The Sky Blues were last Thursday hit with the penalty by the League in accordance with their rules and regulations, effectively ending the League One club's hopes of a play-off place.

However, Coventry were given one week in which to appeal the decision and they have opted to do so.

A statement released on Thursday evening read: "Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd has submitted an appeal to the Football League to have the 10 points deducted last week reinstated.

"The points were deducted following the administration of CCFC Ltd. The club will keep supporters informed of the progress of the appeal."

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
