Leicester City's automatic promotion ambitions suffered a blow after the Foxes were held to a draw by Coventry.
The visitors took the lead with their first real attack, when Marlon King's shot went through the hands of Foxes goalkeeper Ricardo and into the net.
Leicester drew level on the stroke of half-time through Kyle Naughton's spectacular strike.
Coventry defender Martin Cranie was sent off late for a second yellow card, but the Sky Blues held on.
The Foxes dominated the early stages and twice went close through Yakubu.
First the Nigerian striker pounced on the ball after a defensive mix-up and was closed down by Coventry keeper Keiren Westwood, then he scuffed a shot wide after being fed by Naughton.
Leicester were made to pay soon after when King was afforded a shot at goal after good work down the right by Lukas Jutkiewicz.
His effort was straight at Ricardo, but the Portuguese let it slip into the corner of his net.
King could have had a second when he skipped round the on-rushing keeper and missed the target, while Ricardo went some way to redeeming himself with a one-handed save from a Jutkiewicz effort.
Leicester were denied a penalty when Yakubu went to ground after taking the ball past Westwood, but they were level at the break thanks to Naughton's strike.
The on-loan Tottenham full-back burst into the area and finished into the top corner with his supposedly weaker left foot.
Chances were at a premium in the second period, but Naughton continued to pose a threat down the Leicester right.
King missed the target with a free header and Patrick Van Aanholt blazed over for the hosts before Cranie received his second booking for a foul on Martyn Waghorn.
