Ahead of the meeting between the Sky Blues and Norwich City, we take a look back at a classic match from the past...

On September 9th 2006, City welcomed the Canaries to the then-named Ricoh Arena for a Championship clash at the newly-build stadium.

Darren Huckerby and Youssef Safri were both in action for the visitors but it was the Sky Blues who came out on top.

Coventry started the game at speed, opening the scoring from range through Chris Birchall on the 12th minute.

Kevin Kyle doubled City's lead on the 63rd minute, the first of a quick-fire double that was completed by Stern John just four minutes later.

Coventry would end the season down in 17th place, one place down on Norwich's finishing position with the two sides seperated by only one point.

Sky Blues XI: Andy Marshall; Andy Whing, Robert Page, Elliott Ward, Marcus Hall; Chris Birchall, Michael Doyle, Stephen Hughes, Kevin Thornton (Colin Cameron 70'); Stern John (Isaac Osbroune 82'), Kevin Kyle (Don Hutchinson 70').

Norwich City XI: Paul Gallacher; Jurgen Colin, Gary Doherty, Jason Shackell; Youssef Safri, Adam Drury, Lee Croft, Dickson Etuhu (Ian Henderson 66'), Carl Robinson; Robert Earnshaw, Darren Huckerby (Paul McVeigh 50').
