Coventry City play their final home game of the 2011/12 season at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday knowing they have to beat already relegated Doncaster Rovers to have any chance of joining the South Yorkshire club in League One next season.
Despite the mathematical chance of staying up should the Sky Blues take six points from their last two fixtures, talk has already turned to the summer and whether there will be any change in the ownership of the club.
After venting his spleen against the City hierarchy on Tuesday night, Andy Thorn has said he would like the chance to continue the work he has done this year.
He told the official website: 'The club needs stability and a few other things, and then we can be really successful. No doubt about it. We need to address the football side of things and that can only benefit all of us.
'We will be stronger from this season but we need to be pro-active as well going forward. I would like to be the person to bring the club forward of course.
'We are very close to doing that even with all the restrictions we have been working under, so I think with a bit of extra work here and there this club can have a bright future.'
Rovers are likely to field a number of young players as manager Dean Saunders faces up to the prospect of a slashed budget for next season.
The experiment of employing an agent to oversee transfer policy at the Keepmoat Stadium, which saw the likes of El Hadji Diouf come to the club, has ended in failure and will not be continued.
Quoted in the Doncaster Free Press, Saunders said: 'We've got 12 players in contract for next season and if you add up all the money we`re committed to, it's miles over the playing budget I have available.
'We`re not shopping in Marks & Spencer anymore - we`re shopping in Lidl.'
