Coventry City will play a home match outside the city today, for the first time in the club's 130 year history.

The Sky Blues have moved to Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium for at least three years.

It follows a long-running rent row with the Ricoh Arena, which saw the club fall into administration.

Around 500 Coventry fans are expected to go the match.

Meanwhile, thousands of supporters will instead be at another game happening at the same time.

A legends match has been organised at the Ricoh Arena, to celebrate the club's 130th anniversary.
