Only 1,773 at Morecambe v @Coventry_City – the smallest away crowd for a CCFC game since 1932 when 1,215 saw us at Thames FC.

And those who travelled from Coventry and elsewhere, on a freezing December day, were left to wonder why as the Sky Blues slipped to a 2-0 defeat against League Two’s lowest goalscorers.
Mark Robins, having talked up his side throughout the season to date, was left to reflect on a performance he described as ‘absolutely horrendous’ from start to finish.
Jordan Shipley and Duckens Nazon came in for individual criticism from their manager.
Nazon’s goals have made him a favourite of supporters since joining on loan from Wolves but what managers see and expect from a player and it will be interesting to see whether a further loan deal is pursued in January or whether Robins feels something different is needed in his attacking options.
The Sky Blues now turn their attentions to the festive period. Like many other aspects of being a City fan, this is a time of year that we should all be looking forward to but has been stripped of much of its enjoyment by the way our club has been and continues to be run.
There has been no initiative whatsoever to get people through the turnstiles for the upcoming home double-header against Cheltenham and Wycombe Wanderers.
Particularly the Wycombe game, being on the Friday night before Christmas, is ripe for reduced ticket prices to try and generate some sort of atmosphere for Robins and his team.
