Coventry have appointed Steve Taylor as the club's first-team coach ahead of the Sky Blues' clash with Carlisle.

The 42-year-old links up with Robins for a third time after working with him at both Barnsley and Rotherham.

"I'm delighted to be here and the response we have had from the players so far has been fantastic," Taylor told Coventry's official website.

"I've only had a couple of training sessions with the players, but the tempo has been good and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

Taylor took up coaching as a 20-year-old after his football career was cut-short through injury and spent 20-years doing various roles at Derby County.
