[09 OCT 01] COVENTRY CITY MATCH REPORT - WORTHINGTON CUP - 3RD ROUND
Coventry City (0) 0
Chelsea (0) 2

Coventry dropped out of the Worthington Cup after top flight Chelsea bagged two goals in the second half.

Roland Nilsson's unbeaten run as caretaker manager came to an end on the eve of his confirmation in the permanent post. Defeat by a classy Chelsea team brought a stark reminder of the gap between Premiership and Nationwide status.
