'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sky Blue season: January



The new year brought positive news on new signings for Coventry City but plenty of frustration on the pitch, especially late on in crucial matches.

Deals for Gary Deegan, Chris Hussey and Richard Wood were finalised as soon as the transfer window re-opened and they were joined by Carl Baker, a midfielder from Stockport County who would become an instant hit with Sky Blues fans.

Premier League strugglers Portsmouth were held to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup at Fratton Park before great work by the club's backroom staff enabled the home game against Barnsley to be one of the few to beat the adverse weather conditions.

City were rewarded with a 3-1 win and carried their momentum into the replay against Portsmouth when a superb Leon Best strike gave them a first-half lead. Injury-time and then extra-time heartache would follow however as Pompey took their first steps on what would be the road to Wembley.

There was more late drama at Portman Road the following Saturday with the Sky Blues levelling the game at 2-2 and then conceding the winning goal, both strikes coming after the allotted period of added time.

The month ended with draws away to Swansea and at home to Blackpool where a lethargic Leon Best played what would be his final game for the club.
