Jordy Hiwula struck in the ninth minute before Bradford were reduced to 10 men on the stroke of half-time as Nathaniel Knight-Percival was shown a second yellow card. Bradford stayed in the game until Bright Enobakhare doubled the lead two minutes from time to keep Coventry's slim play-off hopes alive.
Alex Mowatt's superb curling strike from distance put the Tykes into the lead after 23 minutes but Shrewsbury fired back after 38 minutes as Tyrese Campbell found the target from the edge of the area. Jacob Brown struck after the break to secure the three points for Daniel Stendel's side.
Portsmouth kept up their pursuit of the automatic promotion places as Matt Clarke's added-time strike snatched a sixth straight win with a 2-1 victory at Burton.
Ben Close, who signed a new contract this week, gave Portsmouth the lead at the break, but Burton hit back straight after half-time as Liam Boyce levelled the scores. But Clarke found the bottom corner from the centre of the area to keep Portsmouth within two points of Barnsley.
Sunderland, meanwhile, also moved to within two points of the Tykes after a 2-0 win over Doncaster at the Stadium of Light.
Celtic loanee Lewis Morgan set the wheels in motion as he swept home his maiden league goal to give the Black Cats the lead and Charlie Wyke added a second when he took advantage of Rovers goalkeeper Marko Marosi's error to tap home at the far post. In addition to the victory, Jack Ross' men still boast a game in hand over Barnsley.
Oxford United ended Charlton's 11-game unbeaten run to deal Lee Bowyer's side's automatic promotion hopes a major blow with a 2-1 win at the Kassam Stadium.
Charlton started brilliantly in pursuit of a fifth straight win as Lyle Taylor scored from the penalty spot after five minutes, before Curtis Nelson and Luke Garbutt struck in the 18th and 23rd minutes to turn the game around. Both sides finished with 10 men as Oxford goalkeeper Simon Eastwood and Charlton defender Chris Solly were sent off in the second half.
Walsall snatched an added-time 1-1 draw against relegation rivals Southend. Aramide Oteh's penalty in the fourth minute of added time means both sides remain in the relegation zone, as John White was also sent off for Southend. Simon Cox's 43rd-minute effort had given the visitors the lead.
Bristol Rovers came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon. Joe Pigott opened the scoring for the hosts, who remain in the drop zone, picking out the top corner from the edge of the area.
