Coventry City’s Jordan Shipley recently posted a tweet reminiscing over a classic Coventry win, which has got some Sky Blues fans talking. 

A Coventry City-focused Twitter account, @covgoals1, recently posted footage of Shipley’s goal from the 2017/18 League Two play-off final. This post caught Shipley’s attention, who responded with a post of his own, reminiscing fondly on what was ultimately a successful attempt to earn promotion to League One, commenting on the footage by stating “what a day this was”. 

Shipley scored in the 54th-minute of this game to give the Sky Blues a 2-0 lead in this fixture. Coventry subsequently went on to win the game 3-1, securing themselves a place in League One for the 2018/19 season in the process. 

Some Coventry City fans have been reacting to Shipley’s recent tweet by sharing their own positive memories of Coventry’s win in the 2017/18 League Two play-off final. Read the responses of some Sky Blues fans to Shipley’s recent post in the tweets below.

What do we think?

Shipley’s goal put Coventry, who currently sit at the top of the League One table, into a positive position in the 2017/18 League Two play-off final by stretching their lead to two goals in the 54th minute of the game. Considering that the 22-year-old came up through the Sky Blues’ youth system, it may be understandable why his goal, which helped Coventry to earn promotion back to League One just a season after being relegated from England’s third-tier in the 2016/17 campaign, may be remembered particularly fondly by some Sky Blues supporters.
