Jonson Clarke-Harris strike sees Coventry past basement boys Barnet

Jonson Clarke-Harris scored a late winner as Coventry boosted their League Two play-off hopes with a 1-0 win against Barnet.
It took until the 75th minute for the Sky Blues to break the deadlock against the resolute Bees, with Clarke-Harris popping up with his third goal in four games to secure a vital three points in the race for the top seven.
Barnet threw everything at the hosts but came away with nothing as they remain rooted to the bottom of the table.
Ricardo Santos headed wide early on after Shaquile Coulthirst had already tested Lee Burge in the hosts' goal.
Down the other end, George Legg made a decent save to keep out Sky Blues' top scorer Marc McNulty.
Burge then had to have his wits about him to deny Coulthirst again before keeping John Akinde out just before the break.
Coulthirst continued to threaten but he was denied by Burge again seconds after the restart.
But Coventry earned all three points when McNulty did well to turn inside the box being teeing up Clarke-Harris to score.
