Coventry City’s 2-1 League One defeat at the hands of visiting Sheffield Wednesday was interrupted Thursday evening by a pitch invasion on the part of Sky Blues supporters, continuing their protests against the club’s hedge fund owners, Sisu. From the Mirror’s Alex Richards :
Prior to kickoff, fans had sang Christmas carols outside the ground targeting the club’s London owners and chief executive, Joy Seppala.
Throughout the televised clash, home fans continued to make their feelings known.
They delivered choruses of “we want Sisu out”, while after five minutes supporters from the area of the ground known as ‘singer’s corner’ made their way down the stand towards the pitch – in full view of the television cameras. Others continued to blow whistles, which Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp later admitted confused members of both sides.
One City fan managed to pass stewards during the half, making his way onto the playing surface and sitting in the centre circle as play stopped around him.
