Missed penalty ruins Coventry chance of three points

Coventry boss Andy Thorn refused to blame top scorer Lukas Jutkiewicz after missing an injury-time penalty in the 1-1 draw with Reading in the Championship. Thorn said: "I don't want to dwell on the penalty because I thought we played really well today.

"I thought we moved the ball well and we had a terrific start, which we had spoken about.

"They had a penalty in the first half and it might have been a different game had that gone in but the match had everything for the fans.

"Our supporters really got behind the team today and drove us on. I was proud of the boys today. On another day, we might win it but we don't point fingers in our dressing room.

"The kid has missed a pen - but how well did he do to win it?"

Reading boss Brian McDermott was happy with a point.

He said: "I think if we had made it 2-1, we might have gone on to win the game. "I would have been very pleased if Noel Hunt's penalty had gone in but it was a bit edgy at times. It is probably a better result for us in the end than it was for them.

"Our keeper made some good saves but he is a top-class keeper."
