Coventry manager Chris Coleman is refusing to give up on a top-six finish after his side's 1-0 defeat at West Brom - but admits they face an uphill task.
Wednesday night's defeat leaves them eight points behind sixth-placed Cardiff with seven games remaining, but Coleman insists it is imperative his side keep going right until the end regardless of whether the play-off door remains open.
"It's important we finish as high as we can," he said. "While there's even a slim glimmer of hope that we can get into the play-offs, we've got to hang onto that. It would be such a big thing for us.
"Of course, it's a long shot but there's still a lot of points to play for."
