Deportivo La Coruna 1-1 Valencia

Lucas Perez playing for Deportivo la Coruna against Valencia
Lucas Perez scored in seven consecutive games for Deportivo earlier this season

Gary Neville is still looking for his first La Liga win as Valencia boss but saw his side earn a point at Deportivo La Coruna thanks to Alvaro Negredo's late goal.

Lucas Perez looked as though he had given Deportivo a first win in seven games as he slotted home his 14th goal of the season after 27 minutes.

Ex-Manchester City striker Negredo had earlier missed a great chance.

He scored with an injury-time header but Neville is winless in seven games.

The former Manchester United defender and current England coach has taken Valencia into the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey but the club's 10-match winless run in La Liga is their longest for 30 years.

However, thanks to Negredo's seventh goal of the season Neville has overseen only two league losses and his side remain in mid-table.
