Doncaster   1 - 1   Coventry

Highlights - Doncaster 1-1 Coventry

Doncaster 1-1 Coventry

James Hayter's late equaliser earned Doncaster a valuable point against fellow strugglers Coventry.

With two minutes of normal time remaining Hayter grabbed his ninth of the season when he eased into the area before beating keeper Michael Quirke.

Coventry took the lead when Freddy Eastwood tucked home when he converted Gary McSheffrey's square ball.

City also went close when Gary Woods parried Lukas Jutkiewicz's powerful header over his bar.

Woods also comfortably saved a shot from McSheffrey, while Aron Gunnarsson hit a drive which grazed the crossbar.

The hosts had an opportunity to restore parity before the break. Nathan Cameron fouled Billy Sharp within striking range of goal but Coppinger, making his 250th appearance for the club, blazed his free-kick over the crossbar.

Quirke did well to cling on to Hayter's swerving strike before a James Coppinger effort rebounded off the rookie keeper's feet.

The draw moves Rovers to nine points above the drop zone while City are seven points clear with a game in hand over the Yorkshire side.
