  • Sierra Leone’s Amadou Bakayoko scored the opener for Coventry City as Peterborough lost top spot in League One despite salvaging a dramatic draw at home to promotion rivals Coventry.

Max Biamou’s stunning scissor-kick in the 85th minute looked to have given the visitors their first away win of the season, only for Mo Eisa to level five minutes into stoppage time.

The Sky Blues had taken a deserved first-half lead through Amadou Bakayoko before Marcus Maddison equalised from the penalty spot.

Sierra Leone’s native Bakayoko’s opener came in the 12th minute from a Biamou through ball after Peterborough’s Louis Reed had lost the ball. The striker slotted home at the near post on his 50th appearance for the club.

But the dominant visitors were punished for not scoring a second goal seven minutes into the second half when Posh defender Mark Beevers flicked a header on to Ivan Toney who was fouled inside the area by Kyle McFadzean. Maddison sent goalkeeper Marko Marosi the wrong way.

Biamou’s superb effort from 15 yards looked to have won the match before Siriki Dembele found Eisa inside the area and he curled in his 11th league goal of the season.
