Defence delights Adams
Dele Adebola's late goal gave the Sky Blues a second successive away win and ensured that they will finish in the top-half of the Championship this season.
Home side Stoke City were in the ascendency for much of the game and Coventry boss Micky Adams admitted afterwards: 'Our play was a bit predictable until we put Dele Adebola on. He gave us something different.
Adams though, added: 'All of the lads did their jobs but I was especially pleased with our defenders who fought for everything.
'We finally seem to have found a winning formula although it has come too late for this season.'
