It has been a mixed start to the campaign for the young Sky Blues, who have stormed to comfortable victories but have also suffered unfortunate defeats. 

Their opening-day win over Reading was followed by defeats against Charlton and Millwall, before John Demspter's side bounced back against Crewe.

City then fell to defeats against Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City, before returning to winning ways with a comfortable 2-0 win over Barnsley.
