Coventry City extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to five games by sweeping aside Rotherham 3-1 at St Andrew’s.
Tyler Walker set up Max Biamou for the opener and tucked home the second after Callum O’Hare hit the post, all inside the opening 12 minutes.
Leo Ostigard’s second-half header sealed the points for Coventry before Daniel Barlaser claimed a late consolation from the penalty spot for the visitors.
The Sky Blues’ margin of victory could have been even wider as Frenchman Biamou hit the upright with an acrobatic effort and Walker was also denied a second by a fine Jamal Blackman save.
Victory left Coventry in 19th, six points clear of the bottom three, but 20th-placed Rotherham are just two points above the drop zone after a sixth loss in eight games.
Here’s what Sky Blues fans made of the win on Twitter.
Stuart Wiggins: Unbeaten in 5 league games. @Coventry_City settling in to this higher level league nicely.
Dan Bartlett: Hasn’t Biamou really stepped up to the mark since he’s been given a chance. I doubted he could make the grade at this level but he’s upped his game massively. What a guy
Cameron Cairns: Max Biamou has been my surprise package this season. At the start of the season he was 4th in the pecking order. With his future in doubt. When he gets his chance he’s shown he can hold his own at Championship level and is even chipping in with a few. Great work.
George Baker: A crucial 3 points today. We seem to be building some real momentum at the perfect time ahead of some very winnable matches. Some real standout performances, Biamou and Kelly in particular. Hamer, Walker and Ostigard once again proving to be brilliant signings
