Coventry City continued their upward momentum under caretaker manager Andy Thorn and made themselves safe barring a miracle by beating Millwall in an entertaining clash at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.
For the first half-an-hour the Sky Blues were well on top, boosted by Marlon King's early goal and playing some lovely football which drew warm applause from the home fans.
Millwall forced their way back into the game however, prompted by the excellent Henry and went in level at the break thanks to Townsend's strike.
Neil Harris made what must be one of the shortest substitute's appearances ever after half-time before being dismissed for a kick out at Aron Gunnarsson but the ten men proved difficult to play against as City struggled to find a way through.
They did get a winner however six minutes after a patient move which ended in Keogh's cross being swept in by King, a sweet moment for the striker who received even more stick than usual from the opposition fans.
Another good job interview then for Thorn who has steered City up to 16th in the Championship and was full of praise afterwards for what he called the best squad of players the club has had since relegation.
"They have got belief in themselves and if handled correctly and looked after, we can be as successful as everybody wants to be at this football club.
"They came and changed their shape to cope with us which is a compliment in itself which is nice. We will find hurdles everywhere we go at the moment.
"I really believe in this group of players. They are answering every question that we are throwing at them."
