Lower gates not just City's problem
Much of the focus on Coventry City's financial situation in recent weeks has been on the crowds for games at the Ricoh Arena this season.
But the Sky Blues are only one of a number of clubs facing a similar problem.
Saturday's opponents Plymouth Argyle for instance have seen average league gates drop for three seasons running and again so far this year despite their continued improvement on the pitch.
Coventry's financial problems make the falling gates much more of an urgent issue than elsewhere of course but, aside from the promoted clubs the trend in the Championship appears to be a downward one.
