Coventry City U23's put in a superb second half performance to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-1 at the Alan Higgs Centre.

Jason Farndon, who was well wrapped up on a cold afternoon, had Tom Bilson in goal with new signing Declan Drysdale starting along, Chris Camwell back from his trial at MK Dons with Reise Allasani and Tony Andreu.

City had three good chances in the first half but in the 40th minute, the QPR number eleven - Grant, was allowed to get down the left and score past Bilson.

Into the second half and City took the game to the West Londoners. Jak Hickman was superb at the back along with Williams, Drysdale and Camwell with Jack Burroughs, Andreu and Josh Eccles all doing well in midfield and David Bremang and Dexter Walters, posing a threat up front.

The Sky Blues were deservedly level on the hour when Jak Hickman took a corner which found Camwell. A peach of a cross later and there was Morgan Williams to head the ball high into the net.

Game on and City were going for it, looking a threat every time they attacked and in the 70th minute, Hickman superbly controlled the ball and sent it over to David Bremang who was fouled by the QPR number 5 Kefelas. Out came the red card and the visitors were down to ten men and a penalty to City.

David Bremang, who scored twice in the win at Charlton Athletic on Monday, thumped it home and the Sky Blues were ahead.

The pressure continued and in the 78th minute, there was a third goal when Reise Allansani missed with his first touch on the right in front of goal. It looked like the chance had gone but Allassani recovered and superbly lashed the ball into the net.

With two minutes to go, Bremang was through again and pulled down by the QPR keeper. A penalty it was but the keeper saved a poor effort and the Sky Blues took an excellent 3-1 win and a six point haul from their first two matches of 2019.
