with a 2 man advantage and with goals from Harris, Rodgers and McLeod in the last 15 mins sealed a 3-0 away win.
Crawley had a chance to go top but with Portsmouths first win of the season saw them slip to 6th and Portsmouth jump to 16th.
