Oct 6, 2018 | Players Abroad News | 1 comment

Sierra Leone’s Amadou Bakayoko scored twice to help a late Coventry City turnaround at the Valley in a Sky Bet League One match on Saturday.

Lyle Taylor’s penalty had the home side ahead at the interval, but a brace from substitute Amadou Bakayoko was all that matters to see the visitors returning to the Midlands with all three points.

Bakayoko scored his third of the season in the last 10 minutes with the winner coming in added-time.

The former Walsall man nipped in to head home in the first minute of added-time and sentence the South Londoners to their first home defeat since August.

The 22-year-old, who joined the Sky Blues on a two-year deal scored 18 times over the course of the last two seasons for Walsall.

He was in the initial list of players named by Sierra Leone coach John Keister for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches but pulled out of the squad.
