Haji Wright bags fifth league goal of season for Coventry City

Haji Wright is closing out the month of November in similar fashion to the way he started it.

Wright scored the winning goal for Coventry City on Tuesday in a 1-0 triumph over Plymouth Argyle. The U.S. men’s national team forward now has five EFL Championship goals this season, with three of those coming in the month of November.

With both teams pressing for a winning goal in the second half, Wright came up clutch for the Sky Blues with 15 minutes to play. Milan van Ewijk’s cross into the box was finished off by Wright into the center of the net, giving Mark Robins’ squad a 1-0 advantage.

Despite Plymouth’s best efforts, the Sky Blues hung on for their second-straight victory fifth overall through 18 league matches played.

Wright led all players in duels won (10), fouls drawn (3), and tackles completed (2) through his 90 minutes on the field. The 25-year-old is second on Coventry’s roster in goals scored, one behind leading-scorer Matt Golden (6).


Coventry’s seven-match December schedule opens on Dec. 2 with a trip to fellow promoted side Ipswich Town.
