Gary McSheffrey was the hero for Coventry as they beat Watford.

McSheffrey scored the only goal of a tight game to give the hosts the points against The Hornets.

Coventry had started well, and Dele Adebola saw goalkeeper Richard Lee deny him from close range.

Andy Morrell then saw Lee produce another fine save to divert his goalbound cross-cum-shot, and the goalkeeper also did superbly to deny Adebola again.

But then Lee collided with a defender and was stretchered off with a fractured cheekbone, to be replaced by 40-year-old Alec Chamberlain.

Chamberlain belied his years to race back and clear Adebola's looping header off the line.

But the veteran could do little when McSheffrey raced through and slotted home after a fine ball from Adebola.

McSheffrey failed to add to his tally from a much easier chance in the second half, managing to clear the crossbar from a matter of yards out, and then hit the woodwork late on with a deft chip - but his goal proved enough for The Sky Blues.
