Barnet and Coventry played out a goalless draw in the first-ever competitive meeting between the two sides.The Bees, who were missing strikers John Akinde and Shaq Coulthirst, could not create any chances against a Sky Blues defence with the best record in League Two.The first half was an even affair, with neither side able to test the goalkeepers.

Coventry started the second half strongly and had a flurry of opportunities in the first 10 minutes after the interval but they could not find a way past Craig Ross.Jodi Jones fired wide and Max Biamou sent a header on target but it was easily caught by the Barnet keeper.Marc McNulty found himself in a good shooting position but his strike was smothered by an acrobatic block from Charlie Clough.Jack Grimmer created space to shoot from the edge of the area but scuffed his shot with 15 minutes remaining.Despite an improved performance in the second half and a late push, Coventry could not find a goal.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsBarnet21Ross16Taylor4Clough5Almeida Santos13Tutonda12Taylor18FonguckSubstituted forMason-Clarkat 68’minutes20Vilhete15BoverSubstituted forAkinolaat 69’minutes24BlackmanSubstituted forShomotunat 79’minutes25Akpa AkproSubstitutes6Nelson14Akinola17Kyei19Shomotun27Mason-Clark34McKenzie-Lyle35Hinckson-MarsCoventry1Burge2Grimmer4Willis5McDonaldBooked at 90mins3Stokes6Kelly8Doyle22Kelly-EvansSubstituted forShipleyat 77’minutes10McNultySubstituted forPonticelliat 85’minutes11Jones9BiamouSubstitutes7Vincenti12Davies13O’Brien16Beavon26Shipley31Stevenson38PonticelliReferee:Ben TonerAttendance:4,041Match StatsHome TeamBarnetAway TeamCoventryPossessionHome51%Away49%ShotsHome3Away16Shots on TargetHome1Away6CornersHome4Away5FoulsHome15Away13Live TextPosted at Match ends, Barnet 0, Coventry City 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+4′ Second Half ends, Barnet 0, Coventry City 0.Posted at 90’+2′ Ricardo Santos (Barnet) wins a free kick in the attacking half.Posted at 90’+2′ Foul by Jordan Ponticelli (Coventry City).Posted at 90′ Mauro Vilhete (Barnet) wins a free kick in the defensive half.BookingPosted at 90′ Rod McDonald (Coventry City) is shown the yellow card for a bad foul.Posted at 90′ Foul by Rod McDonald (Coventry City).Posted at 89′ Attempt saved.
