ON THIS DAY: The Sky Blues put five past former champions Blackburn Rovers at Highfield Road

9 December 2016

As we take a look back in the history books, Saturday 9th December 1995 marks a day to remember in City's Premier League era...

John Salako celebrated Coventry’s second win of the season with their highest-ever Premier League victory. 

Blackburn Rovers, champions just seven months previous, were on the receiving end of a 5-0 rout on a snowy pitch at Highfield Road. 

Salako, who scored the fifth, spoke to the Daily Mirror afterwards: “To outplay the champions like we did has given all of us a great boost.”
