Rise Together: Coventry City Under Mark Robins examines the rebirth of Coventry City FC from 2017 to 2020.

Having sunk to the depths of English football’s lowest professional division, the Sky Blues were a million miles from the FA Cup-winning heyday of 1987 and the glitz and glamour of Premier League football.

After a decade of decline, a constant churn of managers, coaches and players, the arrival of Mark Robins for a second spell in charge would end all that.

Backed by a fanbase desperate for success, winning the 2017 Football League Trophy was just the beginning. Robins would mould Coventry City into a side capable of something few at the club had achieved before – success.

That first trophy at Wembley would be followed by two more – victory in the 2018 League Two play-off final, then the League One title in 2020.

With off-the-field issues continuing to dog the club, including a second move out of Coventry, the story of Rise Together is one that every football fan will appreciate.
