Southampton 1 Coventry City 1
They used to call Micky Adams The Fuse when he was strutting his stuff at the Dell.
Age has not dimmed that sparky side but his ire was soothed in the nick of time as Coventry ensured justice was done on the club's first visit to St Mary's.
Had Don Hutchison not bagged a late equaliser, the Adams blood-pressure would have risen sharply up the scale and with some justification but in the end he left his former club partly satisfied.
Any concerted excitement was limited to the final ten minutes when, after 80 minutes of very ordinary football, the game sprang into life, Grzegorz Rasiak headeding in a Dexter Blackstock cross.
It looked at that stage as if Coventry would pay the price for too many missed opportunities, but Adams had already introduced Don Hutchison in a bid to bring some variety to a fairly one-dimensional strike force and the Scot did make a difference.
With two minutes to go, Hutchison was bundled over by Nathan Dyer. It was clearly a foul, but the remarkable thing was the fact that tiny Dyer, who must get sand kicked in his face on holiday, was able to bring Hutchison to the floor at all.
