Millwall 1 Coventry City 1, League One, Game 7, 10,9,16, att: 8,755

Sordell scores a goal and could have got a 2nd.

Coventry were down near the bottom with just 3 points before this game and us in a play-off spot could have went top. That didn't happen as we laboured to get anything from this game. Once again we were better 2nd half but nowhere near a performance that may have got us the three points, we may have fluked it if we had a bit more luck but even that was lacking.

Keep plodding away

Coventry got off light and so did their supporters as the ground was as threatening as Dulwich Hamlet. I think I heard a gentle clap from the Cold Blow Lane end and one or two abusing the linesman for his constant off-side flag. I cannot add much more apart from Steve Morison's ball to Aiden O;Brien was spot on and the finish was superb.

I hope this is right I have checked it twice, our last defeat at home in a league game was a 2-0 defeat against Scunthorpe on the 16-2-16 so we must be doing something right and I think I know what it is. "A dogged resolve to keep plodding away and a desire not to be beaten.
