Job done: City 2-0 Coventry

Another 3 points gained as City beat Coventry 2-0 in front of over 19,000 at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Anthony Gerrard (Stevie's cousin) opened the scoring with a powerful header after just 5 minutes.

After that though, City endured a nervous 25 minutes or so, hardly being able to lay foot on ball, and when they did they just gave it away. They dragged it back a bit towards the end of the first half, and missed a couple of gilt edged chances.

The second period was a calmer affair for City fans - much more so after the outstanding Bothroyd had been dragged down in the box, Peter Whittingham converting easily from the spot.

Dave Jones didn't even make any substitutions tonight.

With West Brom and Newcastle losing, City are still third, but the gap is now just 1 point from those two.

Up the City!
