Match Report: Middlesborough 1 Coventry 1

A Lukas Jutkiewicz header 14 minutes from time rescued a 1-1 draw for Coventry against Middlesbrough at the Riverside.The Sky Blues remain winless this season but will be buoyed by the result against early pacesetters Boro.Marvin Emnes' first-half strike looked enough to give the home side all three points and six consecutive victories for the first time since 1995.Coventry defender Chris Hussey tried to clear but could only divert the ball into the path of the Dutchman, who finished clinically for his seventh goal of the season.But Jutkiewicz levelled when Hussey's dangerous cross landed at the feet of Roy O'Donovan. His shot was parried by Carl Ikeme but the ball fell to Jutkiewicz who headed the rebound in off the underside of the crossbar.Boro substitute Faris Haroun missed a golden chance to score the winner in the final seconds. He rose high and cannoned a header against the crossbar.
