Sky Bet League 2
Coventry City 0-0 Morecambe
Coventry City and Morecambe shared the points in a goalless draw on the final day of the season to secure a play-off spot and League 2 survival respectively.
Both sides came into the game knowing that a point would be enough both sides to get the ideal outcome.
The game was tense at times, and Coventry came close six minutes in when Michael Doyle’s effort on the edge of the box was tipped over by the excellent Barry Roche.
Chances were few and far between for most of the game, and Morecambe’s only chance of the first half came in the 32nd minute when Aaron Wildig put in a cracking ball towards Adam McGurk but a defender was first to it only just.
Coventry then came remarkably close seven minutes later when Jonson Clarke-Harris’ effort from around two yards was kept out amazingly by Roche to keep the Shrimps in the game with relegation-rivals Barnet winning 1-0 at the time.
Morecambe started the second half brightly and came close in the 51st minute when Wildig played a great ball through to Kevin Ellison on the left but his shot hit the side-netting.
The only other real chance of the game came in the 74th minute when Tom Bayliss made it through on goal but his effort was brilliantly blocked by Aaron McGowan.
The result means the Shrimps stay in League 2 on goal-difference while Coventry City finish in sixth position and will face Notts County in the play-offs.
