Coventry boss Chris Coleman was disappointed his side failed to maintain their impressive first-half showing after the break in the 1-1 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Leon Best, wearing a protective mask to cover his face as he recovers from a fractured cheekbone, headed the Sky Blues in front a minute before half-time but Chris Eagles equalised for the hosts in the final minute with a deft chip.

"In the first half we were not in any danger but we sat back for the second 45 minutes and I'm disappointed with that approach," said Coleman.

"Sooner or later you are going to concede and in the end we buckled.

"But I think before the game we would have been happy with a point at Burnley. They are going for the play-offs and had just beaten Wolves."
