Wood heads Owls~to battling draw

Date published: Tuesday 1st April 2008 10:16

Owls captain Wood stooped to head the ball into the far corner from eight yards out after a long throw-in from Steve Watson in the second minute of time added-on at Hillsborough to earn Wednesday a priceless point in their battle to avoid the drop.

On-loan striker Zavon Hines looked to have taken Coventry a step closer to survival with a sublime left-foot volley seven minutes from time after a mistake from Jermaine Johnson, but Wednesday threw men forward and were rewarded right at the death.

The point was enough for them to leapfrog Barnsley and Southampton on goal difference into 20th place and the South Yorkshire club still have a game in hand. Coventry stay 18th.
