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.
