Coventry manager Chris Coleman was disappointed to see his side squander a 1-0 lead and settle for a draw at Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Kieron Cadogan capitalised on a mistake from Sky Blues defender Jordan Turner to earn Palace a point, leaving Coleman to ponder what might have been.

"If we had got the second goal then we could have gone on to get the third and the fourth," he said. "We were the team pushing to win the game, but they didn't have to work hard for their goal."

He added: "Ben Turner isn't that type of player, usually the ball is in the stand or 60 yards up the pitch, so I don't know why he did it.

"He made a mistake and it cost us two points, but his performance did not deserve that."
