Sno-where to go but down for Sky Blues

Sno-where to go but down for Sky Blues

For the second time in five days Coventry City conceded a goal in injury time to hand Ipswich Town all three points at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Michael Chopra struck in the 95th minute of the game to leave the Sky Blues rock-bottom of the Championship and looking ever more closely at League One football next season.

Chopra had earlier levelled the scores at 2-2 following a spirited City fightback from Emmanuel-Thomas's opener with Clingan and Deegan giving the home side a half-time lead.

Both sides deserved credit for producing an entertaining game in atrocious conditions but that will be of little comfort to Sky Blues' supporters as they trudge away from the stadium.

Andy Thorn was left with little option but to recycle his post-match comments from any number of other matches this season when he said afterwards: "It (late goals against) keeps happening.

"We were on the break and we gave the ball away and I don't know what we are thinking.

"First and foremost you have to make sure you are solid and that you don't make mistakes. I can't tell you why we don't put (the ball) in the corner and the referee blows the whistle."
