COVENTRY v ROTHERHAM - GAME OFF

Coventry's match against Rotherham today has been postponed. The pitch at Highfield Road is frozen, after overnight temperatures dropped to as low as -10 degrees.

City's next match will be the FA Cup 3rd round tie against Tottenham on Saturday at Highfield Road.

The extra few days may help Gary Breen and Lee Carsley regain fitness for the cup tie.


Lee MillsMILLS COMPLETES MOVE FROM PORTSMOUTH

Coventry have signed Portsmouth striker Lee Mills for a fee that will rise to  250,000 based on appearances.

Mills has been on loan at Highfield Road since the end of November and has now agreed a permanent deal.

Thirty-one year old Mills played only twice for Portsmouth this season after the arrival of Peter Crouch and Mark Burchill. Mills had joined Portsmouth from Bradford for 1million at the start of last season, but the south coast side were willing to take a loss on the sale to reduce their wage bill in the face of large debts.

Mills has impressed Roland Nilsson during his loan spell, scoring two goals in eight games.


Gary McAllisterMBE FOR McALLISTER

Former Coventry captain Gary McAllister received an MBE in the New Year Honours List.

It capped a remarkable year for the 37 year old Scot who bagged five cup winners medals with Liverpool since his free transfer from Coventry in May 2000.

McAllister was honoured for his 20 years as a professional footballer including a spell as captain of the Scottish national team.

During his four years with Coventry McAllister scored 26 goals in 140 matches.
