Bournemouth’s hopes of automatic promotion as they produced one of the close football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. The home side was expected to pick up the three points after their opponents had lost 16 of their last 18 away trips this season. Jack Mariott opened the scoring in the 30th minute before Ryan Christie equalized in the 52nd minute.

Managers Reaction 

Coventry’s Mark Robins: “I’m saying to the players in the dressing room it’s a difficult one because, on the one hand, the performance is really good, but to lose it is a right kick in the teeth. I think we were really unlucky. They beat us up down there and as poor a performance as it was down there, I think it was a really strong performance tonight. That seems to be something that you say too often, but that is where we’re at. It’s so frustrating. It’s just the reality of our situation, there are some brilliant things, some really good things from our goalkeeper to the opposite end and creating really good opportunities.”

Luton first-team coach Alan Sheehan: “The way the lads defend for each other is so impressive, that togetherness is worth a few points at the end of the season. When we go a goal ahead we rarely get beaten, so to get that goal and grind (the win) out was excellent. We’re in an excellent place, the club is in an excellent place, it’s a wonderful place to work with wonderful players and staff.”
