Coventry City skipper Carl Baker's wonderful overhead kick earned his side a point against Oldham Athletic.

Former Sky Blues forward Jonson Clarke-Harris gave the Latics the lead when he headed home Jonathan Grounds' cross.

Baker levelled for the hosts with his spectacular 73rd-minute effort from Cyrus Christie's centre.

Lee Johnson's side came closest to a winner when home goalkeeper Joe Murphy was forced into a fine late save from striker Michael Petrasso.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Sky Blues manager Steven Pressley told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire:

"When you perform like we did you need to score more than one goal.

"I'm disappointed we didn't get all the three points because our performance merited that.

"We can't concede goals like we did just before half time. Like against Peterborough it was from a set play.

"But we kept pressing and passing with speed and it resulted in us getting the goal we deserved."

Oldham manager Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Manchester:

"It was a similar story to the Sheffield United game on Boxing Day.

We've had a right go at the end, a run of attacks, and it was a good performance all round.

"It's disappointing not to come away with three points, but they are a good side.

"I was pleased with the performance because I thought that was superb."
