Coventry City play Peterborough United in the Sky Bet League One fixture on Friday, at the ABAX Stadium. The team will be looking to get a vital three points in their push for promotion, as we look at three players who have played for both clubs.

Luke Steele



Coventry City 

Appearances: 32 over the two spells

The goalkeeper was born in Peterborough and started his career with the Posh. He made his professional debut in April 2002, in a 2-2 draw away to Reading. After a further appearance, Steele made a move to one of the giants in the English game, Manchester United, in May of that year for £500,000.

During his time with the Red Devils, he would join the Sky Blues on a three-month loan in September 2004. His loan was then extended until the end of the season. Steele returned to City again in December 2006, joining on an initial seven-day emergency loan, which was extended to the end of the season again.

Clive Platt

Peterborough United

Appearances: 37


Coventry City

Appearances: 67


Platt moved to the ABAX Stadium before the start of the 2004/05 season. He had an indifferent season with the Posh, which saw him join MK Dons in January 2005. 

After stints at MK Dons and Colchester United, the striker joined City in July 2010. He scored his 100th professional league goal during his time with City, aged 34, against Southampton in a 4-2 win.

Danny Swanson

Peterborough United

Appearances: 62


Coventry City

Appearances: 15


Swanson joined the Posh on a two-year contract in June 2012 before making the move to City, after rejecting a new contract with the club.

Swanson joined the Sky Blues in July 2014, signing a two-year contract. He would join St Johnstone for the latter part of the 2014/15 campaign before  returning to City for the close season. However, his contract was then terminated by mutual consent in September 2015.
