It is believed that trouble broke out between Coventry City and Northampton Town fans near to R.A.O.B Social Club, Foleshill Road, Coventry at around 2.45pm on 27 August. A 62-year-old man was assaulted and needed hospital treatment for a head injury. Following the attack officers have released CCTV images of men they want to trace in connection with the disorder. PC Craig Harding, from the force’s football unit, said:

We would also like to take this opportunity to appeal to the men in the images to do the right thing and come forward as it is only a matter of time before we come knocking at your door."
