Coventry 0-0 Leicester
Coventry were held at home by Leicester as they adapted to Championship life without winger Gary McSheffrey.

Following McSheffrey's 4m move to Birmingham, Coventry struggled to create chances, though Don Hutchison's first-half free-kick did hit the post.

Leicester also lacked a cutting edge in front of goal, with Josh Low showing a lack of composure on 15 minutes.

Late on Andy Marshall beat away Iain Hume's powerful shot, while Leicester were troubled by a Colin Cameron cross.


  • Coventry manager Micky Adams
    "I told the players that Gary McSheffrey has been a great player for us but we need a new hero and that we needed someone else to step up and be that man.

    "We are in no rush to sign someone before the transfer window closes because we can get someone on loan and then spend the money in January if we need to.

    "There are funds there but the kitty is far less than the 4m."

  • Leicester City manager Rob Kelly
    "I am pleased with our last two performances especially after the first two games.

    "I thought we played well in the first half and then had to show the other side of our game in the second period.

    "Our players showed they were up for the challenge and didn't shirk a single thing and that is pleasing after the disappointment of the first couple of matches."
