Amadou Bakayoko’s late brace handed Coventry City a wildly-celebrated win at The Valley on Saturday afternoon, the Sky Blues coming from a goal down to stun Charlton Athletic
“To stick in the game and then take our chances the way we did, at the end of the game, was fantastic for us and they are three really, really good points for us,” said Mark Robins after the game.
A feature of the Sky Blues under Robins’ management has been pulling out vital wins to stop small runs of poor results becoming anything more.
Had Charlton maintained their advantage it would have been just one point from a possible 12 but instead City are comfortably in mid-table ahead of Saturday’s visit from Wycombe Wanderers.
The two sides will be familiar with each other after two contrasting but hard-fought matches last season, City winning 3-2 on a Friday night at the Ricoh Arena before a 1-0 success on a freezing night in Buckinghamshire that ended a run of poor league results and set Robins’ team back on the path towards a play-off place.
Striker Adebayo Akinfenwa very much remains the focal point of the Chairboys side and comes into the game in good form with three goals in as many matches including in the weekend win against Burton Albion.
