Goodbye Sixfields (For Now) As Wolves Arrive

Goodbye Sixfields (For Now) As Wolves Arrive

A season that will go down in the history books for many of the wrong reasons ends in two games time for Coventry City with a final visit to Sixfields on Saturday when the Sky Blues host League One champions Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Ironically this last 'home' game may attract the biggest crowd of the campaign to City's temporary 'home' as Wolves are likely to bring a large away following with them for a match that looked a few weeks ago as though it would be crucial to their promotion hopes.

Plenty of scouts have been in attendance at Sixfields throughout the season and more are likely to be there this weekend to run the rule over Callum Wilson. One manager linked with City's 20-goal striker will be in the opposition dug-out although Kenny Jackett has denied any interest from Wolves at this stage.

Jackett's side have already managed to score 85 goals in 2013/14 and concede only 30 and City will need more of the defensive resilience praised by Steven Pressley in the draw at Oldham Athletic on Monday to hold Wolves at bay.

Pressley's side still need points to be mathematically sure of avoiding relegation although it will take a lot of results to go against them for CIty to fall four further places in the League One table.
