Coventry began life in their new home - the Ricoh Arena with an impressive 3-0 win over Queens Park Rangers.

First half goals from Claus Jorgensen and Dele Adebola (2) were enough to give Coventry their first win of the season.

Jorgensen wrote himself into the Coventry history books when scoring the first goal at the new ground when he superbly headed home after just 11 minutes.

Coventry doubled their lead on 24 minutes when Adebola cut inside Matthew Rose and fired a shot past Simon Royce.

The home side put the game beyond QPR right on the stroke of half time when Adebola netted from close-range after Jamie Scowcroft's cross struck the post.

Things got worse for QPR ten minutes into the second half when Danny Shittu was sent off for tugging back Adebola.

Adebola was denied his hat trick ten minutes from time when Royce kept out his shot with his legs.
