Yakubu debuts for Coventry

Former Nigeria international, Yakubu Aiyegbeni was denied what could have been a dream winning debut on Tuesday night as his team were forced to a late away draw by AFC Wimbledon in their League One clash.

Yakubu who just tied a short deal with the Sky Blues till the end of the season was brought in just after the hour-mark when proceedings was still 0-0.

Barely 10 minutes after Yakubu’s entry into the pitch, Coventry City shot in front through Jodi Jones and they held on for a long while.

However, AFC Wimbledon captain Paul Robinson led by example as his injury-timegoal earned his side a 1-1 draw with bottom club Coventry.

After a goalless first half Coventry looked to be heading to a first win in 15 league matches thanks to Jodi Jones' 71st-minute strike.

But in the third minute of injury time, Robinson pounced on a loose ball in the box to dash the visitors' hopes and ensure Wimbledon remain unbeaten at home in seven league games.

Yakubu who admits he is on a rescue mission of some sort will hope things get better when his new club hosts Gillingham in the next round of League fixtures.
