LAST VISIT THERE:

The last time we played Coventry away was back in March 1964 in the old Third Division. The game was played at Highfield Road, and of course the Sky Blues have since moved to the Ricoh Arena, but problems with the current owners of the stadium have seen Coventry seek to play elsewhere.

, Vale’s game has now been moved to the following daythThe Football League finally gave them permission to share with Northampton Town for the next three seasons. Because The Cobblers have a fixture there on March 15

The last time Vale appeared at the Sixfields Stadium was in October last season, when goals from Northampton’s Alex Nicholls and Louis Moult saw Vale return home empty-handed.
