Andy Turner's Coventry City player ratings as Sky Blues' winless run continues

Coventry City extended their winless run to five Championship games as automatic promotion chasing Ipswich took the full three points to edge themselves closer to the Premier League.

The Sky Blues looked good going forward in an entertaining game but suffered an early set-back when Kieffer Moore drilled home from a Wes Burns’ pull back as early as the eighth minute. The home side enjoyed a good spell for the remainder of the half when Haji Wright was denied by a brilliant reaction save from the keeper as the striker looked favourite to equalise.

The USA striker, however, did manage to find the back of the net when played through in the box by Kasey Palmer just after the hour, leaving Wright to drill home past the keeper to pull City back on level terms. But the visitors were back in front five minutes later when dreadful defending allowed Cameron Burgess to squeeze the ball home at the near post in the 69th minute.

Coventry pushed for a second equaliser as the game ran into 11 minutes of stoppage time but despite their best efforts just couldn’t find a way through.

Exposed for the first goal when the unmarked Moore picked his spot from inside the box. Made a superb save with his boot to deny Nathan Broadhead on the stroke of half-time at his far post. Pulled off two brilliant saves in quick succession after the break but was then beaten at his near post for Town’s second goal.


Displayed excellent pace on the counter attack where he linked up well with Eccles down the right flank. Had a decent game, helping City get up the pitch well. Got back to defend well, including a brilliant tackle to stop Davis late on.


Read the game well and defended well for the most part and had a good battle with Moore, getting physical with the big centre-forward who he dragged to the ground early in the second half.


Filled in for the suspended Liam Kitching at left sided centre-back but unable to get a block as he got a touch to Moore’s shot for the opening goal. Bit of a mis-match in height when attempting to mark Moore at one corner in the first half. Quick on his feet in the box but failed to clear to allow Burgess to somehow squeeze his shot in past Collins at his hear post. Forced off injured five minutes from regular time.


Struggled to contain lively wide man Wes Burns who got the better of him when Hutchinson played him through to the byline to pull back for Moore to score the early Ipswich goal but regained his composure


Made a welcome return to the starting line-up after sitting out at Blackburn with a muscle injury and went close with a terrific effort that went just wide of the angle of the goal. Involved in most of City’s encouraging approach play in the first half.


Did a decent job in one of the holding roles and got forward well to support attacks in a typically solid display from the skipper in what is almost certainly his penultimate game for the club. Got a foot in time and time again to help win back the ball in tight areas.


Deployed out of position out wide on the right of a forward three, the versatile midfielder got forward well to provide a decent outlet while also pressing well to force mistakes. Played a lovely ball in for Simms, only for the striker to lift over the bar. Decent shift overall.


Showed some nice touches and played some decent passes, most notably to set up Sheaf for a decent attempt and unlucky with a blocked effort on the half hour mark. Played a lovely ball in for Haji to score.


Stretched Town’s defence with his pace early on with a couple of decent runs in behind but lacked strength at times against Town’s defenders who had the measure of him on occasions. Denied by a brilliant reaction save by the keeper just after the half hour mark. Drilled home a superb equaliser just after the hour. Make some excellent runs and beat his man as the game went on with City pushing for a second equaliser.


Put himself about and worked hard in a frustrating first half when he had two decent chances, the first he hit over the bar with a heavy first touch and the second he lifted over again as he muscled his way through to shoot from the edge of the box.
