Coventry are missing fixtures against Shrewsbury Town, Lincoln City, Wycombe Wanderers and Accrington Stanley during the break with them due to return on 4th April against Peterborough United. Whether that will be their next game nobody knows and it is dependent on developments of the COVID-19 virus.

Mark Robins has spoken about the situation, as per Coventry Live: “There’s no concern about anything at the minute. We’re just living day to day and waiting to be told what to do. It’s other people who make those decisions but I am certainly not going to worry about anything. I don’t think there’s any need to worry about anything like that.”

“It’s out of my control and I’m not going to worry about it and neither are the players, I don’t suppose. We just need to reconvene and get back on with preparing to resume on the date we have been given.”
