Cov hoping for one Hull of a good performance…

Two years ago, almost to the day, Coventry was about to embark on its 2015/16 campaign with a home game against Wharfedale. It was a time of great optimism, with the club having finished a commendable third the season before, recruited strongly (so we were led to believe) and having had a very encouraging pre-season…
