'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Burnley 1 Coventry City 1

Coventry City travelled to Turf Moor on Saturday, for their penultimate away game of the season, knowing that they needed to better the result of Bristol City at Birmingham to remain in with a chance of avoiding relegation to League One.

Easter Monday's defeat at Bristol City had signalled a week of doom and gloom around the club which boss Andy Thorn would have to dispel if his side were to take anything from their trip to Lancashire.

Home side Burnley went into the game with an outside chance of making the play-offs and, keen to give themselves some momentum ahead of next season took a first-half lead through Austin.

With Bristol leading Birmingham 2-1 at the break City's situation looked ever more precarious.

Two equalisers, one from Clive Platt at Turf Moor and the other from Nikola Zigic at St Andrews provided welcome news but which leave Thorn's side still four points adrift with only three games to play.
