Coventry 1-1 Leicester
Coventry came from behind to earn a point at home to Leicester in a fiercely-contested Midlands derby.

The Foxes took an early lead when Richard Stearman superbly volleyed in Iain Hume's cross from 18 yards.

Soon after Stern John equalised, the Trinidadian slamming the ball home after a pass from Jamie Scowcroft.

Leicester's Patrick Kisnorbo was sent off for a two-footed foul on Andy Whing before Coventry nearly won it at the end when Dennis Wise hit the bar.


  • Coventry manager Micky Adams on Kisnorbo's tackle:
    "It was disgraceful. He deserved a straight red and anyone who tries to defend it has got it wrong.

    "It was two-footed over the top of the ball. There was no attempt to play the ball at all and I was disappointed.

    "It was a local derby and it was competitive and he was playing a blinder but he spoiled his afternoon."

  • Leicester boss Rob Kelly:
    "It was a bad tackle but mis-timed rather than malicious.

    "I know Patrick Kisnorbo and he would never seek to deliberately hurt anyone - you could see that by his immediate reaction because he tried to help.

    "But he's a good player and a good person who's already held his hands up and admitted he got it wrong."
