Andy Rose scores on his return to action as City are held by Walsall...

The Sky Blues had to settle for a point in the Midlands derby after a 1-1 draw against Walsall at the Banks's Stadium.

Andy Rose, in his first start since injuring his knee against Bury in August, put the away side ahead, sweeping home from a Marvin Sordell cross.

City spurned chances to double their advantage in the second-half and were punished 13 minutes from time. The ever-dangerous Erhun Oztumer finishing a well worked team move to level the scores.

Both sides had chances to win the game late on, but were forced to share the spoils.
