Coventry City 2-2 Crewe Alexandra

Goals from on-loan duo Tom Hitchcock and Chuks Aneke earned Crewe Alexandra a point against Coventry.

Crewe took the lead when Hitchcock finished coolly after receiving a through ball from strike partner Aneke.

However, Coventry hit back with a Franck Moussa header and took the lead through Callum Wilson's penalty after he was fouled by keeper Ben Garratt.

Crewe responded well and levelled when Hitchcock squared for Aneke to tap in and earn the draw.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley told BBC Coventry And Warwickshire:

"I'm disappointed with the result but not the performance. We were so much in control of the game when we got our noses in front at 2-1.

"It looked to everyone like there was only going to be one winner but we allowed them back in the game. That's the only disappointing thing for me which is the two goals we lost, because at no time were we ever in danger.

"We look like a team which isn't going to concede goals, but is conceding them purely through errors.

"We're a very good unit, and we just need to cut those mistakes out and we'll be a very good team. All in all a really good performance but a result which didn't reflect that."
