As Coventry say goodbye to the Championship, let’s take a look at what went wrong for them.
They finished the season on 7 points after 22 games, which was 11 points off the team above them, Sunderland.
They conceded the most goals in the whole league with 75, which accumulated to a -59 goal difference.
With the many issues they had over the campaign defensively they also found it hard to find the net themselves.
They only scored 16 goals across the 22 games.
The 2 wins they did get over the season came against, Blackburn Rovers and Crystal Palace. With both these wins coming soon after the Christmas break where things we’re looking up for them.
Unfortunately, the issues carried on, not so long after, as they didn’t manage to win a game in the league.
Since they joined the league back in 2019/20 season, their highest finish was one position above the relegation in 11th, where they finished both seasons, which showed they have always struggled to compete at this level, but this year they struggled just that little bit more.
They did have more luck in the cup competitions by beating Hashtag United 4-0 in the FA Cup, where their clubs top goal scorer, Mary McAteer, was back on the score sheet.
Whilst also beating fellow Championship side Southampton in the Continental Tyres league cup but unfortunately, not making it through to the knockouts due to a loss against Women’s Super League side Reading.
Their manager, Lee Burch, has always spoke highly of his team’s togetherness and if they can stay and stick together next season, they may just make it back in the Championship.
Do you believe Coventry United can bounce straight back up after the first time of asking next season?
