REPORT: Boro 2-0 Coventry

21 July 2018

Four wins from four this pre-season...

Stevenage were victorious over another League One side after beating Coventry City 2-0 comfortably.

Dino Maamria’s men have now won all four of their pre-season games thus far, with two more to play before the real stuff starts.

The boss named no trialists in the starting eleven, after both Alex Reid and Ben Nugent were announced earlier in the week.

Stevenage were on top right from the start. After winning the free-kick 25 yards out, Ben Kennedy whipped the ball towards the top corner, before the Coventry goalkeeper kept it out.

The home side were keeping possession well and making the most of it. 15 minutes in, it was Kennedy causing trouble for the Coventry back four once again. After picking the ball up on the halfway line, Boro’s number 10 slalomed past three or four defenders, before slotting it through to Alex Reid. Unfortunately, our new striker’s shot was blocked by the ‘keeper. The goal was coming. 

Halfway through the first half, Stevenage got their deserved lead. A brilliant passing move on the edge of the Coventry box ended at James Ball’s feet, before the midfielder slotted calmly into the bottom left corner. A great goal in his first Stevenage appearance. 

Boro didn’t stop there. Johnny Hunt’s thunderous strike from the corner of the box was tipped wide of the post, leading to a corner. Joel Byrom’s pinpoint cross landed on the head of Ben Nugent, who scored his second goal in two games.

As the referee blew the half-time whistle, Stevenage were in control and looked comfortable with their two-goal lead.

Before the second half, goalscorer James Ball and captain Ronnie Henry were swapped for two trialists.

Ben Nugent looked to start the second half like he ended the first. Rising highest yet again from a Joel Byrom corner, this time the defender couldn’t direct his shot on target.

Twenty minutes into the second period, Boro’s trialist goalkeeper had to make a wonder save to stop Jordan Ponicelli from halving the deficit. The Coventry striker hit the ball on the half volley from the edge of the box, but was no match for the ‘keeper who definitely impressed the boss with that save. 

The game petered out towards the end of the 90 minutes. An influx of substitutions which were mainly trialists took a certain edge of the game, as Stevenage looked to cruise to victory. 

The game ended 2-0 to Stevenage after another impressive performance.
