Addicks Held by Sky Blues
The Ricoh Arena
29/09/07 - 15:00
The Addicks extended their unbeaten run to six matches, but had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw against former Addicks boss Iain Dowie, now in charge of Coventry.
The Addicks looked like claiming all three points until a late equaliser denied us, but it should have been more really. Michael Mifsud had hit the post but Luke Varney appeared to have been denied a penalty after a challenge from Ben Turner.
The Sky Blues had been guilty of missing chances, but we looked like we might get away with it until Michael Mifsud scored with time running out, but even then a diving header from Chris Iwelumo should have won it for the Addicks at the death, but he put wide.
The Addicks were ahead through Lloyd Sam, 15 minutes, when he drilled his first ever Championship goal in for the club low into the corner.
Chances came and went, moslty for the Sky Blues, and a strong penalty appeal from Luke Varney waved away before the pressure finally told and Michael Mifsud, 84 minutes, struck the equaliser, for his third goal of the week.
