Some half decent news for Cov

Crisis club Coventry have signed striker Mathieu Manset after being given special dispensation by the Football League.

The Sky Blues have been operating under a transfer embargo since the start of March but manager Steven Pressley has finally been able to bring in a new face to bolster his threadbare ranks.

City have not yet fully exited the embargo but they have now been granted permission to sign players under the League's supervision.

No action over Cov fracas

The Football Association is unlikely to take any disciplinary action following a minor pitch invasion by Coventry supporters during Saturday's Sky Bet League One clash at Crawley, Press Association Sport understands.

A dozen or so Sky Blues fans - frustrated by off-field events at the crisis club - went on to the Broadfield Stadium pitch and held up play for three minutes after seeing their side go 2-0 down midway through the first half.

Stewards and police chased the invaders before escorting them off the field of play, although it is currently unconfirmed as to whether any arrests were made by Sussex Police.


Skipper excited by beasty trialist

Coventry captain Carl Baker has described the club's mystery trialist as 'a beast' and is backing the Frenchman to be a real danger if he commits his future to the Sky Blues.

He's a great lad, which is important. He's fairly quiet and shy but he's a beast on the pitch and I wouldn't like him to run full-on into me.

The sooner the club identify him the better because I am sick of being asked on Facebook and saying I can't tell you.

But he's been fantastic in his first couple of games. His fitness is not 100 per cent there yet but I think that when he is up to speed he'll be a real danger for us.

It's nice to see the gaffer has got lads on trial and trying to bring new players in because he obviously wants us to be strong for the start of the new season.
