Coventry 2-2 Wolves
Coventry twice came from behind to earn a thrilling draw at Highfield Road.

Wolves took a first-half lead thanks to Leon Clarke's header but were pegged back when Gary McSheffrey converted the penalty he won from Lee Naylor's foul.

With just over 10 minutes left, Naylor looked to have made up for his error when his shot deflected off Steve Staunton and past Luke Steele.

But Stern John's determined run and finish condemned Wolves to their 22nd draw of the season.

  • Coventry boss Micky Adams:
    "I'm delighted because I think for us to have come away with nothing would have been a travesty.

    "I could even make a case for saying we deserved all three points - all in all we've done well against a good side.

    "We had people in there doing jobs they weren't used to because Wolves play this diamond formation and it would have been nice to match them."

  • Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:

    "It was a stupid mistake by Ki-HyeonSeol which cost us.

    "I praise him highly when he does well, but he's got to learn he can't play flicky-flicky football at that time in the game and in that position.

    "We've given the ball away in a dangerous position and conceded a goal which should never have happened."
