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

The Sky Blues eased past Gillingham to send them to the top of League One, with a 4-1 win at the Ricoh. 

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...
