    • FT: Cardiff 2-2 Coventry
    • 90' Cardiff 2-2 Coventry! Norwood scores a late, important equaliser for Coventry! You can't help but admire their drive - the goal's in the fourth minute of added time but it's absolutely deserved; Norwood shot from long range and scored past Marshall into the bottom left - good, good goal
    • 88' Thomas shoots wide from outside the penalty area! Coventry continue to hunt an equaliser - their heart should be admired - but it's not happening for them
    • 83' Cardiff 2-1 Coventry! How cruel on Coventry who had fought so well to get back into the game! Whittingham's missed several chances tonight but he beautifully volleyed in then with his favoured left foot; it's a really well taken goal
    • 76' Cardiff now looking the more likely to score again, this time Whittingham misses from inside the penalty area, sending his effort wide of the left post
    • 73' Positive sub from Cardiff - Lawrence off, Rob Earnshaw on...
    • 69' Cardiff 1-1 Coventry! They've done it - Coventry have equalised, and they deserve it! It was Jordan Clarke's goal after he shot from inside the penalty area into the bottom left corner. Can the away side go on and earn what appeared to be an unlikely win?
    • 63' McSheffrey hits the post now! He and Coventry have essentially done everything but score tonight; the striker continues to get into the right positions, this effort was from inside the area, but he just cannot score
    • 59' McSheffrey heads over the bar now from just inside the area following Conor Thomas' cross. Really not his day, is it?
    • 55' Marshall saves well again from Marshall, who's probably one of the most underrated goalkeepers outside of the Premier League. He owes them a goal now after that penalty miss
    • 50' Awful penalty by McSheffrey! He went for power and hit the ball both high and wide! Emblematic of Coventry's season, in reality
    • 48' Penalty for Coventry for the foul on Keogh!!
    • 47' Jordan Clarke handballs... Cardiff free-kick to be taken by Marshall
    • 46' And it's a bright start by Coventry! Nimely got into a decent position to cross for own-goalscorer McDonald, though the former Dartford man heads just wide of the left post. Coventry just need that break
    • 46' Second half underway between Cardiff and Coventry...
    • 45' HT: Cardiff 1-0 Coventry... Coventry's struggles look set to continue as Cardiff continue to threaten to add to their lead. Feel free to tweet your thoughts to @decwarrington
    • 43' Whittingham also goes close but shoots over from just outside the penalty area! Coventry hanging on again?
    • 42' Gunnarsson shots but Murphy saves well! He should have had a goal bny now but Cardiff's superior quality is causing problems for Coventry
    • 40' Encouragingly for manager Andy Thorn, Coventry are now looking the better side. They still look likely to be a goal down at half-time but the dressing room may not need as much lifting as it first appeared
    • 34' Should have been a Coventry equaliser! McSheffrey just failed to get his head onto Sammy Clingan's cross when in a great position!
    • 20:14 McPhail shoots just wide of the left upright from deep in the penalty area! Cardiff remain the dominant side; another goal before half-time could see this game turn seriously one-sided and potentially embarrassing for Coventry
    • 20:10 Cardiff are completely in control here. Any belief Coventry had appears to have diminished - not unsurprising given their league position - and look as though they're simply waiting for defeat
    • 20:09 Correction; Cardiff's goal has been ruled as an own goal by Cody McDonald
    • 20:04 Cardiff 1-0 Coventry! The away side's misery looks set to continue; Lawrence's corner is routinely headed in by Ben Turner; that should settle any nerves the home side currently have
    • 20:00 Now it's Coventry's turn to go close, with Alex Nimely shooting wide, to the right of the goal, from a decent position
    • 20:00 Decent, commanding goalkeeping there from Joe Murphy - the experienced stopper saves from Liam Lawrences cross
    • 19:58 Cardiff really should be ahead now: lovely build-up play provides a shooting opportunity for Aron Gunnarsson but he shoots wide. Good chance, that, and another warning for Coventry
    • 19:55 Free-kick to Coventry as Joe Mason's caught offside in a promising position; Joe Murphy to take...
    • 19:50 Bright start by Coventry! Long-serving Gary McSheffrey fires over! No great threat on Cardiff's goal but it's an early sign of intent from the troubled side
    • 19.29 CARDIFF: Marshall, McNaughton, Taylor, Hydson, Turner, Whittingham, Cowie, Lawrence, Gunnarsson, McPhail, Mason SUBS Heaton, Conway, Blake, Earnshaw, Gestede /// COVENTRY: Murphy, Keogh, Cranie, Clarke, Cameron, Clingan, Norwood, Thomas, McSheffrey, McDonald, Nimely SUBS Dunn, Hussey, Christie, Deegan, Platt
