IN REVIEW: COVENTRY CITY 0-1 IRON

14 November 2016

We take a look at all the essentials from our 1-0 away victory against Coventry City at the weekend.


The Iron stretched their lead at the summit of League One to five points following a hard-fought win at the Ricoh Arena.

Josh Morris grabbed his 14th league goal of the campaign in the second half, smashing home a Paddy Madden cross to give United all three points against the Sky Blues of Coventry, with a superb defensive display maintaining the clean sheet.

THE DEFINING MOMENT: Josh Morris wheels away in celebration after smashing home his 15th of the season.


Tim Sherwood’s time at Swindon Town started perfectly, with the newly-installed Director of Football watching his team win 3-0 against Charlton Athletic. 

Sean Murray’s deflected goal got the ball rolling in the early kick-off, which was live on Sky Sports, while Lloyd Jones and Man of the Match Johnny Goddard added gloss in the second half. 

That result moved the Robins out of the bottom four, and Shrewsbury Town lifted themselves off of the foot of the division, winning 2-0 against Oxford United in a 3pm match. 

At the top of the division, leaders Scunthorpe United recorded a 1-0 success against Coventry City, and Bradford City moved up to second for 24 hours at least by thumping Rochdale 4-0. 

Southend United also scored four - Nile Ranger hit two of those for his first goals for the club - as they inflicted a seventh successive loss on Bury. 

Gillingham were winless in seven going into Saturday but saw off Northampton Town 2-1, and that was the scoreline Port Vale registered against Fleetwood Town to rise up to sixth. 

On Sunday, the day's live Sky Sports action began with Peterborough's home win over Bolton Wanderers. This was followed by a fine performance from Sheffield United who notched three second-half goals in a 4-1 win away at bottom side Chesterfield.
