Tim Jackson – player-coach struck the post in the dying minutes before the Coventry counter attack

A nip-and-tuck affair – the first clash between these two sides – ended with Coventry United grabbing a late, late winner on the break, just seconds after Khalsa had struck the post through substitute Tim Jackson.

In a game between two of the sides expected to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season, it was the league newcomers who went home with the points.

Marvin Nisbett, Lee Chilton and Simeon Townsend all had decent openings for Khalsa, but the closest they came was in the final moments when Jackson’s free kick bounced back off the post, the home side were unable to turn it home and then United broke away to grab the three points.
