We take a look back at some of those to have represented both the Sky Blues and Rochdale ahead of the weekend's clash.

Peter Vincenti

Vincenti started his professional career in 2007 when joining Millwall after impressing in the Island Games for Jersey. After failing to make it into the Millwall first team, Vincenti left in 2008 to join Stevenage where he would spend his next three years making 64 appearances. After a short loan spell at Macclesfield Town in 2010, Vincenti made the move to Aldershot Town in 2011 in which he would make 102 appearances in two years, before moving to League Two Rochdale in 2013.

Vincenti’s first goal for Rochdale would come in October 2013 with a 25-yard strike in a 3-0 win over Newport. VIncenti would go to make the most appearances he has made for any club in his career so far, making 131 in the four years. Following the 2016-17 season Vincenti made his move to the Two Sky Blues. Vincenti would make 24 appearance in his season at the Ricoh, before being released from his contract at the end of the season, to return to the Silkmen.

Willo Flood

Flood started his career at Manchester City in 2002 and after breaking into the first team Flood was sent out on loan, first to Rochdale in 2004, where he made 6 appearances. After returning to Manchester City Flood was sent straight back on loan, this time to the Sky Blues in which he made 8 appearances scoring a single goal against Watford in a 3-1 at the Ricoh Arena.

A year after returning from Coventry, Flood moved to Cardiff and he would spend a short spell in Scotland on loan, joining Dundee United. Then making a permanent move to Scotland in 2009, Flood joined Celtic. Following spells at Middlesbrough, Dundee and Aberdeen and a final spell with Dundee United, Flood final move came at Dunfermline Athletic in 2018.

 

Clive Platt

The Wolverhampton born striker’s first club was Walsall in 1995. After four years at the Saddlers, a brief loan spell at Rochdale was made permanent in 1999. In the four years with the Division Three side, Platt made 164 appearances whilst scoring 27, leading to a move to Notts County in 2003.

After spells at Peterborough United, MK Dons and Colchester United, Platt moved to the Sky Blues in 2010. Platt would go on to score his 100th career goal for Coventry against Southampton on the 5th November 2011, unfortunately Southampton would go on to win the game 4-2.

After 67 appearances for the Sky Blues Platt would move to Northampton in 2012, then making his final career move to Bury in 2014. Making 618 career appearances and scoring 110 goals, Platt retired in October 2014 due to injury problems.
