Coventry City 4 Grimsby Town 0

Ricoh Arena… Saturday March 24th… 3pm

Attendance: 8,755

Ticket: £24 – Programme: £3

Almost into April, and a second new ground of the season. This being my first ever visit to the Ricoh Arena..

After a shaky first half hour, where relegation threatened Grimsby created the better of the chances, Coventry began to assert control. So once Peter Vincenti put Coventry ahead, there was only ever going to be one winner…

Marc McNulty put the game comfortably beyond doubt with his second half hat-trick…

Another defeat for Nuneaton Town, although a much improved first-half performance…
