Bristol City   1 - 1   Coventry

 Bristol City 1-1 Coventry

Bristol City 1-1 Coventry

David Clarkson's late goal denied Coventry victory after David Bell had opened the scoring for the visitors.

Highly rated Coventry goalkeeper Keiren Westwood kept out Jamie McAllister's left-foot strike with his feet as the home side pressed for the opener.

Coventry, quiet in the first half, scored when Bell lashed home after the Robins had failed to clear their lines.

The home side then spurned a host of chances before Louis Carey found Clarkson, who rifled in the equaliser.


Bristol City boss Gary Johnson:

"In the end we did more than enough to win.

"There were plenty of opportunities as the game went on and we didn't quite show the quality to take them.

"We lost Jamal Campbell-Ryce in the warm-up and made a late change, with Evander Sno. You can do without that."

Coventry boss Chris Coleman:
"They were better than us in the first half and we had to switch from 4-4-2 to match their five in midfield.

"But they didn't cause us that many problems and in the end we might easily have nicked it in the closing minutes."

"I thought Freddy Eastwood and Clinton Morrison did a lot of unselfish running off the ball today."
