Coventry celebrated their last game at Highfield Road in style with a thumping 6-2 win over Derby.

The Sky Blues, who are moving to a new stadium at the end of the season, signed off in perfect style in front of their own fans with the performance of their season.

Coventry were quickly out of the traps with Gary McSheffrey breaking the deadlock on 20 minutes.

McSheffrey doubled the lead eight minutes later when converting from the penalty spot after former Sky Blue Mo Konjic pushed Claus Jorgensen inside the area.

Dele Adebola added a third on 37 minutes when he rounded Lee Camp and slotted the ball into the empty net and Stern John netted the fourth five minutes before the break when he headed home Stephen Hughes' corner.

Derby pulled a goal back six minutes after the break with Adam Bolder firing home from Inigo Idiakez's free kick.

Coventry restored their commanding lead three minutes later with John firing home his second goal of the game through the legs of Camp.

Substitute Paul Peschisolido reduced the arrears again on 62 minutes, but Coventry sealed a memorable day with substitute Andy Whing brilliantly volleying home to send Highfield Road into raptures.
