The two teams showed why they were only one place apart going into the fixture, an end to end game saw chances for the Sky Blues narrowly missed by Conor Chaplin and Jordan Willis and Billy Kee also hitting the bar before the half time interval.
The breakthrough came in the 58th minute though, when Offrande Zanzala found space in the box to fire past Lee Burge and put the visitors into the lead. The Sky Blues responded well when just after the hour mark Luke Thomas forced a good save out of Connor Ripley to keep Accrington in front and was looking to giving them all three points.
However, Coventry would find their equaliser on the 87th minute when a parried shot from Jodi Jones found its way to Michael Doyle who slotted it home, to give a share of the points at the Ricoh and end the game 1-1.
Since the two clubs met on the 3rd November, both teams have dropped in league position. Accrington Stanley sat in 6th on November 3rd, but after a poor start to 2019 with only the one-win vs Oxford United, Accrington now in 15th.
Back on November 3rd Coventry sat in 7th one place behind Accrington, however even though falling a few places due to some up and downs in form for the Sky Blues they now sit above Accrington in 10th with a six-point gap, however Accrington do have two games in hand to most teams in the league.
