It's time to take a look back at the second month of the season, as the Sky Blues remained unbeaten during the month of September.

The month started with the first Leasing.com Trophy game of the season, with ended goalless, with City winning the resulting penalty shoot-out to earn a bonus point.

Next up was the first League One fixture of September and it was another three points for the Sky Blues at St Andrew's against Blackpool, but they had to do it the hard way.

The Sky Blues fell 2-0 down inside the first 38 minutes of the game, after Blackpool's Sullay Kaikai scored a brace for the visitors.

However, City fought back in the last five minutes before the break and got themselves back on level terms through Wesley Jobello's first goal for the club and Matty Godden's third.

The Sky Blues controlled the second half, but had to bide their time until the 90th minute, when up stepped Callum O'Hare to score his first goal for the club and secure three points.

Mark Robins side were on the road next time out and it was Burton Albion which was the destination, in what would ultimately end goalless.

The point did however send City top of League One for the first time in the 2019/20 season.

City would end the month with back-to-back scheduled home fixtures aganst AFC Wimbledo and Doncaster Rovers.

The Sky Blues fell behind to the Dons during the opening of the game, but were back on level terms through Jordy Hiwula's strike before the break.

And yet again, it was another 90th minute winner for the Sky Blues, this time coming from another on-loan midfielder, in the form of Liam Walsh.

In the final game of the month, City fell behind when Ben Whiteman scored for Darren Moore's Doncaster side during the first half.

But, yet again the Sky Blues determination and fight, which would be seen throughout the season came through and Amadou Bakayoko came off the bench to score his first league goal of the season and earn the Sky Blues a point.
