Tom Pett salvaged a point for Stevenage as they drew 1-1 against a Coventry side that proved a typically tough nut to crack.
It may feel like two points dropped for the Sky Blues, who have the best defence in League Two and led for so long, but they still moved up to sixth in the table.
Coventry broke through with a scrappy goal in the 22nd minute following a Jordan Shipley corner, as Marc McNulty bundled in from close range after his initial shot was blocked.
Dan Newton volleyed over a decent chance for Stevenage in the first minute of the second half after Jonathan Smith had flicked on Joe Martin's free-kick.
Joe Fryer kept the hosts in the contest as he did well to push out Maxime Biamou's low shot across goal and his save proved absolutely vital.
With 15 minutes left, Stevenage equalised as substitute Alex Samuel helped the ball through to Pett, who managed to lift his shot into the net via the underside of the bar.
