Ipswich Town's progress up the Championship table was checked after a 1-1 draw at Coventry City.

Gavin Williams had given the visitors the lead at The Ricoh Arena, only for Gary McSheffrey to ensure honours finished even.

Coventry started the brighter of the two teams with Dele Adebola's shot deflected off target, while Ipswich keeper Lewis Price then collected a header from the striker.

The woodwork came to Ipswich's rescue as Stephen Hughes' curling free kick whistled past Price and struck the upright.

Ipswich were much livelier after the interval and took the lead on 51 minutes when Williams turned home a cross from Marc Richards.

Within five minutes, The Sky Blues were level when McSheffrey took advantage of Ipswich's hesitancy to lash home.

Adebola then glanced a header fractionally wide before Sam Parkin missed two opportunities as Ipswich scented a winning goal.
