They are priced at £5 for everybody and will also be available on the gate on the night of the game.

The club plan to close the North Stand (with the East Stand and Lloydspharmacy Stand open for home fans) and are advising supporters to get to the game as soon as they can.

Ticketing manager Dan Walker said: “We had more than 10,000 fans here for the last round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy against Sheffield United and we are expecting the Sky Blue Army to be out in full force again.

“The football for a fiver offer has worked really well and with all of the Coventry fans together in one stand in the last round, it helped to generate a really good atmosphere.

“It would be great to have the same kind of atmosphere again but I would urge fans to leave plenty of time to arrive and get to their seats because there could be a very strong walk-up on the night.”
