I remember just before this MR had said you needed to get your shots off quicker. When it came to you, I thought ‘just hit it’ and you did! Sounds strange, but the deflection made it even more magical because it seemed to hang in the air – nothing was going to stop it. Goosebumps

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.
