Coventry City announce that they have appealed to the Football League to reinstate their 10-point deduction.

Coventry City have announced that they have lodged an appeal to the Football League against the 10-point deduction handed to them.

The League One outfit dropped to 14th place in the table as punishment for one of their subsidiary companies going into administration.

The club released a statement saying: "Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd has submitted an appeal to the Football League to have the 10 points deducted last week reinstated.

"The points were deducted following the administration of CCFC Ltd. The club will keep supporters informed of the progress of the appeal."

Meanwhile, the club last week came to an agreement to hold their remaining home matches of the season at the Ricoh Arena following a dispute with the stadium owners.
