Cup rehearsal sees Preston draw with Coventry

Coventry 1-1 Preston

Ricoh Arena

Preston meet Coventry in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy soon, the league one rehearsal saw the points shared in a draw at The Ricoh on Saturday afternoon.

At the midway point of the first half Coventry, who have been in form recently, took the lead through James Bailey (22). Preston should have levelled before the break but a glorious chance went begging.

Only the crossbar denied The Lilywhites a leveller in the second half, which finally came late on when Lee Holmes (77) secured a point in the 1-1 draw.
