Five years ago this week seen Coventry City return to a packed out Ricoh Arena when they faced tomorrows opponents, Gillingham, after a years exile to Northampton Town’s, Sixfields Stadium.
Now the Sky Blues are playing at Birmingham City’s, St Andrews Trillion Trophy Stadium, against the Gills, with no Ricoh return looking imminent.
However, the Sky Blues have had a lot to cheer about in the opening four games of the season, with Mark Robins’ men unbeaten so far.
It’s been a very hectic week for the club, as they came from 3-1 down and nine men to draw away at promotion favourites, Portsmouth. As well as recruiting exciting prospect, 21-year-old, Callum O’Hare from Aston Villa, on loan till the end of the season.
Tomorrow, Robins will be without suspended Fankaty Dabo and Gervane Kastaneer, who both received second bookable offences at Fratton Park on Tuesday.
New loan signing, O’Hare is likely to feature in the match day squad.
Robins also revealed that winger Jodi Jones isn’t far off a return back from a serious injury, which he picked up at the start of last season.
Coventry’s opponents are yet to get the ground running this year as Steve Evans’ men currently sit 19th with two draws and one defeat.
