The Sky Blues host Gillingham tomorrow

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.

How are the Sky Blues doing in the transfer window

The Sky Blues are still very busy in the transfer window this season, as Mark Robins looks to set his sights on promotion back to the Championship after a seven year absence.

However, they are going to have to do it without centre back and academy graduate Jordan Willis, who has left the club to join Sunderland, following goalkeeper and academy graduate, Lee Burge.

Coventry have also sold striker Conor Chaplin to Championship side, Barnsley for an undisclosed fee, which has gave fans confidence in Bright Enobakhare returning to the club, now that Robins has a bit of money to play with.

The Sky Blues are also linked with Nottingham Forest striker, Tyler Walker, the 22-year-old and formed England under-20s man looks to sign on a season long loan with the club.

If manager, Robins manages to bring Enobakhare and Walker to the club, Coventry City have every chance of challenging for promotion this season.
