Two clubs unlikely to win the Co-op bank’s customer of the year award clash at Hillsborough on Saturday as Sheffield Wednesday meet Coventry City.
Wednesday have been forced to deny talk of administration in the wake of chairman Dave Allen’s departure and like the Sky Blues they are waiting for someone to come in and ease the money worries.
Coventry’s need is much more pressing now of course as the 10-day deadline draws ever nearer but at least Tuesday’s win at West Brom has given the fans something to cheer about.
