Canaries loan exports among the goals

JACOB Murphy enjoyed mixed emotions on Saturday, scoring his first Coventry City goal since joining the Club in a 2-1 defeat at Walsall.

The hosts went in front five minutes before the break through Milan Lalkovic, before Tom Bradshaw doubled the advantage early in the second half.
Murphy reduced the deficit on 56 minutes, playing a corner short before collecting the return pass and sending a thumping drive into the top-corner.

However, his stike proved to be in vain as the Sky Blues' winning start to their 2015-16 league campaign was brought to an end at the Banks's Stadium.

Speaking afterwards, Murphy told Coventry's official website: "It's nice to score, and it was one of my better goals it doesn't matter at all.

"We've got a lot of character and won't be disheartened by the result. I'm enjoying my time here and just want to help get the club to the right end of the table."

Minor set back today, but we'll look to put things right next Monday! Ledge number of away fans today, always appreciated! #PUSB

Meanwhile, twin brother Josh Murphy was an unused substitute as MK Dons drew 0-0 at Reading in the Sky Bet Championship, after the winger completed a season-long move to the Buckinghamshire side last week.

In Scotland, Carlton Morris scored for the second game running as Hamilton Academical won 2-0 away to Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The forward put Accies in front with a confident finish in the 18th minute, ahead of Louis Longridge's late goal sealing maximum points for Martin Canning's side.

Back-to-back wins have moved City boss Alex Neil's former team up to fourth in the Scottish Premier League, ahead of facing early pace-setters Hearts next weekend.

Another great result today away from home against a strong SPL club, staying focused ⚪️🔴 #accies
