    • 19:12 The referee blows his whistle to signal the end of the game and Coventry record their first win of the season after a superb second half display.
    • 18:59 Derby try to claw their way back into the game as Chris Maguire comes on for Steve Davies.
    • 18:56 GOAL! COVENTRY 2-0 DERBY: What a volley! A long throw is inadvertantly flicked on by a Derby defender into the path of Baker, who smashes an unstoppable shot from 12 yards past Fielding.
    • 18:54 Another instant impact from a substitute as O'Donovan forces Fielding into a low save with a fierce shot.
    • 18:53 Coventry make their second change, and the very quiet McDonald's debut is over as he is replaced by Roy O'Donovan.
    • 18:46 Lee Croft goes off for Derby and is replaced by the pacy Theo Robinson.
    • 18:44 It's a completely different Coventry side out there at the moment as sky blue shirts stream forward in stark contrast to the first half. Andy Thorn must have really fired his side up during the break.
    • 18:36 GOAL! COVENTRY 1-0 DERBY: At the third attempt, Jutkiewicz finally scores from the penalty spot after Jason Shackell bundled Richard Keogh over in the box, and the striker sent Fielding the wrong way from 12 yards.
    • 18:35 Coventry are coming back into the game and Fielding does well to tip over a 30 yard effort from Carl Baker.
    • 18:34 Jutkiewicz is inches away from giving the home side the lead when he latches onto a wonderful cross by Cyrus Chrsitie, but his studs can only guide the ball agonisingly wide of post.
    • 18:31 The rain is really pouring in the Midlands now but it doesn't prevent Dunn from getting down low to stop Ward's clever effort from a tight angle.
    • 18:27 Despite being up against it for the first 50 minutes, Coventry go closest to scoring when Jutkiewicz sees his shot blocked on the line by Kilbane. An interesting second 45 looks to be in store!
    • 18:24 90 seconds since arriving on the pitch and Dunn is forced into a great reflex save from a shot from Brayford.
    • 18:23 And we're back underway for the second half.
    • 18:22 A half-time change for Coventry - and it's between the posts. Murphy picked up a hamstring injury during the first half and rookie keeper Chris Dunn takes his place.
    • 18:16 An interesting half-time stat for you which perfectly shows how both sides have started the season. A win for Derby today would see them record their best start to a season for 106 years, and would condemn Coventry to their worst start since 1919.
    • 18:09 And it's half-time at the Ricoh. Derby have been much the brighter going forward whilst the Coventry defence looks rather shaky.
    • 17:58 Derby are looking menacing in attack and only a well-timed slide tackle by Chris Hussey prevents Lee Crofts from bursting into the box.
    • 17:52 Carl Baker is next to test Fielding but his header is easily stopped by the Derby shot-stopper.
    • 17:48 The home side have their keeper Joe Murphy to thank for keeping the scoresheet blank as Ward finds himself through on goal after some sloppy defending, however Murphy stays big and blocks the Northern Ireland international's effort.
    • 17:46 Bit of a feisty opening 26 minutes as both teams struggle to create anything of any note - emphasised by a wild blast at goal by John Brayford which sails harmlessly over the bar.
    • 17:35 And now Coventry have replied with a header from a corner themselves, but Lukas Jutkiewicz fails to get any power on his attempt which is comfortably saved by Frankie Fielding.
    • 17:31 After a quiet opening 10 minutes, Derby have a golden opportunity to take the lead but Kilbane heads over from a great outswinging corner from Ben Davies.
    • 17:21 And we're underway at the Ricoh.
    • 17:21 Coventry name Cody McDonald in the starting line for the first time following his move from Norwich, whilst Derby can call on Kevin Kilbane and Jamie Ward following injury scares.
    • 17:18 COVENTRY: Murphy, Christie, Keogh, Cranie, Hussey, Bell, Bigirimana, Clingan, Baker, Jutkiewicz, McDonald… Subs: Dunn, McSheffrey, O'Donovan, Cameron, Thomas /// DERBY: Fielding, Brayford, O'Brien, Shackell, Kilbane, Croft, Hendrick, Ben Davies, Ward, Bryson, Steve Davies… Subs: Legzdins, Roberts, Maguire, Anderson, Robinson.
  • Summary

    • 18:56 GOAL! COVENTRY 2-0 DERBY: What a volley! A long throw is inadvertantly flicked on by a Derby defender into the path of Baker, who smashes an unstoppable shot from 12 yards past Fielding.
    • 18:36 GOAL! COVENTRY 1-0 DERBY: At the third attempt, Jutkiewicz finally scores from the penalty spot after Jason Shackell bundled Richard Keogh over in the box, and the striker sent Fielding the wrong way from 12 yards.
