About Coventry City

Manager

Mark Robins

Robins joined Coventry in March 2017 for a second spell in charge of the club, having been in charge between September 2012 and February 2013, before spells at Huddersfield Town and Scunthorpe United followed.

He couldn’t prevent their relegation to League Two at the end of the 2016/17 season, but did lift the Checkatrade Trophy with a 2-1 win over Oxford United.

The former Manchester United striker led the Sky Blues back to League One at the first attempt through the playoffs, after a season in which they didn’t drop out of the top ten at any stage.

2017/18 Season Review

Position | 6th (Sky Bet League Two)

Average Attendance | 9,255

Top Scorer | Marc McNulty – 25

Coventry secured promotion back to Sky Bet League One at the first attempt, after triumphing in the playoffs.

An impressive run saw them climb into the automatic promotion spots on New Year’s Day, before three consecutive defeats in February threatened their playoff chances.

However, a point on the final day was enough to secure a playoff tie against Notts County, who they defeated 5-2 on aggregate, before beating Exeter City 3-1 in the final at Wembley.

 

Previous Meeting

Rochdale 2-0 Coventry City | 17th April 2017

Dale moved to within three points of the League One playoff places with a 2-0 victory over already relegated Coventry.

Ian Henderson scored a brace, either side of the break, in a comfortable victory.
