Murphy bags a trio of goals as the Sky Blues hit Gillingham for four, watch the highlights from November's win below...

The Sky Blues climbed to their highest rank in the Football League since being relegated to the third tier in 2012, with the 4-1 win against Gillingham back in November.

City hit four goals inside 10 first-half minutes, including a hat-trick from Jacob Murphy, as they overwhelmed morning leaders Gillingham to leapfrog to the top of League One.

It took until the 34th minute before Murphy fired home left-footed from six yards before on-loan Ben Turner quickly doubled City's lead with a header.

Murphy then struck twice more inside three minutes before half-time.

Bradley Dack reduced the deficit just after the hour mark but the damage was done as Gillingham surrendered their lead and City climbed to the top of League One.

Take a look at the highlights below...
