Coventry City 1-1 Doncaster Rovers

Coventry substitute Amadou Bakayoko scored a last-gasp equaliser to salvage a draw at home to Doncaster and maintain his side's unbeaten start to the season.

Doncaster captain Ben Whiteman's goal just before half-time had looked set to earn Rovers all three points from their trip to St Andrew's.

However, Coventry refused to give up and, with 89 minutes on the clock, Bakayoko slotted home to level things up.

Bakayoko had only been on the pitch six minutes but his crucial contribution ensured Coventry extended their unbeaten League One run to 10 games this season.

Only City and leaders Ipswich have yet to taste defeat in the division.
