It may be some way short of the 30,000+ attendance that saw the Crewe Alexandra game in 2013 but a bigger than usual crowd will still be at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday evening as Coventry City attempt to defeat Wycombe Wanderers in the Football League Trophy and reach a Wembley final for the first time since 1987.

Calls have been made elsewhere for the divisions and protest to be put aside and for the crowd to play their part in pushing the Sky Blues to victory.

It will be hugely difficult to do so as Wycombe are performing well in League Two and their squad contains plenty of the type of seasoned, battle-hardened characters who have caused the downfall of City in many of their matches to date this season.

But the competition, despite its ill-judged format, has seen the Sky Blues play with a little bit of freedom in a campaign when they appear to have been frozen in the headlights on more than occasion.

That gives a little bit of hope that the home side can edge through and set up a day in North London that will allow Coventry fans of all ages to celebrate their support and, for once, not worry too much about what the future holds.
