Numbers game: Coventry City (H)

We break down the statistics from City's opening Sky Bet Championship win over Coventry City.

Dean Holden's side beat the League One champions 2-1 on Saturday, thanks to goals from Jamie Paterson and Tomas Kalas.

City had 100% possession before Paterson scored after just 20 seconds. However, Coventry grew in confidence and Matt Godden equalised with the Sky Blues on top.

The Robins fought back in the second half though and had captain Kalas to thank with an 82nd-minute finish as he touched home Paterson's corner, gifting Holden's group the three points at the first time of asking.
