Coventry City are set for a bumper away following when they arrive at Ewood Park next weekend.

Rovers have granted the Sky Blues another 1,000 tickets for the October 16 meeting after supporters snapped up the initial 2,700 allocation.

The total allocation now stands at 3,794, and with those expected to sell out as well, Coventry say they are waiting on information about the prospect of paying on the day.

Tickets for the game, priced at £25 for adults, will go on general sale on Monday.

Confidence is high among the Sky Blues supporters, with 22 points to their name from the opening 11 games leaves them third in the table.

A 4-1 win over Fulham before the international break ensured a 100 per cent start to the season at the Ricoh Arena, with six wins out of six.

Things have proven more difficult on their travels, with a 5-0 defeat at Luton Town last time out one of three defeats on the road, failing to score in losses at Barnsley (1-0) and QPR (2-0) though they did win 1-0 at Blackpool and drew 1-1 at Millwall.

The sides drew 1-1 at Ewood Park in February, the first league meeting between the sides since 1998/99, though they had met four times in the cup competitions inbetween.

This will be the first time the Sky Blues fans will have been able to watch their side at Ewood in a league fixture since a 2-1 win in November 1998. Indeed, they are unbeaten in their last six visits to Rovers who last tasted victory against the Sky Blues at home in January 1997 when Chris Sutton scored twice, with Kevin Gallacher and Giorgos Donis also on target.
