Coventry Editorial 23rd Sep, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE SKY Blues take on Northampton Town in the Checkatrade Trophy at the Ricoh Arena on October 4 in what is their second match in the revamped competition.

Tony Mowbray’s side made a winning start in the competition last month after defeat West Ham Under-23s in the Southern Group D.

It looks set to be an exciting match up between the Sky Blues and the Cobblers, with the two sides having already met at the Ricoh earlier this season in a match that ended 1-1.

Harry Beautyman gave Northampton a half-time lead that day before Marcus Tudgay earned the Sky Blues a point.
