Coventry City will wear a one-off strip in next week's League Two play-off final after running out of this season's home kit.

The club face Exeter on at Wembley on Monday, 28 May, having beaten Notts County in the semi-finals on Friday.

In a statement, the Sky Blues Chief Executive Dave Boddy said "Having been unable to obtain new replacements of the existing kit, we have had to source a one-off shirt from our kit supplier for the play-off final."

The club have denied the situation was related to their generous donation of 30 boxes of kit to a Syrian refugee camp in Iraq earlier this month.

It is understood that this season's kit - a simple, sky blue number - was ordered in bulk in February 2017 and has sold well throughout the campaign.

With a large minimum order needed for more stock, the club decided to commission a one-off kit.
