Coventry   0 - 1   Derby

Coventry 0-1 Derby

Coventry 0-1 Derby

Shaun Barker's 20th-minute goal makes Derby all but safe in the Championship but more than likely ends Coventry's faint play-off ambitions.

Barker's left-footed strike from a Michael Tonge corner was ruled over the line before Coventry hooked it clear.

Coventry started brightly and had a clutch of chances in the second half, but were denied a last-gasp equaliser.

Substitute Chris Hussey's effort was ruled out after a discussion between referee Andy D'Urso and his assistant.


Coventry manager Chris Coleman:

"Maybe Mr D'Urso will tell you why he disallowed the goal.

"I am sure he will say it was an infringement from Clinton Morrison. Nobody has touched it and it has gone straight into the back of the net. We didn't deserve to lose the game.

"I promise you that next week there will be a goal like that in another game which is given. All I want is consistency.

"There's one or two crucial decisions in games and video analysis could show you in 10 seconds. It would not hold the game up and it would take pressure off the referee. At the moment everyone is in limbo."

Derby manager Nigel Clough told BBC Radio Derby:

"We deserved it today. The clean sheets and the resilience we are showing gives us a platform to work on.

"Every effort we have got goes into Monday, if we can get that three points then we should be safe."
