Coventry City heaped more misery on Bradford City last night after beating them 4-2 at the Northern Commercials Stadium, as reported by The72. Here are five things we learned from the game-

Coventry City should be considered Play-Off contenders- The Sky Blues have now won their last four games in League One and are in great form. They are also just one point off the Play-Offs so must be considered as genuine contenders. They seem to be riding on the momentum of their promotion from League Two last season.

Conor Chaplin has a big future ahead of him- The 21-year-old joined Coventry from fellow third tier side Portsmouth in the summer and has been an instant hit at the Ricoh Arena. He scored an excellent free-kick last night to double his sides’ lead last night and set up Jordy Hiwula for the third.

Michael Doyle is so important for Coventry- If Mark Robins’ side do get themselves firmly in the Play-Off picture, Doyle has to be kept fit. His experience and know-how is so valuable for them. He breaks up play so well and his whipped corners and set-pieces cause real problems.

Bradford City are in deep trouble- The Bantams have dropped to the bottom of the league and can’t buy a win at the moment. They played some decent football at times yesterday but their defensive frailties are evident. Conceding four goals at home is relegation stuff.

Is David Hopkins under pressure already?- The former Livingston boss replaced Michael Collins in September but has struggled to make an impact so far at Bradford. If their current poor form continues, their fans will start getting on his back.
