Mark Robins' League One side travel to White Hart Lane to compete in the third round of this season's edition of the FA Cup, and ahead of a trip to London that is sure to send Coventry fans down memory lane.
Manager that day was John Sillett who had been invited to become chief coach after Don Mackay left Highfield Road in 1986. He was to galvanise the Sky Blues, as he had done in putting Hereford United on the footballing map some years earlier. He remained as the club’s boss until 1990. For years, he gave speeches to corporate guests at Highfield Road during Bryan Richardson’s spell as chairman.
He is still involved at the club on match days and is one of the club's most favourite sons.
