MY CCFC XI: Mark Smith picks his ultimate Sky Blues side!

28 April 2020

Coventry City fan Mark Smith is next up to choose his perfect Sky Blues XI!

Mark lives in Stevenage, Hertforshire. He has supported the Sky Blues for 32 years - and here is his best XI from during that time...

Goalkeeper - Steve Ogrizovic

Mr Coventry City. Reliable keeper who was unlucky not to be called up by England.

Right Back - Roland Nilsson

Dependable right back who rarely put a foot wrong.

Centre Half - Gary Breen

In my opinion, our best centre half in the last 25 years. Good in the air and good tackler.

Centre Half - Trevor Peake

Again very consistent and reliable centre half.

Left Back - Greg Downs

Solid left back and good going forward.

Midfield - Gary McAllister

Great on set plays and also very creative. Chipped in with important goals too.

Midfield - Mustapha Hadji

Creative midfielder who again contributed significantly towards vital wins when playing in the top flight.

Midfield - Youssef Chippo

Ball winning centre midfielder, who was a consistent midfielder.

Striker Dion Dublin

Scored 61 goals in his time with us. Ever reliable, won us so many points, kept us up many times in the top flight and was adept at playing centre half.

Striker - Cyrille Regis

Club legend. Like Dion, was strong as an ox and was pacy too. Scored 56 goals

Striker - Peter Ndlovu

Was quick and caused defences so many problems with his pace. Remembered his debut at Highbury and scored a class goal. Also his hat trick at Anfield in the 94/95 will always be remembered.
