Coventry overcome Exeter to secure promotion to League One

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 613

Coventry City beat Exeter 3-1 in the League Two play-off final at Wembley to seal their return to England's third division at the first attempt.

It was a very even first half but Coventry struck the first blow shortly after the break when centre-back Jordan Willis curled a shot into the top corner.

They made it 2-0 five minutes later as fellow academy product Jordan Shipley's first-time strike deflected over goalkeeper Christy Pym.

The final was all over in the 68th minute when Coventry scored their third with a stunning effort by Jack Grimmer.

Kyle Edwards netted Exeter a consolation at the death but they ultimately fell 3-1 to their second successive play-off final defeat. 

As the full-time whistle rang out at Wembley, Coventry fans stormed the pitch as they hope to make their way back up the divisions.
