  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Coventry City
    • Scunthorpe United
    • 90+3' FULL TIME! And it's all over in Coventry too! Scunthorpe had a real go at Coventry today, but just stopped short of securing the win that would have moved them to within a point of safety
    • 89' Hearts in mouths for Coventry, as Scunthorpe tryr to hit the hosts on the counter! Cranie does just enough to break down the move, but there could be some late drama here!
    • 88' SCUNTHORPE SUBS: Michael Collins and Chris Dagnall off, Michael O'Connor and Lee Miller on
    • 85' McIndoe pings a ball into the box to KING! King just can't reach it! The hosts are really pressing for a winner here!
    • 83' Jordan Clarke races free with an overlapping run, before SQUARING TO KING IN THE BOX! KING FIRES OVER THE BAR FROM POINT-BLANK RANGE!
    • 82' No, in short. King receives the ball and races towards the box, but his eventual shot is charged down
    • 81' Gunnarsson move infield to find Clingan, who in turn finds Cranie. Decent spell of passing from Coventry; will there be an end product though?
    • 77' COVENTRY SUB: Chris Hussey off, Richard Wood on
    • 76' Nunez has another crack for Scunthorpe, but the ball flies wide. Hussey, meanwhile, looks to be in some trouble for the hosts, and might not be able to continue!
    • 75' Scunthorpe, meanwhile, are getting right back on top against Coventry with a quarter of an hour left! Duffy takes a corner for the visitors, which is nodded clear for a throw
    • 66' Bell races clear again for Coventry, AND HE FORCES A TREMENDOUS SAVE FROM MURPHY! But the linesman's flag is already up for offside
    • 64' King forces a decent save from Murphy with a fierce shot, but the keeper spills the ball! It falls to FREDDY EASTWOOD WHO MIS-HITS IT FROM SIX YARDS OUT! What a miss that is for the substitute (just on for Jutkiewicz)!
    • 62' Gunnarsson and Bell exchange passes on the left, before finding McIndoe. McIndoe then tries to slip a ball through to Hussey, but the limp ball is easily cut out. The game has gone a little stale here...
    • 56' The ball is swept in to Duffy in the box, but the Scunny midfielder heads straight at Westwood! That's another good chance for the visitors
    • 54' There's 16,000 fands in the Ricoh today, and they should have witnessed Scunthorpe take the lead then!
    • 53' Westwood comes to claim a cross, and he flaps at it! The ball falls to DAGNALL AT THE FAR POST WHO SOMEHOW TURNS THE BALL JUST WIDE!
    • 46' COVENTRY SUB: Carl Baker off, Michael McIndoe on
    • - OptaJoe on Twitter: 'None of Scunthorpe’s last 12 league games have ended in a draw, the current longest run of its kind in the Championship.'
    • 45' HALF TIME! It could be 4-4 at the Ricoh Arena, but both sides go into the dressing rooms having scored a single goal apiece. Very entertaining match, and still everything to play for in the second half!
    • 45' Gunnarsson tries his luck for Coventry with a super strike, but Joe Murphy saves well
    • 39' Well, that's changed things in Coventry! The hosts have been on top for most of the half, but they've paid the price for failing to stay tight to their men
    • 38' GOOOOAL! SCUNTHORPE DRAW LEVEL! Nunez is given too much space, and fires a shot at Coventry's goal. It takes a huge deflection off Martin Cranie on its way past Westwood, who had no chance. It's 1-1 at the Ricoh!
    • 35' Nunez picks out Marcus Williams on the left, who swings in a perfect ball to DAGNALL! The Scunthorpe striker fails to test Westwood, but that's another warning for Coventry!
    • 32' Nunez finds Grant up top, but the Scunthorpe striker can't find space to shoot with a sea of sky blue shirts surrounding him. Keogh eventually hacks the ball clear for Coventry
    • 25' Scunthorpe back in possession, but they're struggling to make much happen. Ramon Nunez does find some space on the right though, and HE PICKS OUT BOBBY GRANT IN FRONT OF GOAL! SAVED BY WESTWOOD'S BOOT! What a chance for Scunthorpe, they should be level!
    • 23' Aron Gunnarsson finds Carl Baker on the edge of the box, who in turn picks out Sammy Clingan. Good passing from the hosts, but Scunthorpe are holding them off well. The ball comes back to Richard Keogh, who SHOOTS FROM 40 YARDS OUT AND SKIMS THE TOP OF THE CROSSBAR! What a fabulous effort that was, and close to putting Coventry two-goals up
    • 20' Coventry are still in cruise control, and look capable of creating something pretty much every time they get the ball! Scunthorpe have managed a couple of balls into the box from wide positions, but they're not looking likely to force that vital away win at the moment
    • 12' King slips a ball into the box for Lukas Jutkiewicz! Jutkiewicz struggles to get the ball under control, though, and Andy Hughes comes across to clear the ball! The fans want a penalty, but it looked like Jutkiewicz fell over his own feet
    • 11' The Sky Blues fail to make anything happen from the throw, and Scunthorpe regain possession. They try to hold onto it and force Coventry to do the chasing, but an eventual cross from the right goes all the way out
    • 10' King plays forwards to Bell, who wins a throw deep in Scunthorpe's half
    • 6' That's a cracking finish from the former Wigan striker, and puts Scunthorpe in all sorts of trouble. When the news filters through to the Keepmoat, it might just take a little bit of the pressure off both teams' shoulders!
    • 5' GOOOAL! MARLON KING PUTS COVENTRY AHEAD! David Bell slips the ball through for the striker, who slams the ball confidently into the roof of the net from a tight angle!
    • 1' Marlon King gets Coventry underway!
    • - We're almost ready for kick-off in Coventry too, with the visitors wearing a garish lime-green away shirt! The worry for Coventry fans today is that their team doesn't really have anything left to play for this season. Scunthorpe, by contrast, have everything to play for!
    • - The referee in Coventry is Tony Bates, from Staffordshire
    • - COVENTRY: Westwood, Clarke, Keogh, Cranie, Hussey, Gunnarsson, Clingan, Bell, Baker, King, Jutkiewicz.

    • - Meanwhile, 22nd-place Scunthorpe face a daunting trip to Coventry knowing that an away victory will give them a huge boost in their bid to escape the relegation zone, with their closest rivals doing battle in Yorkshire. This could be a crucial afternoon in this season's relegation battle, and we'll be bringing you all the action right here, LIVE!
