Steve Carpenter 17th Jun, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE SKY Blues will open their 2015/16 League One campaign with a difficult home fixture against recently relegated Wigan Athletic.

Tony Mowbray’s side host The Lactics on August 8 at the Ricoh Arena before heading to Millwall a week later for their first away game of the season.

The first West Midlands derby of the season falls on August 22 when the Sky Blues make the short trip to Walsall.

The traditional Boxing Day fixture sees Port Vale visit the Ricoh Arena and the first match in 2016 sees Mowbray’s side travel to Crewe on January 2.

The final home match will be played against Sheffield United on Paril 30 and a trip to Oldham Athletic concludes the 2015/16 campaign.
