The staff behind the scenes at the Ricoh Arena ensured that Coventry's Championship clash with Barnsley survived the big freeze.
And a lukewarm performance on the pitch gave the Sky Blues their third straight home win that eased any relegation worries the club had a month ago.
Chris Coleman was probably regretting the fact that staff had worked through the night to get the game on when his side made a sloppy start to the match and could have been two down in the first five minutes.

Further poor defending allowed Jon Macken to pull a goal back for Barnsley at the start of the second half and Mark Robins' team had further chances to draw level.
