COMPETITION: Win tickets to see the Sky Blues take on Crawley Town in the Checkatrade Trophy

THREE consecutives wins and 11 goals along the way have booked the Sky Blues a deserved place in the knockout stage of the revamped Checkatrade Trophy.

Mark Venus’ side finished top of Southern Group D thanks to comfortable victories over West Ham Under-23s, Northampton and Wycombe.

Their most recent success came down at Adams Park where the Sky Blues came from 2-0 down to win 4-2 thanks to goals from Academy trio Ryan Haynes (2), George Thomas and Gael Bigirimana.

A place in the last 16 is up for grabs when the Sky Blues host Crawley Town on December 7. Crawley are coming into the game off the back of a heavy defeat at the hands of Southampton, and will be aiming to put things right at the Ricoh Arena.

The Observer has teamed up with Checkatrade, official sponsors of the competition, to offer ten lucky fans the chance to win FOUR tickets to the match.
