There will be an article on Coventry City on the new Late Kick Off programme which kicks off on BBC1 on Monday night.

The programme which features Leicester fan Manesh Bhasin and Robbie Savage, can be seen on BBC Midlands at 11.05pm.

The blurb for the programme is as follows:

Manish Bhasin is back with a new series of the Football League magazine show, Late Kick Off on BBC One.

Late Kick Off
More than just a highlights programme, it's the only Football League show that gets to grips with what the fans are talking about and what matters to them most. Late Kick Off will be there following all the ups and downs - both on and off the pitch - as the Football League season draws to its dramatic climax.

Manish Bhasin, a well known face on BBC sports programmes such as Football Focus and the Football League Show, will continue to bring his own sporting expertise to the programme while guests and pundits from the world of football promise to kick off some lively debates on the week's hottest topics.

There will also be regular features each week from the 11 clubs in the Midlands region - Burton Albion, Cheltenham Town, Coventry City, Derby County, Hereford United, Leicester City, Nottingham Forest, Notts County, Port Vale, Shrewsbury Town and Walsall.

Derby County captain and broadcaster Robbie Savage will join Bhasin in the studio. Savage co-hosts Radio 5Live's 606 phone-in, has appeared on Match of the Day Live, Match of the Day 2 and Football Focus this season, and is a regular Premier League match co-commentator on 5Live.

Managers and the players making the headlines will join Bashin and Savage in the studio to discuss the weekend's action, and the big issues of the day.

And each week there will be a special feature on the region's match of the weekend.

Bhasin says: "It's great to be back and the second series looks set to be stronger than ever. With all the latest goal action and high quality sports journalism, fans will get to see what is really going on behind the scenes at their local club in the Midlands."
