Sky TV snub for City; FOOTBALL.

SKY TV bosses have delivered a snub to the Sky Blues after it was revealed they are the only Coca-Cola Championship club who do not feature in the list of live TV games released earlier this week.

The broadcaster has announced that it will be screening 28 live Football League matches between the big kick-off on August 6 and Sunday November 20.

Every Coca-Cola Championship team appears at least once on the list except the Sky Blues.

Derby County head the list of TV appearances with four of their matches being screened live, followed by Wolves and Crystal Palace who each feature three times.

The Sky Blues' omission is all the more surprising that the club is moving to a new stadium this season.
