Coventry City made it five wins out of five with a 2-1 win over Doncaster Rovers.
On a cold wet afternoon at the Ricoh Arena, the Sky Blues, took on Doncaster Rovers, looking for a fifth consecutive victory.
Jordan Willis came back into the side in place of Dominic Hyam for City with Cov Kid Matty Blair making his 100th appearance for Rovers.
Michael Doyle, no stranger to racking up appearances had City's first chance in the fourth minute, with a 20 yarder that Marosi pushed over for a corner.
Another was won in the tenth minute with two for Doncaster who were keen on the petty fouls and kicking the ball away.
Marosi made his second good save from a free kick and Rovers had two more corners with the second being met by the head of Tom Anderson in the 18th minute.
Two minutes later and City took the lead when a free kick from Doyle was cleared as far as Jordy Hiwula who blasted it into the net for his third goal in three games and City's first goal in a first half in a home league fixture this season.
Both sets of supporters remembered the season ticket holder Stuart Richards sadly killed on the M40 with a minute's applause whilst City continued to push forward with Hiwula and Clarke-Harris, who again worked his socks off, causing problems.
In the 40th minute, it was two for the Sky Blues when Luke Thomas created some space and hit a lovely shot into the net.

Into the second half and Doncaster had the early play against a City side which kept up the work rate and had Chaplin, Hiwula and Clarke-Harris doing plenty of running with Dujon Sterling had another good game as did Jordan Willis.
Tom Bayliss made way for Liam Kelly in the 63rd minute amid a spell of pressure for the visitors who scored in the 68th minute thanks to Joe Wright being allowed room to fire into the net.
Jodi Jones came on for Conor Chaplin for the last nineteen plus minutes in a game that was finely poised.
Jones curled over in the 79th minute from a free kick for a City side that made their final change in the 80th minute.
Doncaster, who are a decent side, caused a few problems late on but City held on for the win thanks to a great save from Lee Burge and clearance from Junior Brown in stoppage time.
