After a slow start to the game, Latics have battled well and go into the break with a deserved one nil lead.
A great counter attack fuelled by Mike Petrasso earned Latics a corner which was powerfully headed in at the near post by Jonson Clarke-Harris. Although Coventry started well, Athletic have had the better chances. A diving Genseric Kusunga header was athletically tipped wide by Coventry keeper Joe Murphy while James Tarkowski's shot whistled over the bar.
Half-time: Coventry City 0, Latics 1.
