Coventry City grabbed their second win of the season, and their first away from home last night, with Viktor Gyokeres’ strike moments before half time sealing the three points in Lancashire.
The visitors started strongly against the newly-promoted Championship club, with last year’s Player of the Season, Callum O’Hare, central to everything that The Sky Blues were piecing together.
After a strong first-half showing, Mark Robins’ side had to endure an increasing amount of pressure in the second half, but O’Hare’s relentless pressing and harrying of the ball, was clear for all to see and helped Coventry regain possession.
As the game wore on, Blackpool continued to pile on the pressure, but they were met by a resolute Sky Blues defence, and victory ensured that Coventry pushed up to fourth in the league.
O’Hare has made a strong start to the season and has picked up from where he left off last season.
Quiz: Have Coventry City won or lost more against each of these 25 English teams?
The 23-year-old, who joined permanently from Aston Villa in the summer of last year, spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan with The Sky Blues.
Proving to be a vitally important creative spark within his side, the young midfielder grabbed eight assists last time out and will be hopeful of improving that statistic this season.
Here, we take a look at how some Coventry City fans reacted to Callum O’Hare’s performance against Blackpool…
