Coventry Rugby Club went down to a 14-24 defeat to Sedgeley Park this afternoon.

Phil Maynard has demanded a top five finish from his Coventry side who delighted the majority of a crowd of 1201 at the Butts Park Arena, when they took a 14-0 lead at half-time.

Sutherland went over for a try in the 25th minute which Maisey converted and thirteen minutes later, Barker scored a second try which was again converted by Maisey.

Coventry probably did not need half-time as the visitors regrouped and came back in the second half.

McGowan ran in a 50th minute try which Parrott converted and in the 59th minute, Harrison went over to reduce Coventry's lead to two points.

It stayed that way until the 76th minute when Jennings ran in a try and in the second minute of stoppage time, Dutton increased Sedgeley's margin of victory with a try which Parrot again converted.
