Coventry City fans' worst fears were confirmed when the club announced that they would be playing their home matches at Sixfields, Northampton. 

Next season's 'home stadium' is located 32 miles away from Coventry and has a 7000-capacity.

Understandably, there has been an angry reaction from Coventry City supporters and many have said that they will boycott home games and refuse to travel outside Coventry to watch 'Coventry City'. 

Mark Robins turned Coventry's fortunes around after guiding them back into the play-off picture but he then left the club to join Huddersfield. 

While this was going on - rent wasn't being paid and Coventry's financial situation was growing more precarious which led to them falling into administration and consequently losing 10 points. 

Key players have already left the club and despite being taken over recently - it hasn't stopped the misery and this is the salt in wound for the fans of the troubled club. 

The 1987 FA Cup winners had previously spent 34 years in the top flight and were eventually relegated in 2001. 

They were tipped to go straight back up but that never materialised and things have took a huge turn for the worse. 

SISU are the major contributors to City's downfall since there takeover in 2007 they've seen key players such as Scott Dann, Leon Best and Keiron Westwood all leave the club and mainly because of finances. 

They also saw the club relegated from the Championship in 2012 after 11 years in the Championship. 

Things have hit rock bottom however could it get worse? 

Could this cause yet another relegation or could we even see the end of this historic club who, sentimentally belong in the Premier League.
