McNulty grabs a hat-trick as Coventry go goal crazy at Cheltenham

Marc McNulty scored a hat-trick as Coventry City kept their play-off destiny in their own hands with a thumping 6-1 win at Cheltenham Town.
Lee Burge parried a shot from Mohamed Eisa in the ninth minute, but Coventry soon took complete control.
Tom Bayliss scored the first after a neat free-kick ended with Jordan Shipley supplying the cross that was well finished in the 11th minute.
McNulty headed in the second from a Jack Grimmer cross in the 27th minute.
A low ball in from Maxime Biamou was dummied by McNulty and Shipley fired in to make it 3-0 in the 38th minute.
It was 4-0 two minutes before half-time as McNulty lifted the ball over goalkeeper Scott Flinders after Jordan Willis' ball forward.
Cheltenham pulled one back in the 58th minute from a penalty after Eisa was brought down by Burge.
Eisa converted from the spot for his 23rd League Two goal of the season.
But Biamou's stunning overhead kick from McNulty's cross made it 5-1 in the 74th minute and McNulty completed his hat-trick with another fine finish four minutes later.
