Four Off As City Draw With Kalloni

Last updated : 25 July 2014 By TM


Coventry City drew 0-0 with AEL Kalloni in Molveno in a game which saw four City players sent off.

Against a Greek Super League side which included former Wolves and Celtic player Henry Camara, six City supporters had made it to Molveno to see Steven Pressley start with Marcus Tudgay up front.  


 It was a positive start from the Sky Blues, in their sky blue kit with O'Brien curling a free kick over.

In the 19th minute of what was a heated game, Danny Pugh was sent off for a two footed tackle as was a Kalloni player who chucked a punch which sparked a melee.

Both teams down to ten men, Pugh unfairly sent off after being punched by an opposing player, kicking off but calmed down now!

The referee allowed both teams to replace those who had been sent off but was not so forgiving when Manuel Delgado (pictured below) smashed Andy Webster in the head just before the half hour mark and then when Billy Daniels made a foul he was red carded to make it four players sent off and ten a side.

Another Greek sent off, disgraceful behaviour and playacting

Tudgay won a corner but there was no goals at the break.

City manager Steven Pressley made three changes at the break bringing on Conor Thomas, Danny Seaborne and Danny Swanson.

Chances were at a premium with Manousos missing one easy chance to give Kalloni the lead. As Stephen Pressley used the last of his substitutes, the Greek side won a corner which came to nothing.

City, who had Conor Thomas captaining the side replacing Jordan Clarke, played some neat passing football, whilst James Maddison worked well up front
