Saints Take On Coventry City Today
Tuesday, 1st Sep 2020 09:39
There has been no mention of the game on the Saints official site, but the media in the West Midlands are reporting that Coventry City will be visiting St Mary's on Tuesday afternoon for Saints second pre season friendly proper.
At one time Saints V Coventry City was a regular fixture on the calendar, but after the turn of the century it became less so and the Sky Blues have endured a torrid time of late and for a side that spent 34 consecutive years in the top flight until relegated in 2001, it has been a topsy turvy existence and at the moment they don't even have a ground to call their own.
It is good to see they are back in the Championship and they will provide a good test for Saints in front of a capacity crowd at St Mary's given the capacity at the moment is 0.
It will be interesting to see if this game will be split into various halves although I suspect that with Coventry facing an EFL Cup tie this Saturday at MK Dons it will be more of a straight forward 90 minute affair.
