Bright Enobakhare scored his third goal in five games as Coventry celebrated a 1-0 win at Accrington to boost their play-off hopes.
The on-loan Wolves striker received the ball around 30 yards out and ran at the Stanley defence, evading a number of challenges before finding the bottom corner on 60 minutes.
It was a third win in four games for Mark Robins’ men, who could face expulsion from the EFL on Tuesday as they have a deadline to confirm where they will play their home games next season.
The first half was largely forgettable. Stanley’s Sean McConville tested Lee Burge in the opening seconds of the game – and that was the only shot on target in the entire half.
Tom Bayliss also went close for Coventry early on with a 20-yard effort which was just wide.
The Sky Blues pressed after the break and got their rewards when Enobakhare went on a superb solo run to celebrate his opener.
Coventry looked the more likely to add to their tally with sub Luke Thomas denied a Coventry second by keeper Dimitar Evtimov’s legs in stoppage time.
