Coventry City were comfortable 3-0 winners against Walsall on Saturday afternoon to make it two wins in a row for the Sky Blues.

And in a season when Mark Robins have often struggled to turn possession into goals the City boss will have been delighted with the margin of victory and to see a trio of his frontmen on the scoresheet as Amadou Bakayoko, Jordy Hiwula and Bright Enobakhare claimed a goal apiece.

“It was good, it’s about time really,” Robins told the official club website after the game.

“We could have taken a couple more chances and it could have been more emphatic, but I thought it was a really good performance.”

Having allowed Jonson Clarke-Harris to leave for Bristol Rovers on deadline day, Robins’ faith in summer signings Bakayoko and Hiwula is being rewarded as they respond to a regular run of games.

The overall picture (on the field at least) is again looking promising with City comfortably in the top-half of League One and still with hopes of making the play-offs, a huge achievement for a side that finished seventh in League Two last time out.

Robins continues to get it right far more often than not and there are also good things going on underneath the first-team in terms of recruitment.

League leaders Luton will provide a yardstick of where Coventry are when the two sides meet at Kenilworth Road in a live televised clash on Sunday lunchtime.
