On this day 14 years ago, Coventry City were victors in the M69 derby, with a 3-1 win at Filbert Street.

To commemorate the day, Covonthebox has highlights of the memorable derby win which you can see below!

Craig Bellamy scored after just a minute from close range before Ade Akinbiyi equalised for the hosts against the run of play.

The second goal came from a rather unexpected source, as Lee Carsley powered in a wonderful header from Barry Quinn's cross to restore the advantage before Hartson's second-half header secured a great day for the Sky Blue Army in Leicester.
