7- Tivi have started better but haven't been able to find an opening so far.
Coventry get the second period underway. Tivi will be hoping to build on that late first half goal.
That's the end of the first period.
A scrappy affair as both sides failed to dominate possession. Tivi failed to build on some good work mid-way through the half and were punished by Coventry's first real effort. They struggled afterwards but found just enought to deserve to be level going into the second half.
A cross by Michael Wardle finds it way into the top corner. Fortunate but a draw is probably a fair score at the break.
45- Goal Tivi
43- Chilton works the keeper well. His effort is tipped wide.
40- a little more joy for the hosts, again with Parsons getting forward well. However, his cross is easily collected by the keeper. Chilton then tries a long range effort that sails over.

36- Coventry work another chance that is tipped wide by Beech.
33- Tivi have struggled to get hold of the ball and string a few passes together.

20- Good signs for the home side here. Good link up between Downing and forward partner Edwards leads to the latter getting a shot away that is gathered by keeper Farthing.
18- Saved! Sam Williams hits a fierce shot that is palmed away by the Coventry keeper. That looked destined for the top corner.
15- Coventry come forward and earn a free kick that they will launch into the Tivi box from deep. Keeper Beech comes and collects and the danger is cleared.
11- first effort from Tivi. Right back Parsons gets forward and latches onto a loose ball. His effort is over the bar.
