209 away supporters to be exact and their trip to Gigg Lane was to bring a familiar feeling on Tuesday evening as Coventry City suffered yet another away defeat.

Two first-half goals for Bury, from Vaughan and Pope, did the damage as the hosts restricted City to Stuart Beavon’s strike after the break.

Results elsewhere mean the Sky Blues are now fourteen points away from safety in League One and with only twelve matches left to play.

Russell Slade may have led the club to the Wembley final of the Football League Trophy but his record in charge of league matches makes for grim reading and yet again a side in the relegation scrap alongside City have had more than enough to take three crucial points away from the game.

A similar trip to Shrewsbury awaits on Saturday, with the inevitable reshuffling of the Sky Blues starting XI but, most people will fear, a similar result looking to be the most likely outcome.
