On this day back in 1987 Coventry City secured a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

In front of 23,407 fans at Highfield Road, the Sky Blues kept up their unbeaten run against the Red Devils that season having beaten them in the FA Cup back in January and secured a draw at Old Trafford.

Norman Whiteside netted the opener for United and they could have further extended their lead after Bryan Robson hit the bar.

But Micky Gynn scored to earn City an impressive point despite United's mid-table position in the league as they kept the momentum going into the Cup final.
