Coventry City continued their impressive start to the new Championship campaign with a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough. 

The Sky Blues recorded their fourth second-tier win of the season to jump into the play-off position, against Neil Warnock’s side who are now without a win in four. 

Viktor Gyokeres fired the Midlands club into the lead in the 71st minute, before Martyn Waghorn sealed all three points in the first minute of stoppage time. 

Waghorn’s strike to double the lead, and ultimately secure the three points, was his first goal since joining from Derby County in the summer. 

The 31-year-old has started four out of the club’s six opening Championship matches, forming an excellent working partnership with Gyokeres, who took his tally to three second-tier goals this season. 

Progressing through the academy at Sunderland since the age of eight, Waghorn made his debut for The Black Cats in December 2007 against Manchester United.
