Peterborough 0-1 Coventry- Match Report

Last updated : 28 March 2015
Turgott gives Sky Blues liftBlair Turgott fired Coventry closer to Sky Bet League One survival as his first goal for the club earned a vital 1-0 win at Peterborough.Substitute Turgott, snapped up by the Sky Blues in February following his release from West Ham, coolly slotted past Peterborough goalkeeper Ben Alnwick in the 70th minute after a shot from fellow substitute Sanmi Odelusi had spun up off a defender into his path.Odelusi looked unlucky not to earn a penalty moments later before a full-stretch Dominic Samuel could only hit the outside of a post after being picked out by Turgott's delivery late on.But one goal was enough to complete a hat-trick of away wins as Tony Mowbray's men moved three points clear of the danger zone.It was a clash of few goalscoring chances with captain Jack Payne posing the biggest threat for Posh as the home side suffered only a second defeat under caretaker boss Dave Robertson to drop out of the play-off places.Midfielder Payne saw a first-half shot deflected narrowly wide before he fired into the side-netting early in the second period.Peterborough's new loan signing Luke Williams saw a fierce half-volley beaten away by Lee Burge before Luke James was denied by the Sky Blues goalkeeper soon after Posh had fallen behind
