Games against Coventry United are generally close affairs and so it was to prove again as two second-half goals by Dan Westwood, both set up by the assist machine Lee Chilton, earned Ian Rowe‘s men a very handy three points on the road.
This was a largely scrappy affair, low on inspiration and magic and high on brawn and physicality. But the two slabs of magic served up by Chilton which paved the way for Westwood’s 17th and 18th of the season were what ultimately illuminated an otherwise drab game.
For the admirers of defensive manoeuvres, the Khalsa performance was one to behold. The centre halves Leon Miles and Tes Robinson, aided and abetted by Carlo Franco and debutant Adam Osbourne, produced a display of how to play the offside trap to perfection, giving the referee’s assistants a busy afternoon.
