Coventry edged a dramatic nine-goal thriller on Wearside with Enobakhare, who signed for Coventry on loan in the January transfer window, capping a fine individual performance with the opening goal after just 12 minutes.

 

And Robins, not for the first time, has hailed the impact of his fleet-footed Nigerian forward.

“Enobakhare is just unbelievable on the ball,” said the one-time Manchester United defender. “He went through and you could see from minute one today that he was ready for the game.

“He got into a great position and opened his body up but also the accuracy and to put it beyond the goalkeeper with power and precision was outstanding.”
