Brentford 3 Coventry City 1

Coventry City travelled to West London on Saturday afternoon to face a Brentford side currently gunning for automatic promotion from League One after an impressive season, initially under Uwe Rosler and subsequently with Mark Warburton in charge following Rosler's move to Wigan Athletic.

Sky Blues boss Steven Pressley made two changes from the side that started against Port Vale last Sunday with Franck Moussa and Nathan Delfouneso coming into the side, Chuba Akpom dropping to the bench against the side he briefly played for at the start of 2014.

The visitors made a storming start, Callum Wilson's goal the highlight of ten minutes of pressure but Brentford were handed a potential route back into the game when Carl Baker conceded a penalty. Joe Murphy came to the rescue, however, with a superb save from Alan Judge's spot-kick.

City's respite did not last for long though and Clayton Donaldson levelled the game up on 17 minutes before Marcello Trotta put the hosts in front shortly after.

Wilson in particular continued to cause problems for Brentford but it was the Bees who went in front at the interval.

Wilson was again lively at the start of the second half as City forced a couple of corners but familiar failings soon came to the fore as Alan McCormack gave the home side a 3-1 lead, the Sky Blues goals conceded tally overtaking that of goals scored.

Akpom and Mark Marshall entered the fray but to no avail as the scoreline remained the same leaving Coventry in 17th place in the table and four points above the relegation zone.
