pleased we again came back from a goal down.

“We’re tired but in some ways I wish there were five or six games to go.

“I’ve told the lads we haven’t won any­thing yet – but this sea­son has given us a taste of what it would be like.”

While strike part­ner Cal­lum Wil­son showed flashes of the sharp­ness ru­moured to make him a £3m tar­get for Stu­art Pearce’s Not­ting­ham For­est, it was Nathan Delfouneso who struck first in the 38th minute for Coven­try with a com­posed right foot fin­ish af­ter mid­fielder John Fleck threaded the ball into his path.

Flynn be­gan the surge for the lev­eller be­fore thrillingly swap­ping passes with Conor Coady and sweep­ing his shot past Joe Mur­phy.

That was al­most bet­tered by his com­po­sure 11 min­utes later in choos­ing just the mo­ment to re­lease Davies in­side the box to drive across the Coven­try goal­keeper.

While Clough has an iron grip on Flynn, his main miss could be man-of-the-match John Bray­ford, who pro­duced an­other breath­tak­ing dis­play on the right flank in his last game on loan from Cardiff.

Mean­while, Sky Blues boss Steven Press­ley ad­mit­ted his re­lief that a dif­fi­cult sea­son was fi­nally over.

He said: “Both man­agers should be pleased.

“Matches like this where only pride is at stake on the last day of the sea­son can be like a tes­ti­mo­nial – but it was never that.

“I’m dis­ap­pointed we lost and I didn’t think we de­served to.

“It has been a de­mand­ing and very dif­fi­cult time for ev­ery­one at Coven­try City in­clud­ing play­ers, of­fi­cials and fans alike.”
