Chris Coleman's side maintained their excellent start to 2009 by winning three of their four league fixtures and remaining unbeaten throughout February. They began the month with an impressive victory against league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers before securing a solid point away at Burnley. They continued their fine run with back-to-back wins over Birmingham City and Norwich City to an impressive month by moving to within striking distance of the Play-Off places.
Chris Kamara, chairman of the Coca-Cola Manager of the Month Awards panel, said: "Chris Coleman has enjoyed an unbelievable month at Coventry. To beat the top two in the Championship in the manner in which they did was a fantastic achievement and underlines the progress the club are making. The whole of Coventry is buzzing on the back of their recent results and if the Sky Blues can continue their winning habit there is no reason why they can't muscle in on the Play-Off places come the end of the season."
