Coventry City had to come from behind to beat Plymouth Argyle 3-1 at The Ricoh Arena.

Paul Wotton had a good chance to put Plymouth ahead in the opening exchanges only to see his header fly wide after getting on the end of a Tony Capaldi cross.

The opener came in the 26th minute when Anthony Barness crossed for David Norris to put the ball past Marton Fulop in the Coventry goal.

City boss Micky Adams clearly did not like what he was seeing as he made a triple substitution straight afterwards. And the response came when Claus Jorgensen wove his way forward before setting up Andy Morrell for a 36th minute equaliser.

With half-time looming, on-loan forward Don Hutchison restored Coventry's lead in the fourth minute of stoppage time after he was teed up by Andy Impey.

Coventry extended their lead when Gary McSheffrey picked up the ball on the edge of the area and slammed his eighth goal of the season into the bottom corner of the net.

Barness had a chance to hit back but his right-sided volley flew well wide, while Hutchison had a further chance for The Sky Blues but he planted a header wide from six yards.
