Late Gyokeres Penalty Earns Point For Coventry
A late Gyokeres penalty earns a point for Coventry, as the midfielder scores his fifth goal of the season. We also look at David Godden's performance, who is handed a two-game ban and the missed chance from Teemu Pukki.
Gyokeres' fifth goal of the season
Viktor Gyokeres has been a standout player for Coventry this season, scoring nine goals in his first eleven games. The Czech striker had struggled to find his feet in English football before this season, but has now turned the tables. His fifth goal for Coventry came in a 3-1 win over Fulham on Sunday. Gyokeres has now scored five goals in his last four games and has already equalled his career high of 18 in the Championship. He had a disappointing spell at Swansea City two seasons ago but is looking to make amends. The striker is still a youngster but has a fine eye for goal. Everton are reportedly interested in signing Coventry City striker Viktor Gyokeres. However, the club have set a PS15 million price tag for the forward. Gyokeres has played in the Premier League three times and averaged 0.39 goals per game. Read More : kora tv
Godden's two-game ban
The late penalty scored by Viktor Gyokeres earned Coventry a point. The Millers had led early on thanks to a goal from Cohen Bramall. Gustavo Hamer equalised before half-time but Conor Washington restored Rotherham's lead in the second half. Viktor Gyokeres netted the winning penalty in the 90th minute. The result was a good point for Coventry, but it is disappointing for Rotherham fans, who feel that they were robbed of a win. Following Saturday's 4-1 win over Fulham, Coventry City's Matt Godden has been banned for two games for breaching FA Rule E3. He scored a controversial penalty after being tripped in the box by Fulham defender Antonee Robinson. Fulham manager Marco Silva claimed Godden dived, but Godden has now admitted his breach.
Godden's performance in Cardiff
Cardiff have drawn 0-0 with Coventry City in the Sky Bet League One clash. The visitors led through Callum Robinson's glancing header, but referee Bobby Madley was right to rule it offside. Cardiff boss Phil Hudson made several changes in the second half to try to crack the Coventry defence. Despite the scoreline, the Welsh side were far from convincing and had to settle for a point. The home side dominated the game in the first half and looked certain to win on opening weekend but a late Gyokeres penalty earned Coventry a point. The 22-year-old from Sweden has been linked with a move to Fulham.
Teemu Pukki's missed chance
Coventry were beaten 2-0 by Norwich City at the weekend. The match was a tight affair and Norwich dominated the midfield and knocked the ball around confidently. The hosts came close to taking the lead with Teemu Pukki's first goal of the season but the Finn tripped over the ball when trying to pass to a team-mate. The ball was cleared and Coventry were unable to make a breakthrough. After the restart, Tyler Walker was brought down by a challenge from Norwich's Grant Hanley and was shown a yellow card.

Norwich hit Coventry on a counter attack and Pukki played through on the right side. He picked a spot on the far post and shot across Ben Wilson. Pukki has now scored 15 goals in all competitions, making him the fourth highest scorer in the division.
Coventry's pressure on Rotherham
Viktor Gyokeres' late penalty helped Coventry earn a point in their League One clash with Rotherham United. Rotherham had lead after Cohen Bramall's first-half goal, but Coventry responded with a flurry of counter-attacking moves. Coventry had a good spell, with Kevin Egan heading an Oli McBurnie cross goalwards before Ben Wilson made an important save. Coventry continued to apply pressure but were unable to break down the Rotherham defence until the 76th minute when Tom Hamer's low strike hit the base of the post. Coventry started the game unusually early - their season had been postponed while the World Cup took place in Qatar - however, this didn't detract from their performance. They were well-rested at the break, despite putting in some excellent pressure. In the second half, they were even more dangerous - putting three corners on Rotherham. Source : kora online tv
