With Peterborough ahead in the game 2-1 at Coventry this afternoon with just 10 minutes to go it took goals in the 80th and a fanstic winner in the 87th minute from Newcastle´s Adam Armstrong to preserve Coventry’s unbeaten home record this season.
Tony Mowbray and Adam Armstrong celebrate
Adam slotted home into an empty after Murphy had set the Newcastle man up nicely and then with just three minutes to go, Adam scored his 10th goal of the season when he beat two men in the box and hammered the ball into the back of the net with his left foot for a tremendous winner.

This is what Coventry manager Tony Mowbray said after the game:
“We always knew it was going to be an open game; we knew it was a very dangerous game.”
“It ebbed and flowed a little bit, and they’re a very very good team. Maybe they couldn’t sustain that high intensity. The second half: what can you say?
“The supporters dragged the team along, we attacked with purpose, and Armstrong’s second goal – if any player in the world scored that – we would be eulogizing that.”
“I’m delighted for the fans to see the team play with the heart they showed in the second half, and I’m delighted for the players as well. Hopefully everyone’s going home happy.”
Come to think of it Adam´s second goal is exactly what we needed against Stoke today at St. James’ Park to break the deadlock.
The win takes Coventry up to 4th place with 28 points from 15 games just 4 points behind second-placed Burton and an automatic promotion place.
And that´s now 10 goals for Adam Armstrong this season and it keeps him at the top of the League One goalscoring charts.
He´s doing great on loan this season – keep it up Adam.
