Coventry City say they will issue banning orders to anyone found to have taken part in a pitch invasion in the league match against Sheffield United.

Fans protesting at City's owners Sisu held the game up for six minutes late on in the 2-1 defeat on 15 December.

Coventry have started an investigation alongside the Football Association and English Football League.

The League One club said the behaviour was "unlawful" and "appropriate action" would be taken against those involved.

The Sky Blues, who appointed Russell Slade as manager on Wednesday, are 23rd in the table after six straight league losses.
