Chris Coleman has backed his side to continue pushing for a play-off place following their 1-1 draw against Plymouth at the Ricoh Arena.

The Sky Blues, who have not lost at home since December, are just two points off sixth-placed Cardiff and host Dave Jones' side on Tuesday night. Kari Arnason headed the visitors into the lead in first-half injury time but Michael McIndoe's first goal for Coventry ensured a point for Coleman's men.

Coleman said: "Why not mention the play-offs? Let's go for it and if we get there by winning all our games 1-0 I won't care at all."

He added: "If you look at the table then this is a point gained because we are closer to Cardiff. We are on a good run at the moment but that is always in the past, it is all about the next game for us.

"With the squad of players we have got, if they stay fit and they stay focused then we stand a good chance. We are under the radar, no-one fancies us and that is fine by me."
