Coventry striker Max Biamou rescues a point against Newport

Coventry striker Max Biamou came off the bench to rescue a 1-1 draw against Newport at Rodney Parade.
The French forward volleyed home a cross from the left by another second-half substitute Kyel Reid in the 79th minute to earn a share of the spoils.
Mickey Demetriou's fifth goal of the season gave County the lead just before the break after fine work from Paul Hayes and Robbie Willmott.
The central defender popped up in the Coventry six-yard box in the 40th minute to round off an impressive move, and the Exiles were very much the dominant force in the second half.
Padraig Amond saw an effort cleared off the line and the Newport forward then headed against the woodwork.
However Coventry extended their unbeaten run to seven games and strengthened their grip on a play-off place courtesy of Biamou's second league goal of the season.
