Home form holds up as City go down

Despite ending their season at the Ricoh Arena with disappointing defeats against Millwall and Doncaster Rovers to confirm relegation to League One, Coventry City ended the 2011/12 campaign with just one point less from their home games than in the previous season.

2010/11 saw the Sky Blues win 9 and draw 5 of their 23 league fixtures in CV6 for a 32-point haul. This time around it was 8 wins and 7 draws for a total of 31.

No supporter will need these stats to have realised long ago that City`s away form would cause them major problems come the end of the season and so it has proved.

Andy Thorn`s stock remains high among many fans and he can point, quite legitimately, to a lack of backing in the transfer market and an inadequate support structure to allow him to do his job properly. The big question about his first full season in management however is why his team have taken only 9 points from 22 away games when they have competed well against every side in the division at home and taken points off 7 of the current top 12.

As the Sky Blues players and supporters wait to get next weekend`s game against Southampton out of the way and get a wretched season over and done with, the Ricoh gears up for the Olympics with Monday night`s play-off between Oman and Senegal at the renamed City of Coventry Stadium.

On-loan midfielder Oliver Norwood meanwhile has been quoted as saying he has been offered a 12-month contract extension at Manchester United after impressing in his time with City.
