The race to become kings of the Johnstone's Paint Pot Challenge has gathered pace after two more npower League 1 clubs put their skills to the test.

Sheffield United and Coventry City followed Doncaster Rovers in taking part in the unique challenge, which is designed to test the accuracy of the most competent footballer.

Players try to chip a ball from the corner of the 18-yard box into an inflatable paint pot on the edge of the six-yard box.

Each club has 10 attempts with 10 points scored for the ball going directly in the paint pot and one point accumulated for each time it is brushed.

And Coventry have set a stiff target for their rivals to chase after an excellent display saw them rack up 25 points and storm to the top of the leaderboard.

Nathan Cameron and Callum Ball executed perfect attempts to boost the Sky Blues' tally.

Doncaster Rovers remain in second place on 14 points with Sheffield United third on 11, George Long securing a maximum point haul for the Blades from his attempt.

"Coventry have got a proud tradition over a number of years and maintained that with a tremendous performance in the Paint Pot Challenge," said Megan Esmond, Marketing Manager for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

"A score of 25 points is a tough target for all the other clubs to aim for but I'm sure they will relish the challenge.

"Sheffield United is a club with a huge history and following, so it's fantastic that they agreed to take part to help the Johnstone's Paint Trophy engage with as many people as possible."

The eventual challenge champions will win £2,000 worth of Johnstone's Paint product, with the teams that finish second and third claiming £1,000 and £500 worth of Johnstone's Paint product respectively.
