Behind the Numbers, Statistics

Behind the numbers; 2014 in review.

Behind the NumbersCoventry City started 2014 with a bang, winning 1-3 away at eventual Play-Off winners Rotherham United, however, there wouldn’t be too much left to shout about with the departures of key players and free fall down the League One table to follow.

In 2013, Coventry City scored an impressive total of 111 goals, mainly thanks to the combined efforts of Leon Clarke (27) and Callum Wilson (16), however 2014 would see Clarke and Wilson both leave through the exit door with City failing to replace their goals, managing to score just 52.2% of the previous calendar year’s goal tally.

2014 saw the Sky Blues find the next only 58 times, however Callum Wilson, despite joining Championship side Bournemouth during pre-season, still finished the calendar year as the club’s top goalscorer with seven (7) goals in fifteen (15) appearances. Whilst some questioned whether Wilson would be able to make the step-up with The Cherries, he has notched a further thirteen (13) goals in twenty-seven (27) appearances; a total of twenty (20) goals for 2014.
