Marc McNulty grabs 15th goal of the season as Coventry beat Cambridge

Marc McNulty was on target again as Coventry continued their League Two promotion push by beating Cambridge 3-1.

The on-song striker notched his 15th goal of the season as the Sky Blues recorded their seventh successive home win.

Jordan Shipley and Michael Doyle scored either side of George Taft’s consolation to wrap up the hosts’ first win over the U’s in 31 years, and move them to within one point of an automatic promotion spot.

Shaun Derry’s U’s are stuck in a bit of a rut and have not won a game since the turn of the year.

And they were behind after just 10 minutes when McNulty caressed his effort from the edge of the box into the bottom corner.

Devon Kelly-Evans smashed the side netting when trying to make it two, before Shipley did add the second. Kelly-Evans’ cross was flicked on by McNulty with Shipley dutifully finishing the team move off by heading past David Forde on the half hour.

Defender Taft headed home late on before Doyle hit the third after Maxime Biamou’s pull back.
