Louis Dunne made his return to action after nine months out on Monday, as the U's U23s took on Coventry City.

Louis was introduced as a 71st minute substitute for his first competitive action since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in training back at the start of 2018.

In Monday's game, the U's took the lead after 17 minutes, as Noah Chilvers' shot came back off the post and Callum Jones reacted quickest to score.

However, the lead was to last only a couple of minutes, as Amadou Bakayoko finished low past Ethan Ross to level things up.

City were in front just after the half hour mark, as just after Kai Hamilton had tested the home keeper, Jak Hickman converted past Ross after a good Coventry move.

The U's were still well in the game coming into half time, but fell further behind on the hour mark.

Andreu played a one two with Bakayoko and scored the home side's third with a tidy finish.

And eleven minutes later, Coventry wrapped it up with Bakayoko turning scorer as he picked up a loose ball to make it 4-1.

Dunne was introduced shortly afterwards and played the remaining twenty minutes to step up his return to full fitness.
