Coventry City, Moving On Up....

A surprisingly good week for Coventry City, with a fairly unexpected victory over Leeds United, and Portsmouth being docked at least ten points - here's hoping it's more!

Gary McSheffrey's double from the penalty spot, including another injury time goal versus Leeds United (Which means we've taken four points from them this season rather than one!), hauled Coventry City off the bottom of the table, so the nose-bleed postion of twenty-second.

A disappointing crowd of just over 15,000 watched what was described as an 'insipid' Leeds side, while Norwood and Nimely starred for the home side (The latter being fouled twice to win both penalties).

Today's fixture against Forest is being seen by many as our most important game of the season, with a victory (Which would be our first away since Daniel Radcliffe had a squeaky voice!) giving real hope of surviving the drop, and defeat probably resiging us to it. A draw it is then....

The Forest match, which would surely have been a better choice than Reading for the 'Back The Boys' game, was the 'Sun' newspapers token collect fixture, though the tight-fisted East Midlands club apparently only offered twenty-four tickets!

Team Versus Leeds: Murphy, Christie, Keogh, Clarke, Cranie, Deegan, Norwood, Baker, McSheffrey, Platt, Nimely. SNU: Dunn, Willis, Bigirimana, Ruffels, Eastwood.
