    Missed chance to keep the pressure on the top spots there. These sort of games are the difference between autos and playoffs.

    Really poor game and key players didn’t show up. Didn’t get the drop of the ball either. Terrible officiating.

    Frustrating. Always a risk when you score so early. playing the same side again shows we have to be brave enough to change it a bit. Sooner or later a player or two will have a poor day. That was today. But long way to go, we can say MK have improved a lot lately as our excuse. need to freshen it up a bit next game.

    That's a shite result. Our lack of goals again to kill the game off. The two 4-1 games are looking like the exception to the rule.

    Classic Coventry City really isn't it. Get ourselves in a decent position then do everything we can to make it harder for ourselves.

    Teams that get promoted automatically don't lose these games.

    Frustrating result but taking a point away from home isn't the end of the world. When have Coventry ever gone by the script....

    Bloody hell that's disappointing. I know they're in decent form but id really hoped for another 3 points today. Sounds like we had a few chances to go 2-0 up with Godden and Biamou , were they bad misses or great keeping?

    Agree with above. If we're serious about Top 2 we should've won this.

    Why? Haven't won more than three in a row all season and take away the last two games and we'd be on 27 goals in 22 games. Hardly the making of a side looking at automatics if you ask me. Teams that get automatics win games like this one.

    Sounds like we weren't great today, but hoping we can avoid the doom and gloom 'that was a must win' merchants. We're 4th, 3 points off top with a game in hand. A win would have been great but there's a long way to go. None of the teams in the top half (Us included) are head and shoulders above everyone else, should be an interesting second half of the season.

    They've not been in bad form recently but these draws are killing us.

    Still, table looks alright still.

    Disappointed yeah ‘but you can’t storm every game, sounds as though we were lacking
    In many areas today and this is definitely a game we would have lost not so long ago.
    So on that basis I’m going to be happy with the point, we haven’t lost and I’m sure MR
    Will have us chomping at the bit for the next game, bring on The Gas.

    Going to get ugly games like this, we ain’t going to win them all. I hope Godden going off was tactical and not an injury.

    Very poor today. As soon as we missed those two chances in the 2nd half the writing was on the wall. Most disappointing was the fact that they scored with 15 minutes to go but we didn't trouble them once after that. Can't argue with the result today. 3 games against MK this season, two draws and a defeat, surprised they've struggled so much.

    Technically we are but yes I stand corrected, still plenty of times we've lost those type of games.

    Bringing Biamou on was just bizarre. It changed the game in their favour

    All of those draws away from home. They only dropped 4 points at home to teams who finished outside of the top 10. 6 to teams outside the top 8.

    Always want to win, we didn't but not disheartened. 3 points off the top 2 with a game in hand.
    There are 6 or 7 teams all doing the same thing, winning a couple then losing, we have drawn too many this year, but only lost 3. We are in with a great shot of top 2.
