The response to seeing Coventry deducted 10 points due to more "off-the-field" problems, which saw them go into administration, was a swift one against League One title chasers Doncaster.
It wasn't even certain until the day before that The Sky Blues would even be playing at The Ricoh Arena for the Good Friday game, but they did and secured an impressive 1-0 win over Donny.
Recently appointed boss Steven Pressley was delighted with the "incredible response" he got for the win to be secured: 'The bottom line is that we are a football club. Often in periods like this, the football gets overlooked but today the players deserve special, special praise. I have only been here for four games prior to this one and Thursday's news from the Football League was a real blow to myself.
'For many of those players it is 39 games they have endured this season and after what I thought was hammer blow, the reaction and response from the players was incredible. Our first-half performance by all accounts was our best of the season. We passed the ball with great purpose but great patience at times and our work out of possession was terrific.
'We spoke about the points deduction before the game and the response we got is what I expected from them because in the games I have been here they have shown that type of character.'
It would have been easy for Coventry to roll over and accepted defeat, and written off the rest of the season really, but they remained truly professional and Pressley has every right to feel delighted, and proud, of his side.
