1989:

League leaders Arsenal have hit poor form as they aim for their first title in 18 years.

Kevin Kilcline's 82nd minute penalty gives Coventry a 1-0 win at Highfield Road, following on from the Gunners' goalless draw at QPR three days previously.

John Lukic had earlier saved Kilcline's first minute spot-kick but the big defender didn't make the same mistake again, blasting his second effort into the roof of the net.

``Coventry are a very good strong side but they got all the major decisions,'' moaned Graham. ``They are one of the best teams we have played. I would have been happy with a draw and I thought we should have had one ... but I'm not allowed to criticize referees.''

Arsenal end a run of three games in seven days, with a 2-0 home win over Luton, Perry Groves - with a stunning overhead kick - and Alan Smith scoring the goals.
