Coventry caretaker manager Andy Thorn was full of praise for his players after they beat play-off chasers Millwall 2-1 at the Ricoh Arena.
Marlon King's early strike for the Sky Blues was levelled on the stroke of half-time by Andros Townsend. Lions substitute Neil Harris was then sent off for an off-the-ball incident with Aron Gunnarsson less than two minutes after coming on and City made the most of the man advantage when King popped up with the winner six minutes from time.
Thorn said: "We knew it was going to be difficult because they're a good side.
"I have just said to the boys that we have had games against Watford, Portsmouth and Burnley, who are all chasing promotion and are where I feel we should be.
"I think this group of players is the best group of players the club has had since we got relegated.
"They have got belief in themselves and if handled correctly and looked after, we can be as successful as everybody wants to be at this football club."
