Coventry boss Steven Pressley hailed Franck Moussa's stunning late equaliser which earned his side a 1-1 draw at 10-man Preston.
Kevin Davies opened the scoring for the hosts, but the veteran striker was shown a straight red card shortly before the 90 minutes were up.
The Sky Blues capitalised on their numerical advantage, as Moussa produced a dramatic leveller deep into time added on and Pressley praised the character of his players.
"I didn't think we played well and with five minutes left Preston were fully worth a win," Pressley said.
"But Franck has scored a wonder goal and he'll struggle to score a better goal in his career.
"We didn't pass the ball very well, we kept hooking the ball forward and losing possession - I always encourage the boys to turn on the ball and pass and be brave but we didn't do that.
"We've scored so many late goals this season and it's testament to our character - we always react and keep going.
"Intensity and ethic is a big part of what we do and particularly in the last half-hour that really shone through.
"This was a massive test for us, there's no tougher journey than coming here.
"They're a very aggressive side, they get a lot of balls into the box, but I felt our defenders dealt with it well."
The Lilywhites broke the deadlock after 53 minutes - David Buchanan's left-wing cross found Davies in the six-yard box and he side-footed into the roof of the net.
Davies was sent off two minutes from time for a high tackle on Cyrus Christie and, as the clash headed into the dying seconds, Moussa struck a stunning 35-yard volley into the top corner.
