Scunthorpe   0 - 2   Coventry

Scunthorpe 0-2 Coventry

Scunthorpe 0-2 Coventry

Coventry moved into the play-off places with victory over struggling Scunthorpe in the Championship.

Gary McSheffrey opened the scoring in the first half, rounding off a good move with a calm finish after Marlon King's effort was blocked.

Joe Murphy then put the ball into his own net when King's shot from 18 yards hit a post and went in off the unfortunate Irons goalkeeper.

Scunthorpe extended their winless run at home to eight league games.

They began well and City keeper Keiren Westwood had to pull of a great save to keep out Michael O'Connor's drilled effort after just three minutes.

And late in the game, City midfielder Aron Gunnarsson deflected Dany N'Guessan's shot off the line before Kevin McDonald drilled just wide.

But most of the action happened at the other end of the pitch, with McSheffrey firing over the crossbar before Clive Platt had his header tipped over by Murphy.

The influential King came close to breaking his City duck when his header was hooked off the line by Rob Jones.
