COVENTRY AGREE RICOH DEAL

Coventry City will play their remaining npower League 1 matches at the Ricoh Arena after coming to a short-term agreement.

The Sky Blues have been embroiled in a year-long row with Arena Coventry Ltd, their landlords, regarding rent on the ground, which has been their home since 2005.

Reports have suggested, however, that the League 1 team, who currently sit five points adrift of the Play-Offs, may still look to play their remaining three league matches away from the Ricoh.

Earlier in the season they were rumoured to be in discussions with the landlords of Northamptonshire stadium Nene Park, which currently stands empty following the exit of previous tenants Kettering Town.

Hinckley United's Greene King Stadium has also reportedly been considered as a venue to hold future Sky Blues' matches.
