Jordan Shipley and Gervane Kastaneer were on the scoresheet as Coventry earned a 2-0 home victory over Bristol Rovers.
Coventry went into the break in front after Shipley netted from a Wesley Jobello cross on the stroke of half-time following an evenly-balanced first half.
Jobello’s scuffed cross from the right evaded everyone apart from Shipley, who hit a powerful left-footed half-volley past goalkeeper Anssi Jaakkola and into the net.
Despite sustained pressure from Rovers after the break, the away side failed to capitalise. The Sky Blues held firm before Kastaneer’s goal in the 82nd minute secure maximum points for the home side.
After a smart exchange with Fankaty Dabo on the right, Kastaneer fired a left-footed effort from 30 yards which bent around Jaakola and in off the post.
Rovers struggled to get a foothold throughout the game, creating little in the way of clearcut chances as they failed to register a single shot on target.
