Coventry City shocked Championship leaders Fulham 3-1 at Craven Cottage to delay the home side’s seemingly inevitable promotion to the Premier League.

Michael Rose and Viktor Gyokeres scored four minutes apart a quarter of the way through the game to give the away side a commanding lead.

Substitute Bobby De Cordova-Reid’s neat, left-foot finish set up a grandstand end to the game after the home side had squandered a number of chances, with Rodrigo Muniz’s deflected effort almost finding its way in to equalise.

Callum O’Hare tapped into an empty net following a howler from Fulham captain Tim Ream in added time to secure the points that move them up to 10th in the table, six points off a play-off place, while Fulham still need two wins to guarantee automatic promotion.
