Sky Blue season highlights: Wolves (h)

Sky Blue season highlights: Wolves (h)

Kickstarting Coventry City's best month of the season was a well-deserved win against league leaders Wolves at the beginning of February in a game that saved its most dramatic moment for the very last seconds.

Michael Doyle deservedly gave the Sky Blues a first-half lead but Wolves came out a different side after the break and when Sam Vokes equalised, home fans feared ending up with nothing.

Leon McKenzie however enjoyed a rare highlight in another injury-hit season by responding immediately with what turned out to be the winning goal.

That is was the winner was thanks to Kieren Westwood, City's highly-rated goalkeeper, who was mobbed by his team-mates after saving an injury-time penalty from Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

'When you think you are about to have the result taken away from you, it makes it so much sweeter when you win,' said Chris Coleman afterwards.

'Had we drawn the game it wouldn't have been my players' fault, it would have been the referee's, because it's not a penalty.'

Opposite number Mick McCarthy commented: 'I think we deserved to get out of jail for our second half performance but we didn't deserve to get out of jail for the way we defended.

'We are letting goals in far too easily and if we continue to do that we won't progress any further.'
