Impressive Accrington continued their chase for automatic promotion with their third League Two win on the bounce by beating Coventry 2-0.
Jordan Clark bagged a goal either side of the break at the Ricoh Arena as Stanley moved into second place with their seventh win in their last eight games.
It also condemned Coventry to a second successive defeat, which has hit Mark Robins' side hard as they slipped two points outside of the play-off spots in the process.

Looking to get back to winning ways at the first attempt, the Sky Blues were behind after five minutes as Clark tapped home unmarked after Callum Johnson found him from the right-hand side.
The pair repeated the trick on the hour to put the game to bed and seal a vital three points.
The best chance for City fell to leading goalscorer Marc McNulty, who could only find the side-netting on the stroke of half-time.
Just after the restart, Billy Kee's free-kick cannoned off the woodwork as the visitors chased a second.
