It all comes down to Saturday afternoon and a final home game for Coventry City against Morecambe in League Two when a point will be enough to put the Sky Blues into the play-offs for the first time in their history.
Saturday’s 6-1 victory at Cheltenham was another example of how Mark Robins’ team have bounced back from disheartening defeats all season to keep alive their hopes of getting back into League One at the first attempt.
And although there are bound to be regrets about how some of those defeats, especially at the hands of the division’s struggling sides, have halted any chance of a top-three finish, to have something positive to play for in the final game of the season is still a rarity for Coventry City supporters.
A point will do it and that same point would also ensure Morecambe’s safety, barring a Barnet goal bonanza against already-relegated Chesterfield, and I think it suits the Sky Blues more to have an opponent with something to play for as the Shrimps will be racked with doubts of their own as to how they play the game.
Morecambe have already had that dilemma once in Saturday’s relegation showdown against Barnet and struggled to take the initiative against a Bees side with nothing to lose.
