Coventry City’s unbeaten start to the season came to end on Saturday, as they were thrashed 4-0 by Rotherham, writes JIM TATUM.

Braces from Matt Crooks and Michael Smith gave the hosts a thumping victory.

Crooks and Smith both scored one in the first half, before Kyle McFadzean was given his marching orders.

The pair went on to score another goal each to seal Rotherham’s first win in four games and move them up to 13th in the table.

City manager, Mark Robins, was rueful of his side’s poor performance.

He said: “The game has a habit of kicking you in the teeth and it’s certainly given us a swift kick today.

“I said in the dressing room that I could go in and kick everyone because it’s embarrassing.

"It’s embarrassing sat there watching us miss chances and concede goals and not do the things that have got us to where we are at the minute.

“We can’t allow that to happen like that again.”

Ipswich are now clear leaders at the top of League One, following their 1-0 win away to Fleetwood Town.

Blues manager, Paul Lambert, hailed his side after the win, which sent them four points clear at the top, with a game in hand on second place Wycombe.

Lambert said: “I thought we were excellent the whole game.

“We should have put the game to bed, we should have been three or four up. The two penalties were bizarre, the drop ball here was incredible and then where did the six minutes come from at the end?

"Fleetwood have been going well, but we have a different pressure to Fleetwood. You see the stadium today, everywhere we go it's like a cup game - but we're rising to it.”

Kayden Jackson struck the only goal of the game in the second half for the Blues, who received a late red card for James Wilson in stoppage time, but held on for the win.

Elsewhere, pressure continues to mount on Sunderland boss, Jack Ross, as they were beaten 2-0 by Lincoln, leaving them eight points off the top spot.

An own goal from Jon McLaughlin and a second half Tyler Walker strike condemned the Black Cats and left several fans calling for Ross’s head.

Wycombe hosted Peterborough in the game of the weekend, which ended in six goals being shared between the two in-form sides.

Posh flew into a two-goal lead at half-time, through Mohamed Eisa and Josh Knight, before Wanderers rallied back in the second half with Adebayo Akinfenwa and a Christy Pym own goal drawing them level.

Wycombe were behind again, through United’s Ivan Toney and had Curtis Thompson dismissed, before Akinfenwa struck a dramatic equaliser from the penalty spot in the 95th minute.
