Haji Wright celebrates
Haji Wright’s brace took him into double figures for Coventry City this season

Coventry City had to come from behind as Haji Wright’s two goals in three minutes beat Millwall to lift the Sky Blues into the Championship top six.

Despite wasting a lot of chances, Mark Robins’ side looked in danger of being beaten by teenager Romain Esse’s first-half strike.

But Wright went down in the penalty area in a tangle of legs with Millwall defender Japhet Tanganga to earn himself a 67th-minute spot-kick.

Then, having sent Matija Sarkic the wrong way from the spot, Wright fired a 70th-minute winner when his near-post shot beat Sarkic’s weak attempt to keep it out.

While City avoided the threat of a second home defeat of the season to climb four places to sixth, it was 18th-placed Millwall’s sixth game without a win across all competitions.
