MISSING MEN: Sky Blues 3-1 Northampton Town - 2016

Can you remember the missing men from our last victory over the Cobblers...

11 August 2021

Ahead of City’s Carabao Cup First Round tie against Northampton Town, we take a trip down memory lane and remember our last victory against our opponents…

It was during the 2016/17 season when the two sides met at the Coventry Building Society Arena in our second group stage match of the EFL Trophy.

City opened the scoring after 24 seconds only. for Marc Richards to equalise for the Cobblers a minute later!

Jodi Jones was on target to put the Sky Blues 2-1 up in what was only the 8th minute in a frantic start to the match.

City would take control second half to win the game 3-1, with a win at Wycombe in the final group ensuring top spot in Group D.

The Sky Blues would go all the way in the competition sealing victory under the famous Arch with a 2-1 win over Oxford United at Wembley in front of over 74,000 supporters.

However, what we want to know is how well do you remember the Sky Blues side from that day? Can you name the starting eleven and the substitutes?

You have 10 minutes to name the full matchday squad, good luck!
