Coventry   1 - 0   Burnley

Coventry 1-0 Burnley

Coventry 1-0 Burnley

Michael Doyle's 25-yard strike ended Coventry's three-match losing run and left Burnley still searching for their first away win of the season.

In a poor first half, Gary McSheffrey's free-kick was saved by Lee Grant and Burnley's Chris Eagles fired over.

Doyle broke the deadlock just before the hour, finishing low after a corner was partially cleared.

Substitute Steven Thompson could have levelled for the visitors, but he blazed over and Coventry held on.

The morale-boosting victory means the Sky Blues climb into the top 10 in the Championship, above a Burnley side who remain the only club in the division without a win on the road this season.

Both goalkeepers were called into action in the early stages, with Grant keeping out Lee Carsley's drive and Keiren Westwood making a superb block from Jay Rodriguez.

A lack of quality permeated the rest of the first period, but the Ricoh Arena was jolted into life by McSheffrey's goal-bound free-kick, which Grant managed to tip around the post, while Eagles should have done better when he scuffed his shot over the bar.

The action showed little improvement in the early stages of the second half, but Burnley were energised by the introduction of Iceland international midfielder Aron Gunnarsson.

Soon after the change, Chris Iwelumo was put through by Tyrone Mears, but the former Wolves man could only fire wide when he should have done much better.

Within a minute, Burnley were made to pay by Doyle's first goal since February 2009. The midfielder collected a clearance from a Sky Blues' corner, took a touch and fired past Grant.

Thompson could have levelled and City substitute Lukas Jutkiewicz came close to adding a second in injury time, but it was Doyle's effort that proved to be the difference.
