Sky Blue 2008 - February

Sky Blue 2008 - February

Coventry City began February with a 4-0 home win over Barnsley but just over a week later, Iain Dowie was sacked as manager as new chairman Ray Ranson made his mark.

Dowie's record after 49 games in charge, 20 of them victories including the cup triumphs over Manchester United and Blackburn.

The FA Cup provides no respite for the Sky Blues while in the caretaker charge of Frank Bunn and John Harbin as West Brom romp to a 5th Round win at the Ricoh Arena.

Ranson's man is named as former Fulham boss Chris Coleman and he gets an immediate taste of the inconsistency that has plagued City for years.

A 2-0 win over Leicester gives Coleman a debut win but a relegation fight is still firmly on the cards after defeat away to Burnley just days later.
