Adams angered by tackle

Adams angered by tackle

A competitive local derby saw both sides claim a point after two goals in the space of three first-half minutes.

Richard Stearman opened the scoring for Leicester before Stern John's equaliser.

The visitors were reduced to ten men in the second-half when Patrick Kisnorbo was sent off for a foul on Andy Whing, one that angered Coventry boss Micky Adams.

He said: 'It was disgraceful. He deserved a straight red and anyone who tries to defend it has got it wrong.

'It was two-footed over the top of the ball. There was no attempt to play the ball at all and I was disappointed.

'It was a local derby and it was competitive and he was playing a blinder but he spoiled his afternoon.'

Leicester manager Rob Kelly did not disagree with the red card, but said: 'It was a bad tackle but mis-timed rather than malicious.

'I know Patrick Kisnorbo and he would never seek to deliberately hurt anyone - you could see that by his immediate reaction because he tried to help.

'But he's a good player and a good person who's already held his hands up and admitted he got it wrong.'

Good game apart from the tackle. Both sides look to be going the right way for next season.
