Coventry City 0-0 Swindon Town

Reice Charles-Cook
Coventry goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook did well to deny Jonathan Obika in the second half

Coventry City missed the chance to move back into the play-off places after a dour goalless draw against Swindon.

Jonathan Obika had the best opportunity of a tame first period but he could not put the visitors ahead as he somehow shot wide from six yards.

Home goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook expertly kept out a curling Obika effort midway through the second half.

Coventry substitute Darius Henderson nearly won it in added time but his volley was saved by Tyrell Belford.

The Sky Blues, who have won just twice in 12 games, are nowe eighth, two points from a League One play-off spot.

Sky Blues boss Tony Mowbray told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire:

"The result is what it is. I thought it was a decent game of football.

"They're a decent side on a good run of form. It was frustrating that we couldn't nick it.

"We had a few chances, and a great one at the end of the game. We'll take the point and move on to the next one."
