Last updated : 08 February 2019 By CNS Sport

There will be a minute's applause in the 15th minute of Coventry City's League One game at Rochdale tomorrow.

The minute's applause will be for Joe Thompson, who is retiring from playing professional football after twice beating cancer and coming back to play, scoring goals that kept Rochdale in League One and scoring against Tottenham in an FA Cup tie..

Speaking about Joe Thompson, who is moving to the Motivational Speaker circuit, City boss Mark Robins said: "It’s incredible and for Joe Thompson to have come back not once but twice and to score the goal that kept them up.

"I think he will be a miss because he is an incredible character."
