Coventry City ground out another important League Two victory on Tuesday evening, seeing off a stubborn Carlisle United side by two goals to nil, breaking the half-time deadlock thanks to goals from Duckens Nazon and Tony Vincenti.

Another clean sheet and a positive second-half attacking display will have pleased manager Mark Robins and gone some way to convincing him that his squad will cope with the ‘horrendous’ blow of losing Tony Andreu, in many ways City’s most ambitious summer signing, for the remainder of the campaign.

That news was confirmed after the final whistle on an evening when Nazon showed his delight at scoring his first for the club and the likes of Vincenti and Stuart Beavon also showed their worth.

Following on from Saturday’s 1-0 win against Port Vale it was the type of three points that the Sky Blues will need to collect on a regular basis if they are to challenge for promotion at the end of a season that is the final one of their current deal to remain at the Ricoh Arena.

That issue is the ‘priority’ for new CEO Dave Boddy, who hinted at a better relationship with landlords Wasps in his programme notes for the Carlisle game.
