Coventry City 1-1 Bradford City

Coventry City v Bradford City
Frank Nouble has scored five goals in 25 games this season

Struggling Coventry City remain winless under new manager Tony Mowbray after drawing with FA Cup quarter-finalists Bradford City.

Frank Nouble put the Sky Blues in front at the end of the first half when he tapped in Aaron Phillips's low cross.

The Bantams, who face an FA Cup last-eight replay against Reading next Monday, drew level through a wonderful free-kick from Mark Yeates.

Nick Proschwitz had the chance to win it for the hosts but poked wide.

The draw means Coventry move two points clear of the bottom four in League One but have played a game more than 21st-placed Leyton Orient.

Bradford, who would have gone up to sixth with a victory, sit ninth, one point outside the play-off places.
