Ricoh Arena: Coventry have reached an agreement over final three home games

Paul Appleton, joint administrator for Coventry City FC Ltd and Arena Coventry Ltd, confirmed the news in a statement on Thursday morning.

City have been locked in a year-long rent row with ACL, their landlords.

There had been fears that Coventry might have to play their remaining home games - against Doncaster on Good Friday before matches against Brentford and Leyton Orient next month - on neutral ground, but those fears have now been assuaged.

A statement read: "We apologise profusely to our fans about the confusion surrounding these fixtures and are delighted that this has now been resolved.

"We can now look forward to playing current league leaders Doncaster on Friday 29th March in the hope of doing the double over them.

"Moving forward we hope that we can continue a constructive dialogue with ACL with the aim of securing a sustainable future for the club at the Ricoh Arena."

The club are still waiting to hear if they will face an automatic 10-point deduction from the Football League after being ruled to be 'in administration'.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
