Watford 0-0 Coventry: Daily Mirror match report

Cody McDonald reckons Coventry are set to drag their rivals into a relegation scrap after claiming a point at Watford.
The 25-year-old came off the bench at Vicarage Road but wasted two gilt-edged chances to give City a first away win in the league this season.
Andy Thorn’s men are four points adrift of safety with nine games to go but McDonald is adamant they will survive after a third consecutive draw.
“We have to keep that momentum,” he said. “The longer the season goes on, the more teams seem to be getting dragged into it.
“The pressure can start getting to some teams and hopefully that will start happening to the others.
“We’ve been down there all season so we know what we’re up against.
“We’ve four home games left and if we can win those we’ve got a great chance of staying up. The lads won’t give up and we’ll go to the last game. We’re confident we can do it.”
City had lost their past 10 away games on the spin and only an inspired display by keeper Joe Murphy ensured they left Watford with a point.
Murphy pulled off two stunning saves from Troy Deeney, while John Eustace also had his fierce effort palmed away.
But it was the visitors who should have nicked a win. Nathan Cameron’s 25th minute effort was harshly ruled out before McDonald missed two great chances late on.
Watford boss Sean Dyche said: “We had plenty of chances to win it but they had a lot on the break and on another day they could have gone in.”
