Ghana's No. 1

Leaders Reading beaten at Coventry

Published on: 30 October 2020

Reading had not been behind in the Championship this season before their trip to Coventry

Leaders Reading fell to their first Championship defeat of the season as Coventry picked up their first league victory in seven attempts at St Andrew's.

Royals top scorer Lucas Joao uncharacteristically fluffed his lines when in on goal before Coventry led through Gustavo Hamer's classy side-footed finish from outside the area.

Portugal forward Joao held off a home defender to steer home a fine Reading leveller from 20 yards, but the Sky Blues went ahead again when Matt Godden pounced on a rebound moments after strike partner Max Biamou hit the bar with a golden chance inside the six-yard box.

Coventry extended their advantage with Sam McCallum's 30-yard strike - which beat an uncertain-looking Rafael in the Reading goal - and Veljko Paunovic's side left empty-handed despite George Puscas netting in stoppage time.
