COMPETITION: Your chance to win four Coventry City Checkatrade Trophy tickets v Forest Green Rovers

THE OBSERVER is offering readers the chance to win bundles of free tickets to see Coventry City play Forest Green Rovers.

The Checkatrade Trophy clash at the Ricoh Arena is on October 9 (7.45pm kick off) and we have 20 tickets available to be divided between five winning fans.

So if you fancy winning four tickets for your family or friends for an evening out on us and organisers the EFL, which is providing the tickets, please answer the question below.

A CheckaTrade Trophy spokesperson said: “Following a very tough night against Arsenal’s scintillating youngsters, the Sky Blues will be looking for a response when they welcome Forest Green Rovers to the Ricoh Arena in their next Checkatrade fixture.

“Forest Green will be looking to take the momentum gained from the 4-0 thumping of their local rivals, Cheltenham, in the first group game as they challenge themselves against League One opposition.”

The Sky Blues, memorable winners of the 2016/7 competition last year at Wembley, lost 3-0 to the Gunners’ youngsters and still have to play Cheltenham Town and Forest Green Rovers in the Group Stage of the Southern Section of the trophy.

Coventry crashed out of last season’s group stage during their cup defence, after their 2-1 Wembley win over Oxford United.

They returned to Wembley in May this year when their League Two Play-Off Final victory secured promotion, after a League season when they lost twice to Forest Green Rovers.

The Sky Blues have it all to do if they are to secure a return to the home of English football in this year’s Checkatrade competition.

For your chance to win, simply tell us which team did Coventry City beat in the 2016/7 Checkatrade Trophy semi-final to return to Wembley for the first time since 1987?
