Coventry City 1-1 Fleetwood Town

Simeon Jackson came off the bench to earn Coventry a draw against Fleetwood.

The visitors took the lead in the 19th minute when Gareth Evans' cross from the left wing was headed into his own net by Coventry defender Andy Webster.

The Sky Blues went close through Josh McQuoid, while Evans had chances to extend Fleetwood's lead.

Coventry equalised with 10 minutes remaining when Gary Madine nodded down Matthew Pennington's cross and Jackson diverted the ball in at the back post.

City have not won a league game at the Ricoh Arena since the end of October and they are now five points above the relegation zone in 17th, with Fleetwood two points and five places above them.

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire:

"I'm frustrated in the respect of the score line - I don't think it reflected our dominance.

"In the second half it was certainly one-way traffic.

"I think the attitude of the players was terrific and in the end we got the much deserved goal.

"But we're frustrated because in the end we've got to win these types of games if we're to fulfil our real aspirations."
