Coventry City news | Whether the Sky Blues are promoted or not, there is the potential that they could be a number of new local derbies on the cards.

Coventry City are gunning for promotion to the Championship this season with just 15 games left to play.

Whether are promoted or not, there is the potential that there could be a number of new local derbies on the cards for those who love an away day to sink their teeth into.

Championship football would guarantee trips to face the likes of Derby County and Birmingham City, but could also secure long awaited away trips to take on Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion should they both suffer poor ends to the season.

Here are the six derbies Coventry could find themselves involved in next season...

This season's landlords. Birmingham City look set to retain their Championship status this term having forced a 13 point gap between themselves and the bottom three.

The Sky Blues squared off with their St. Andrews rivals twice this term and were desperately unlucky not to leave as winners on both ocassions.

Callum O'Hare's last-minute miss robbed them of progression in the FA Cup the first time and, in the replay, it took a penalty shootout to separate the sides.

Mark Robins' side need a lot to happen to end their ten year wait for a clash with West Bromwich Albion.

City have not been to the Hawthorns since 2010, falling to a 1-0 defeat to a side on their way to Premier League promotion.

Coventry's last win in West Bromwich came in 2007 when late goals from Leon Best and Michael Mifsud helped them to a 4-2 victory.

Walsall are, admittedly, an outside shot at League Two promotion this season - but stranger things have happened.

The Saddlers are nine points behind the top six with 12 games left to play in the fourth division.

City have ventured to the Bescot Stadium on a number of occasions in recent seasons, including a memorable 1-0 win with the Sky Blues setting their sights on promotion as Franck Moussa grabbed the winning goal.

Coventry have not made the trip north to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest since 2012, despite having enjoyed a handful of memorable trips to take on their rivals Notts County in the meantime.

City have won just two of their last eight trips to face Forest, and fell to defeat on their last trip thanks to a stunning solo goal from Gareth McCleary that dragged the Sky Blues closer to relegation to League One.

And they would ultimately fall to relegation that season, with a defeat at home to Doncaster Rovers.

Derby County, who currently boast Wayne Rooney amongst their ranks, will almost certainly be playing Championship football next term  - and will lock horns with the Sky Blues should City secure promotion this term.

Coventry have not been to Pride Park since 2012 and have not won away against the Rams since 2003 and have lost on their last four trips.

The big one. The one we have all been waiting for. It has been over 20 years since Coventry and Aston Villa have locked horns.

The last time proved fatal for City's Premier League status - something the Sky Blues are yet to get back.

Villa are currently tipped to return to the Championship next term, say the bookies, and promotion for Coventry would see the two clubs reunited in the second division.
