Sideways Sammy's City V Scunthorpe Match Preview

Last updated : 03 August 2018 By SS

With the madness of the transfer window in full swing at the moment, those memories of Jordan Willis, Jordan Shipley and Jack Grimmer each scoring worldies at a delirious Wembley back in May are starting to seem like distant ones. In those glorious few days before and after promotion, this club seemed to be blazing a trail towards destiny, the past month has been a reminder that supporting Coventry City in League One is quite a lot like supporting Coventry City in League Two, minus that level of fear of dropping into the abyss of non-league.

An underwhelming pre-season has tempered the optimism to a degree, but a new season always brings new possibilities and now is the time to get all giddy about what could be in store. We may be minus a goalscoring striker in Marc McNulty, but in Tom Bayliss we have a young talent who could be set to take the division by storm, plus a fully-fit Tony Andreu and a soon-to-be-fit Jodi bloody Jones.
