Sunday People - Rangers are Harf way to to the drop
Lee Corden - Coventry 1 QPR 0

Coventry continued their good run of form to condemn crisis club Queens Park Rangers to yet another defeat.

Chris Coleman's team were far from pretty but Gary Deegan's early goal moved them up to 10th in the Championship and leaves Rangers still searching for a win under Mick Harford.

And the QPR manager admitted that he was under increasing pressure as speculation is rife about his future as Rangers boss, with Crystal Palace chief Neil Warnock favourite to take over.

"We are very disappointed with the defeat," said Harford. "You run out of words to say when you are on a run like this because you don't get the rub of the green.

"You are always under pressure as a manager. You are judged on results. I would prefer to play poorly and win, that's what we need to do at the moment. All I can do is affect what happens on the football pitch and on the training ground. What happens beyond that is out of my control."

Coventry have lost only once in the league since the turn of the year and Coleman said they could finally look up rather than down as the season enters the final straight.


He said: "I anticipated that it wasn't going to be a classic but we got the job done. It was one of those games where we had to grind it out and the lads did that.

"It puts us within six points of the top six and eight points off the bottom three so we are moving in the right direction."

Chances were few and far between before the break and the home side scored with the first real shot on goal after 10 minutes.

Deegan latched on to a second ball on the edge of the QPR area and fired into the bottom corner with the help of a deflection.

The Irishman, who signed for Coventry from Bohemians in the January transfer window, was the star of the show as he made a series of strong tackles in midfield and came close again but saw his effort blocked by Peter Ramage.

Rangers rarely troubled keeper Keiren Westwood in the first half but there was a bit more purpose about them in the second period. That said, the toughest save for the highly-rated shot-stopper was when he had to push a header clear from his own centreback Leon Barnett in the 71st minute.

Coventry City: Westwood 7 - Wright 6, Barnett 7, Wood 7, Cranie 6 - Baker 6, *DEEGAN 8, Clingan 7, McIndoe 7 - Eastwood 6, Morrison 7 (Sears, 67mins, 6).

Qpr: Ikeme 6 - Ramage 7, Stewart 6, Gorkss 7, Hill 6 - Buzsaky 6 (Taarabt, 67mins, 6), Connelly 6, Faurlin 6, *COOK 7 - Simpson 7, Priskin 5 (German, 55mins, 6).
Referee: D Foster 6. People
