Coventry City face a crucial weekend in their quest for promotion from League Two with the Sky Blues facing matches on Good Friday and Easter Monday.

A long trip to Newport County is first up for a meeting with a side whose play-off ambitions now look to be over although a mid-table finish will still represent great progress after their last-gasp escape from relegation to the National League in 2016/17.

They suffered a huge blow recently when captain Joss Labadie suffered a serious knee injury in training and was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

With City not in action on Saturday there are plenty of local matches taking place.

Coventry Sphinx host Rugby Town in a local derby in the Midland Football League Premier Division while Leamington, Bedworth United, Stratford United and Coventry United are all at home.

The Sky Blues return to CV6 on Monday for a game against a Yeovil team who can taste safety in the division after a crucial 1-0 victory at Colchester United at the weekend.

Mark Robins’ side have dealt with this kind of challenge with increasing confidence in recent weeks and will know that a haul of four points at a minimum will set up a huge clash with Notts County the following weekend.
