Coventry City have been relegated from the npower Championship after a 2-0 defeatat home to Doncaster Rovers.

With five points between themselves and safety prior to the match against Doncaster, only a win, coupled with a loss for Bristol City, would have given them any chance of survival going into the final weekend of the season. However, two goals in the last nine minutes of their home match against Rovers ensured they would be starting next season in the third tier of English football.

The Sky Blues are currently the longest serving club in the npower Championship having spent 11 consecutive seasons in the division following relegation from the top flight in 2001, where they had spent their previous 34 years. They will now need to prepare for life in League 1, a division they were promoted out of in 1964 under the guidance of Jimmy Hill.
