Coventry City Chairman Tim Fisher has said that it is important that the Sky Blues support the Stonewall Rainbow Laces campaign and Kick It Out campaign after reports of an incidents prior to the Sky Blues' 3-0 win at Luton Town.

There were rainbow coloured corner flags at the Ricoh Arena for the Sky Blues game against Crawley Town and across the Football League and writing in his programme notes, Mr Fisher wrote: "It is important that we as a club and community support this important campaign both now and through out the year.

"We want Coventry City matches, both home and away, to be an inclusive enviroment where anyone and everyone can support their team, irrespective of their sexual orientation and that LGBT fans know they can support the team in a safe and welcoming enviroment.

"We will be further displaying our equality and anti discrimination stance later this season with our dedicated fixture for Kick It Out.

"There were reports at our away game at Luton Town of two racist and LGBT discrimatory incidents prior to the match, which we completely condemn.

"This goes to highlight the importance of actively taking part in these campaigns and the role which we have in eradicating from football and society of this type of abuse."
