Russell Slade denied first Coventry win by late Michael Bostwick goal for Posh

New boss Russell Slade was denied his first win as Coventry boss by a last-gasp leveller in a 1-1 draw at Peterborough.

The struggling Sky Blues were on course for victory as skipper Jordan Willis converted a Chris McCann cross in the 19th minute.

While that effort did prove enough to snap a run of seven successive Sky Bet League One defeats, Michael Bostwick's dramatic equaliser denied Slade's side victory.

The hosts had been way below par in a game of very few chances. It took until the second minute of the second half for them to test Coventry keeper Lee Burge, who kept out a Lee Angol header.

Burge then saved a 25-yard rocket from Marcus Maddison before a brilliant block prevented Bostwick from slamming in the rebound.

Burge also held a late Ryan Tafazolli effort in a scramble before Bostwick headed in Maddison's cross to rescue Posh a point in the third minute of added time.
