A game of football so bad you couldn't take your eyes off it, was won in injury time with the least likely looking goal-scorer in the Championship - a list that includes defenders and goalkeepers too.

The first 45 minutes was bereft of incident, with both sides struggling to string more than a couple of passes together, though Nimely once again looked a cut above everything else on view.

Joe Murphy was only forced to get out of his deckchair once throughout this fixture, with Barnsley rarely bothering to cross the half-way line. If that was as good as Barnsley can manage, and said side finish above Coventry City, then Coventry City really do deserve to be relegated.

Baker was jeered off when replaced by David Bell ten minutes into the second half, and while not many people approve of such reactions, this did come after one of the most inept displays seen by anybody in a Coventry City shirt for a fair while, despite the list of contenders being extensive.

After Platt's unlikely late winner, McSheffrey almost (Somehow) doubled the home sides lead, hitting the bar with an even later effort.

On one of the more bizarre days since football began, Roy O'Donovan also managed to score on the same day as Platt (For some team in Scotland), possibly bankrupting any bookies that accepted a 'Platt-O'Donovan to score in the same decade' bet....

TEAM: Murphy, Christie, Clarke, Keogh, Cranie, Baker (Bell 55), Deegan, Norwood, McSheffrey, Nimely, Platt. SNU: Dunn, Cameron, Clingan, McDonald.
