Senad Lulic: In hot water

A point was enough for Steve Cotterill’s team to be sure of top spot, while for Coventry it represented another step towards safety.

Home defender Derrick Williams wasted the best first-half chance when heading over from Luke Freeman’s 11th-minute cormer.

But Coventry were lively going forward and home goalkeeper Frank Fielding had to produce a fine diving save to keep out John Fleck’s 36th-minute volley from the edge of the box.

Cotterill’s side felt they should have had a penalty in the closing moments of the first half as Kieran Agard went down under a challenge from Reda Johnson.

A low-key second half saw Freeman fire wide for the home side, while Nick Proschwitz almost grabbed all three points for Coventry in injury time, narrowly missing the target from inside the box.

The point was enough for the Robins to seal their first title success for 60 years and their fans partied in droves after the final whistle.
