Norwich 1-2 Coventry

Norwich slipped further into relegation trouble as they suffered a home defeat at the hands of Coventry City.

David Bell somehow headed wide before Coventry took the lead, Bell lofting the ball into the box and Jordan Henderson smashing the ball home.

Mark Fotheringham forced a fine save from Kieran Westwood but Jonathan Grounds then slotted in a leveller.

Clinton Morrison shot wide but Coventry won it when Daniel Fox rifled in an unstoppable 20-yard left-foot shot.

Norwich manager Bryan Gunn:
"I'm concentrating on the referee again, because it has cost us points. The handball shout against Stephen Wright was a stone-wall penalty - but it has not been given.

"It's really frustrating because I got the reaction I wanted after half-time.

"Unfortunately it didn't go our way. We've had a lot of bad luck recently, and that is another example."

Coventry boss Chris Coleman on a possible play-off push:
"It's not going to be easy but it's certainly not impossible.

"The points difference is certainly not insurmountable. Often at this stage of the season a team comes from nowhere with a late run - so why not Coventry?

"Two league wins on the trot is a great boost for us, and now we have to keep this run going."
