Three vital points for Coventry, as they remained on course in their play-off chase…

A comfortable win really, all of the action coming in the first half. Coventry raced into a two goal lead inside the first six minutes, both goals coming from Marc McNulty. The lead was short lived though, with Stevenage pulling one back in the twentieth minute…

First Half Action: waiting for a Coventry Goal Kick…

However, the two goal lead was restored in the 37th minute via a Liam Kelly strike from the edge of the box. Three minutes later Luke Williamson was shown a straight red, following a poor challenge on McNulty, and that was the end of the game as a contest…

Coventry had chances to extend their lead in the second half, but were more than happy to settle for what they already had…
