Coventry City 1-2 Swansea City: Jamie Paterson and Joel Piroe end Sky Blues' unbeaten home run

Last update on. From the section Championship
After scoring Swansea's sixth goal of the season, Jamie Paterson goes wild celebrating.

Joel Piroe and Jamie Paterson were both on target as Swansea City ended Coventry City’s unbeaten home record at the Championship.

Swansea was led by Paterson, who swung the ball in their favor before Piroe's deflected shot made it 2:0 within 12 minutes.

Coventry was led back by Kyle McFadzean, but Swansea won their fourth game in five.

Russell Martin's Swansea side, which is in great form, climbs to 10th place in the table while Coventry remains fourth.

Mark Robins' team failed to close the gap on top two teams as Swansea won anaway league game for only second time under Martin. However, the Welsh club had to work hard for victory as Coventry improved from their desperate start.

Since their return to the CBS Arena after two years in Birmingham, The Sky Blues have proven to be a formidable force on their own turf.

But Swansea was in their best form, and it was the visitors that impressed the most from the beginning.

Swansea scored their first attack of any note. Jake Clarke-Salter couldn't clear Jake Bidwell’s cross to Paterson.

Kyle McFadzean (centre), headed in his second goal for the season to bring Coventry back into this game

Coventry-born forward, linked to a move to his hometown club before joining Swansea this August, stayed cool to seize his opportunity. He steered in a shot that crept in the post despite Simon Moore's touch.

The sixth goal by Paterson of the season was quickly followed by Piroe’s 10th. Olivier Ntcham then sent Ethan Laird charging down the right flank.

Laird may have been fouled when he turned and fell in the box. However, the penalty appeal was not granted as Piroe took advantage of the loose ball and saw his shot hit the net. Clarke-Salter attempted to block but failed.

Coventry showed admirable response, with Viktor Gyokeres being denied by Ben Hamer before McFadzean rose to the far post to return home strongly from Gustavo Hamer’s corner.

Paterson's drive earned Moore a fingertip save, but Coventry threatened first following the break when Fankaty Dabo's attempt was blocked.

Swansea's pressing game made it difficult for Swansea during the second period. However, Martin's team nearly extended their lead when Matt Grimes' corner was pushed against the bar by Bidwell.

McFadzean tried to counter with another header, but it bounced wide. Hamer then swung away Dabo's last long-ranger to make sure Swansea was within one point of the top six.
