Tyler Walker’s brace increased Coventry’s hopes for survival as they took a deserved 2-0 win over the stuttering Brentford

After two surprise defeats in a week to Barnsley and QPR, the hunted bees for promotion got into the fight at St Andrews And the news that they missed 24-goal top scorer Ivan Toney with a minor ankle injury would have done little to improve their fans’ nerves. He was greatly missed as the visitors in the front areas lacked the bite while a hard working and positive Sky Blues team in attack and defense impressed

Coventry, boosted by skipper Liam Kelly’s first start since December, walked 19 minutes from the penalty spot David Raya rescued Maxime Biamous fierce blow, but after the rebound, Biamou was caught in the penalty area by Rico Henry Walker stepped forward and put the penalty under the Spanish goalkeeper

The home team started well again after the break Gustavo Hamer shot into the side netting before she was in the 55 Minute, their lead doubled Callum O’Hare took advantage of the sloppy defensive game and fed Walker, who turned around cleverly and shot deep into the right corner of Raya’s net

Brentford made a three-fold change, with Josh Dasilva, Tarique Fosu and Henrik Dalsgaard, but clear opportunities were hard to come by, and it was Coventry threatening a third when Dom Hyam came out of a corner and Dalsgaard pushed himself far in the last 20 minutes and Dasilva saw an effort deflected but Coventry was comfortable and well worth their win

Meanwhile, the English Football League has expressed disappointment with the Treasury’s temporary suspension of a loan payment to championship clubs but is confident that a solution will be found

Teams of the second division expected a loan of 100 million on Friday GBP to be paid out through the Bank of England to end the current season, however, earlier this week agreed terms of the financial bailout were changed by the government, which insisted that the salary restrictions for “relevant people” not only board members but also executives include

It resulted in the EFL writing to championship clubs on Thursday to keep up with the situation Overall, while the delay is undesirable, it is expected that the loan will be paid off with proactive discussions with the Treasury Department
