Coventry City suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of Cambridge United on Saturday afternoon, a match that the Sky Blues will feel they should have drawn at the very least as the visitors to the Abbey Stadium created a host of chances throughout the 90 minutes.

Duckens Nazon, called up for the Haiti national side this week, continued his development on loan from Wolves with the only City goals, sandwiched between strikes from Ibehre and Ikpeazu for the hosts.

Mark Robins was left frustrated by the reverse but will know that his side will win many more than they lose should they consistently match their level of performance.

That theory faces its first test next Saturday when early-season pacesetters Exeter City are the visitors to the Ricoh Arena.

At the foot of the division, two League Two managers were sacked in the immediate aftermath of matches on Saturday.

Port Vale parted company with Michael Brown after a 1-1 draw against Forest Green Rovers while Gary Caldwell, linked with the Coventry job last season, leaves Chesterfield following their home defeat to Accrington Stanley.

Former Sky Blues caretaker manager Lee Carsley, meanwhile, is in temporary charge again, this time at Birmingham City after the surprise axeing of Harry Redknapp on Saturday evening.
