Coventry   1 - 1   Leicester

Coventry v Leicester

Coventry 1-1 Leicester

Leicester substitute Martyn Waghorn's second-half goal cancelled out Sammy Clingan's earlier effort for Coventry, to earn the visitors a point.

Clingan gave Coventry the lead just before the break with an unstoppable free-kick into the top corner.

Waghorn levelled on 71 minutes, beating goalkeeper Keiren Westwood from the edge of the box.

Leon Best and Clinton Morrison had shots blocked and Leicester's Jack Hobbs headed wide as the sides pressed.

Leicester goalkeeper Chris Weale twice denied Aron Gunnarsson in the first half, while Paul Gallagher almost put Leicester ahead with a curling shot that struck the crossbar on 21 minutes.

Gallagher then handled and Clingan scored from the resulting free-kick, while Elliott Ward shot wide soon afterwards as Coventry looked to put daylight between themselves and their visitors.

The introduction of Waghorn, on loan from Sunderland, and Steve Howard on the hour paid dividends for the Foxes as the striker combined with his fellow substitute to level the scores.


Coventry manager Chris Coleman: "Sammy was caught late and was off the pitch when we conceded but what can we do?

"We don't know how bad the injury is yet - we need to see it when the swelling goes down, but it's quite badly bruised.

"We're disappointed because we wanted to win the game and the one time we've knocked off defensively from the second phase we've been punished.

"You know what derby games are like - all form goes out the window - but it was a good game.

"We didn't get the three points but we were against a tough team and I was happy with the response from the players."

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson:

"We have a strong bench and we really did feel that we could win the game.

"It made the game more open because they had chances but it worked.

"Martyn's finish was fantastic. He is a young player who will only gain from his experience of coming to us.

"I thought it was an enjoyable encounter because both sides were trying to win it and had a good go, but I felt that we were the better side."
