LOOK: Five reasons to come to Coventry City and support the Sky Blues against Blackpool!

13 October 2015

We've listed five reasons (like you need one) to get yourself down to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, October 17th...

Tickets are now on sale for the Sky Blues’ second home league game of October against Blackpool on Saturday, 17th October at the Ricoh Arena.

The Sky Blues face the Seasiders as they look to continue their impressive start to the season against the former Premier League side and here are five reasons you should get down to the Ricoh Arena.

1. Unbeaten home form!

In the first five home games of the season, the Sky Blues have won four games and drawn one. Not only are Tony Mowbray's side winning games but they have also scored 11 goals in the process, conceding just four. 



2. Adam Armstrong and Ryan Kent return!

The Newcastle and Liverpool loanees return to Sky Blue action this Saturday having missed the 1-0 win over Fleetwood Town due to international duty.

Adam Armstrong is currently City's top-scorer with eight goals in nine appearances, already overtaking last season's top-scorer Frank Nouble.


Ryan Kent may not have scored yet but his performances have shown plenty of promise and Kent scored the winning goal in the 2-1 win for England U20s against Turkey.

3. City demonstrate the art of defending!

The Sky Blues have kept three consecutive clean sheets in their last three games and have only conceded 10 goals in League One this season.

Captain Sam Ricketts has been the architect with Reda Johnson and Aaron Martin providing a solid basis for Tony Mowbray's side this season.



Also, since making his league debut against Shrewsbury Town, Reice Charles-Cook hasn't conceded a goal yet in some eye-catching displays. 

4. Best start to a season since....

The Sky Blues haven't made such a good start to the season since the 1981/82 season, according to historian Jim Brown. 

Tony Mowbray's side are now on 22 points from 11 games and just three points off the top of the table with a game in hand on the rest of the top-half.



Dare we say it, but it's looking promising and you've got to be there to witness it!
 
5. The Prices!  

As well as being the only club in the country to fully recognise the Football Supporters' Federation Twenty's Plenty campaign, the Sky Blues boast some of the cheapest matchday tickets in the league.

Not only that, if you buy online before the game, you can get an adult ticket for just £18!
