Coventry v Doncaster

Coventry 2-1 Doncaster

Coventry   2 - 1   Doncaster

Gary McSheffrey
McSheffey's last goal was in February for Leeds

Gary McSheffrey hit his first goal since his summer return to Coventry to claim all three points at the Ricoh.

Substitute McSheffrey headed home Aron Gunnarsson's right-wing cross in the 86th minute to earn the Sky Blues their fourth league win of the season.

Earlier, Billy Sharp's low drive had cancelled out Gunnarsson's second-minute, close-range finish.

Marlon King was forced off injured in his first Coventry start since signing after serving a jail sentence.

King, who was jailed for 18 months after being found guilty of sexual assault and was released from prison in July before joining City, had one good effort tipped over by Rovers keeper Neil Sullivan.

But he departed the action on 65 minutes, at which stage the score stood at 1-1.

Gunnarsson opened the scoring for Coventry in their first attack, latching on to Clive Platt's ball across the face of goal to convert from six yards.

But Sharp drew Doncaster level just before half-time, when John Oster's superb raking pass picked out the Rovers striker, who drilled low from 12 yards.

The game then appeared to be heading for a draw until the late intervention of McSheffrey, in his first appearance in four matches.

With four minutes remaining, Gunnarsson sent over a pinpoint cross from the right and McSheffrey, on as a 61st minute substitute, powered home a header into the bottom corner from six yards.
