BBC Sport continue their partnership with Foyer Federation to bring you the best sports reports from budding young journalists around the country.

Tackling Skills is a project that gives Foyer residents the chance to work with BBC sports journalists to help develop their literacy and communication skills by using sport to inspire, motivate and re-engage them.

Here are some of the reports from Coventry's 2-0 home win over Sheffield United at the Ricoh Arena.

By Bobbi Khilji and Hayley Ward

Coventry City moved up to ninth place in the Championship after taking a comfortable 2-0 lead in the first half.

Sheffield United, who started the day in second place in the league, appeared not to have turned up as Coventry dominated play.

The hosts got off to a blinding start with Gary McSheffrey taking advantage of poor defending to lob the ball over an on- rushing Paddy Kenny in the fifth minute.

The Blades had a couple of minor chances but Coventry were not too troubled as they went on to score again in the 36th minute through Dele Adebola. City were in a period of possession when Marcus Hall passed the ball to the striker who fired it into the back of the net.

The half-time substitution of Rob Kozluk for Garry Flitcroft made a difference for the Blades, as their game improved dramatically.

However, the visitors were unable to create many real chances with Phil Jagielka spurning the best opportunity, leaving Coventry with their sixth straight home win.

Before the kick off there was a minute's silence for Denise McAllister, the wife of Coventry's former player-manager Gary McAllister. She died last week after a long battle with breast cancer.
