Coventry Stuns Wolves with Dramatic Stoppage-Time Win to Reach FA Cup Semi-Finals

Coventry produced a stunning comeback to defeat Wolves 3-2 at Molineux and secure a spot in the FA Cup semi-finals, marking their first appearance in the semis since their victory in the competition in 1987.

In a dramatic turn of events, Championship side Coventry found themselves trailing after Wolves scored twice in the final seven minutes of regular time. However, Ellis Simms’ brace, including a crucial goal in the 97th minute, and Hagi Wright’s late strike in the 100th minute sealed Coventry’s remarkable comeback victory.

Despite missing key players, Coventry created numerous chances throughout the match, with Simms notably making amends for an earlier miss by scoring his 10th goal in eight games. Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa made several crucial saves to keep his side in the game, while Coventry’s Kasey Palmer came close with a curling effort that narrowly missed the target.

After Wolves equalized late in the game, Coventry responded with two quick goals deep into stoppage time, securing a memorable win and a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.

The victory represents a significant achievement for Coventry, who have experienced a resurgence under manager Mark Robins following their relegation to the fourth tier of English football in the 2017/18 season. With a potential Wembley appearance on the horizon, Coventry will eagerly await the outcome of the remaining quarter-final ties involving Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea.
