A meeting took place last night with Coventry City supporters to discuss the football club's future.

The Sky Blues Supporters Trust were looking at the possibility of fans taking over the club from current owners Sisu.

The Chairman of the Trust, Moz Baker, said that they will be doing a survey to find out what the supporters want from the club:

Well we'll be putting in place an action plan.

First and foremost we'll be doing a survey of supporters to identify what they want out of any potential supporter involvement in the club.

We'll take it from there but this is the start.
