Sky Blues versus...Doncaster Rovers
Coventry City enter their 10th successive season at Championship level with another new manager at the helm in the shape of Aidy Boothroyd.
The former Watford and Colchester boss will lead his new team into action against 23 opponents, who Vital Coventry will be looking at over the next few weeks.
Head-to-head: 4 league meetings have taken place between the sides since Doncaster's return to the second tier of English football and they have all been tight affairs.
3 of the games have been settled by a single goal (the highlight for City fans being David Bell's spectacular long-range effort) while the other was a goalless draw.
Transfer dealings: Elliott Ward spent time on loan at the Keepmoat Stadium last season after falling out of favour with Chris Coleman.
Rovers were reportedly keen on a permanent deal this summer but Ward has since joined Norwich City.
The man in charge Sean O'Driscoll has quietly gone about making Rovers an established Championship side with a reputation for playing attractive, passing football despite limited resources and the loss of some big players to other clubs.
He remains firmly in charge in South Yorkshire despite being linked with a number of jobs over the past few months.
