Six Canaries in weekend action

JACOB Murphy opened the scoring when Coventry City visited Port Vale in Sky Bet League One on Sunday, rounding the goalkeeper to slot home on 42 minutes.

His goal was cancelled out late on however, with former City Academy player Sam Kelly rescuing a point for the home side.

James Maddison, who returned to Coventry on loan after completing a move to the Canaries on transfer deadline day, played 64 minutes for the visitors before being replaced.
