After a difficult period, Ben Amos kept a clean sheet in Hull’s 1-0 win at Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend. The 22-year-old helped Steve Bruce’s side pick up a valuable win which lifted them back up to 10th in the Championship table. Amos would have been proud of his goal-kick that led directly to the only goal of the game. His long punt found Aaron Mclean who netted the 77th-minute winner.
John Cofie was not involved in Sheffield United’s overdue win at Leyton Orient by the same scoreline.
Blades boss Danny Wilson told the Sheffield Star that Cofie did not make the trip to London because of a groin injury. He said: “John couldn’t be involved and so there was no point in asking him to come down when he could be staying at home and receiving treatment.”
“Fingers crossed, the rest will help and then we’ll see how he is.”
Mark Robins’ Coventry also won by a single goal – against Bournemouth – but Reece Brown was an unused substitute. Brown wasn’t in the squad for the midweek Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash with York which Coventry comfortably won 4-0.
