"On the … green
Of Shakespeare’s county shine!"
Time for the tin-pot trophy again, where nobody really cares about the outcome - but it’s a chance to experiment with team formation and tactics in the interest of “gelling”. No doubt the Sky Blues will have a similar approach so League form goes out of the window, making the inclusion of League results superfluous.
No prediction either, for the same reasons.
Just a word for those hardy souls planning to travel to the game though … don’t go to Highfield Road, don’t go to Sixfields Northampton, and above all don’t go to The Ricoh. This game will be played at the well-known home of Coventry City … that’s right, St. Andrews ground in Birmingham’s salubrious Bordesley district.
It might give Rory Gaffney a chance to start gelling, if nothing else.
(The other two teams in our Southern Region Group D are Forest Green Rovers and Southampton’s kindergarten side, for information…)
