Coventry City Football Club can confirm it will be taking up the invitation from the Football League to discuss its decision to deduct ten points from the Club.

The Club is disappointed by the decision but also understands the Football League’s course of action in accordance with its rules and regulations.

We welcome the offer for further dialogue which we hope to commence at the earliest available opportunity.

The Football League board will further consider their position regarding the Club at their next meeting on April 11th, 2013.
