Coventry City fans expressed anger last night with a mid-match protest.
They held up signs saying "Why?" and "When?" to question why the club left the Ricoh Arena to play at Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium and when the Sky Blues will return to Coventry.
The protests took place in the 35th and 61st minutes of the FA Cup game against Arsenal. The 35th minute was chosen because it represents the distance in miles between Coventry and Sixfields, where the Sky Blues currently play their home matches.
The second protest was staged after half-time, 61 minutes in, reflecting Jimmy Hill's takeover of the club in 1961, which marked a major period of transformation for the club.
Coventry lost 4-0 to Arsenal.
Just 1,100 fans travelled to Northampton's Sixfields stadium for the Sky Blues' first 'home' game at their new base.
There were protests outside by angry fans demanding the team be kept in their home city.
Meanwhile, around six times that many headed to the Ricoh Arena for a legends match in celebration of the club's 130th anniversary.
