Halfway Approaching for Sky Blues

Halfway Approaching for Sky Blues

Coventry City's home game against Wycombe Wanderers on Friday evening marks the halfway point of the 2017/18 season for the Sky Blues.

Mark Robins' side are probably just about where supporters felt they would be at this stage, in the play-off places and showing enough, particularly in their matches against the top teams in the division (having beaten the current top three by a combined score of 8-0) to suggest that they will remain in the shake-up come May.

The manager has had to deal with two injury blows that have severely hampered his attacking options, losing Tony Andreu early on in the campaign and then seeing Jodi Jones ruled out for the season.

Much will depend on how that gap is filled when the January transfer window opens and it is encouraging to hear that Robins is confident of getting new faces into the building as soon as the month begins.

Leaving aside for one moment the huge issues facing the club off the field and the non-existent efforts that have been made to get supporters through the turnstiles for the vast majority of the campaign, Robins has been backed in terms of recruitment and was allowed to get most of his new signings in before pre-season training.

A similar situation in January, albeit with loan deals, will mean a fair crack of the whip in getting City back into League One at the first time of asking.
