Notts County v Coventry City preview: League Two play-off semi-final second leg live on Sky Sports
Last Updated: 18/05/18 6:17pm
Notts County host Coventry in the second leg of the League Two play-off semi-final on Friday night, with the tie hanging in the balance.
The two teams fought out a 1-1 draw when they met in the first leg at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday night. Jonathan Forte opened the scoring for the visitors, only for Marc McNulty to level late on after a contentious penalty award. Notts County could be unchanged, with Forte (hamstring) expected to be fit.
However, Coventry's Tom Davies is suspended having been handed a retrospective three-game ban by the FA.

Coventry haven't won any of their last eight away games against Notts County in all competitions (D2 L6), since a 3-0 victory in August 1963.
The Magpies are unbeaten in their last nine home games in all competitions, winning five and drawing four.
The Sky Blues have lost just one of their last seven away games in all competitions (W4 D2), though that defeat did come at Meadow Lane in April (1-2).
Coventry haven't been promoted from any division since winning the second tier in 1966-67.

Well that was a dramatic end to proceedings on Saturday night! What a lifeline that penalty gave Coventry in this tie, and it's wide open now.
Notts County will certainly feel aggrieved but they've got plenty of time to get over it ahead of the second leg. It will be a tight game again at Meadow Lane on Friday night and it could be a similar result that would see it go all the way. I think the Sky Blues could just nick it on penalties.
