Sky Bet League 1 | Coventry City Remain 12 Points Behind Walsall

10:00 pm Tuesday, 29 March 2016  
As the majority of Jon Whitney's Walsall squad continue to prepare for next weekend's Sky Bet League 1 visit to Sheffield United, several other sides have been in action as many fixtures were not affected by the international break.
As the majority of Jon Whitney's Walsall squad continue to prepare for next weekend's Sky Bet League 1 visit to Sheffield United, several other sides have been in action as many fixtures were not affected by the international break.

Tuesday evening's fixture saw Coventry City (9th) play host to Colchester United (23rd), with the Sky Blues looking to bridge the gap to the Play-Off places while the U's were hoping to move four points clear of bottom placed Crewe Alexandra, and keep their slim hopes of survival alive.

Colchester looked to be carrying a good amount of confidence following their Good Friday victory over fellow relegation threatened side Doncaster Rovers and went on to open the scoring after eighteen minutes of play, Gavin Massey with the goal.

Coventry had an opportunity to level the scores just before the break as Romain Vincelot was tripped inside the area and a penalty was awarded, but United 'keeper Elliot Parish was up for the task as he dived to save Jacob Murphy's spot kick, the visitors leading at half-time.

There were no more goals in the game as City remain eight points off the Play-Off places, and eighteen points behind the second placed Wigan Athletic.

Colchester stay in 23rd but are now four points above Colchester United and seven points behind 20th placed Fleetwood Town with seven league games remaining.
