Coventry City failed to take full advantage of other results around them in the race for League Two promotion as they were held at home by Crawley.Town, who had gone seven games without a win before toppling high-flyers Exeter in midweek, almost did the same to the Sky Blues.Mark Robins’ side could have gone two points clear of Mansfield in eighth with victory after the Stags drew with Chesterfield in the early kick-off.

Coventry could have led early on had Duckens Nazon’s deflected strike hit the other side of a post.But youngster Jordan Roberts had other ideas, striking for the visitors with his weak foot just before the break.Wing-back Lewis Young put the ball on a plate for Roberts, who duly obliged by firing home, after cutting the ball back following a surging run down the right.Mark Randall nearly put the visitors 2-0 two minutes after the restart when he drove an effort against the bar before Roberts was denied a second, from a free-kick, by a great save from Lee Burge.But, with 16 minutes left, Marc McNulty nabbed his second goal in as many games to secure his side a point, finishing a great team move.Ryan Haynes played the ball in to the box before Nazon linked well to tee up McNulty to slot home on the half-turn.Report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsCoventry1Burge4Willis12DaviesBooked at 30minsSubstituted forStevensonat 45’minutes5McDonaldBooked at 90mins2Grimmer8Doyle26ShipleySubstituted forKelly-Evansat 83’minutes24HaynesBooked at 60mins10McNulty16BeavonSubstituted forPonticelliat 69’minutes18NazonSubstitutes3Stokes9Biamou13O’Brien22Kelly-Evans28Maycock31Stevenson38PonticelliCrawley1Morris2Young6Connolly15Yorwerth19Evina4Payne28CamaraSubstituted forMeiteat 76’minutes21BulmanSubstituted forDjalóat 83’minutes25RandallBooked at 3mins7BoldewijnSubstituted forMcNerneyat 84’minutes11RobertsSubstitutes3Doherty5McNerney12Mersin17Djaló22Lelan24Lewis26MeiteReferee:Craig HicksAttendance:6,381Match StatsHome TeamCoventryAway TeamCrawleyPossessionHome58%Away42%ShotsHome10Away9Shots on TargetHome2Away2CornersHome8Away3FoulsHome16Away6Live TextPosted at Match ends, Coventry City 1, Crawley Town 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+7′ Second Half ends, Coventry City 1, Crawley Town 1.Posted at 90’+5′ Foul by Devon Kelly-Evans (Coventry City).Posted at 90’+5′ Josh Yorwerth (Crawley Town) wins a free kick in the attacking half.Posted at 90’+5′ Attempt missed.
