Coventry   3 - 0   Barnsley

Coventry v Barnsley

Coventry 3-0 Barnsley

Barnsley's poor away form continued as Gary McSheffrey, Carl Baker and Jordan Clarke gave Coventry all three points.

McSheffrey beat keeper Luke Steele in the ninth minute after collecting Clive Platt's header on the left of the area.

The Tykes went close to a reply through Jacob Butterfield, Goran Lovre and Stephen Foster

But with four minutes left, Baker scored his first senior goal from 18 yards and Clarke caught Steele off his line to underline the victory.

The defeat leaves Mark Robins' side, who are without an away win in the Championship for 14 matches and who arrived at the Ricoh Arena late after being held up en route, languishing in 17th place.

But it was hardly a surprise to older Barnsley fans as the team have not won at Coventry since the 1923-24 season.

The Sky Blues, meanwhile, climb to sixth after a performance that began well with Lukas Jutkiewicz posing problems for the Barnsley defence before McSheffrey opened the scoring.

Coventry keeper Keiren Westwood was made to work by Butterfield and Lovre, but the home side might have extended their lead when Aron Gunnarsson flashed over.

As it was, Aidy Boothroyd's men were forced to wait until the final minutes to make the points safe.

Baker netted following a solo run in the 86th minute, and Clarke compounded Barnsley's misery after spotting Steele off his line at the death.
