'If It's Football, It's Vital'

PNE downbeat ahead of City clash?

Coventry City travel to Deepdale on Saturday to face a side, like the Sky Blues, facing up to the sale of one of their star players amid the current financial constraints affecting a host of Championship clubs.

Central defender Sean St Ledger has joined Middlesbrough on loan, ahead of a permanent move in January, for a fee which could total 4.5m altogether.

His absence looked to have been keenly felt on Tuesday night as PNE went down to defeat at Scunthorpe.

Chairman Derek Shaw told the Lancashire Evening Post: 'I'm as disappointed as anyone to lose Sean.

'I know the manager is disappointed and I know the player really liked it here.

'The facts are that this club needs to bring in a large amount of money.

Every couple of years we will probably have to sell to balance the books.'
