Coventry City are looking at the possibility of playing their home matches at Northamptonshire stadium Nene Park.

The League 1 club have allegedly inquired about playing their home games at the Irthlingborough ground with owners Sisu trying to find a “more affordable home” after the company running their current stadium, the Ricoh Arena, issued a statutory demand for the £1.1m arrears owed by the club.

The potential new home of the Sky Blues currently lies empty and without electricity after Kettering Town, the most recent tenants, were unable to pay the running costs and forced to move in with Corby Town at Steel Park.

Prior to Kettering's move to the ground at the start of last season, Nene Park was the home of Rushden and Diamonds, who went out of business.
