Coventry   2 - 1   Scunthorpe

Coventry 2-1 Scunthorpe

Coventry 2-1 Scunthorpe

Jon Stead and Sammy Clingan were on target as 10-man Coventry sealed a deserved win over Scunthorpe.

The Sky Blues dominated before Stead smashed home from the edge of the box to break the deadlock.

Coventry's Leon Barnett was then sent off for hauling down Gary Hooper in the box but Keiren Westwood saved Hooper's resulting spot-kick.

Clingan added a second with a 20-yard free-kick, before Grant McCann pulled one back from close range late on.


Coventry manager Chris Coleman:
"The team spirit among the lads is fantastic and it's funny, the harder we are working, the more luck we are getting.

"We are definitely looking up instead of down now, even though we've played one or two games more than some others.

"It was a fantastic save from Keiren but the lads have earned this."

Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins:
"A few of the decisions that have gone against Scunthorpe United in recent games have not been good.

"We've had words in the dressing room though because this is frustrating and is an opportunity missed for us.

"We were poor in the first half but it was a bit more like it from us in the second period."
