Oldham Athletic 0-0 Coventry City

Coventry City and Oldham both need just one more win to ensure their League One survival after a goalless draw.

The stalemate ended a three-game losing streak for the Sky Blues while Oldham are now unbeaten in seven matches.

Jonson Clarke-Harris hit the post with a 25-yard free-kick for the home side while Nathan Eccleston forced a good save from Oldham's Paul Rachubka.

Coventry almost took all three points as Rachubka saved from John Fleck after he shot following a run into the box.

Oldham manager Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I think it was important that we didn't lose the game.

Post-match: Oldham manager Johnson

"I was disappointed that we didn't win it, I thought we had the better chances.

"The game was a bit flat, it was a bit end of season, testimonial type game.

"It's another game unbeaten, another clean sheet and we have three games now to move forward."
