AS Roma B-eaten by Sky Blues
While the Coventry City hierarchy issued a statement on Monday saying they were ready to talk further about a return to the Ricoh Arena, Steven Pressley's side beat AS Roma's B team 2-0 in a friendly match played on their trip to Northern Italy.
New signings Shaun Miller and Danny Pugh got the goals while Pressley will have been pleased to have kickstarted the pre-season matches in earnest after Saturday's game at Nuneaton was washed out just minutes into the second half.
Off the field meanwhile the club state they have a proposal that is 'ready to go' on a Ricoh return but have attempted to pass the ball back to ACL by saying nothing can happen until a Football League meeting in early August makes a ruling on the monies owed by the club to the stadium company.
