COMPETITION: Win tickets to see Coventry City fight for a place in the final of the Checkatrade Trophy

THE SKY Blues are just one game away from a trip to Wembley for the Checkatrade Trophy final and the Observer has teamed up with the competition’s’ sponsors to offer ten luck readers the chance to win four tickets to the semi-final clash against Wycombe Wanderers.

Russell Slade’s Sky Blues will be looking to book their first visit to Wembley since 1987 when they come face-to-face with a Wycombe Wanderers side who suffered their only loss of their Checkatrade campaign to Coventry back in November at Adams Park.

City booked their place in the final four thanks to a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Swansea City Under-21s.

Now they face Wycombe at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday February 7 (7.30pm kick off) in a match that will be shown live on Sky Sports.

But you could be at the Ricoh to cheer on Slade’s side by simply answering the following question.

Who did Coventry City beat on penalties in this year’s quarter-final of the Checkatrade Trophy?

a) Swansea City

b) Northampton Town

c) Wycombe Wanderers
