Viktor Gyokeres scored his 14th goal of the season to snatch a 2-2 draw for Coventry City against Blackburn Rovers in the Championship on Saturday.

The late drama was the finishing touch on what had already been an enthralling encounter.

Mark Robins' Sky Blues took the lead through a bizarre Harry Pickering own goal eight minutes into the game.

Callum O'Hare was trying to make inroads towards the Blackburn goal when the ball deflected off the feet of Pickering and past Thomas Kaminski to give City the early lead.

A spirited second-half comeback from Tony Mowbray's men turned the game on its head, though.

Seconds after coming on as a half-time substitute, Bradley Dack stooped low to head in Rovers' equaliser, before Scott Wharton scored a header of his own with 10 minutes on the clock to put Blackburn into a deserved lead.

As has so often been the case this season, though, Coventry had a late reply.

Fankaty Dabo's spotted Gyokeres at the back post, and the Swedish international flung himself at Dabo's cross and nodded in Coventry's latest late goal.

Whilst the a point did nothing to help either side, Sky Blues fans can at least say they have been getting their money's worth this season.

Gyokeres' most recent late goal was Coventry's 16th past the 80 minute mark this season, as per SoccerStats.com.

And the reputation this side are getting for being the masters of the late goal is clearly something they are picking up on.

Coventry's Twitter account dubbed their latest stoppage-time antics as "COVENTRY CITY TIME", whilst Gyokeres himself celebrated his 99th minute leveller by simply tapping his wrist, as though he was checking the time.
