Carl Baker: Scored a brace for the Sky Blues

Carl Baker scored a brace for the Sky Blues with David McGoldrick, Franck Moussa and Adam Barton adding the other goals in an impressive second-half display at Victoria Park.

It was the first time City had ever won an away league game 5-0, and their first-ever win at Hartlepool.

It was also their biggest away win since a 6-1 thrashing of Walsall at the Bescot Stadium in January 2004.

It was the first time Coventry had scored five in a league game since April 2008, while McGoldrick equalled Clarrie Bourton's record of scoring in five consecutive away games.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
