THE FIRST wave of interviews for the Coventry City manager's job will be complete by the weekend.
More than 40 applications have been received by the club with Steve Waggott revealing some 'high-calibre individuals' had put their names into the hat.
Speaking to the Observer, the Sky Blues' development director said he would not be rushed into a knee-jerk decision.
He is expected to narrow it down to three or four applicants before Sisu boss Joy Seppala steps in to complete the gruelling process.
Lee Carsley will remain in charge for Saturday's league game with Crewe at the Ricoh Arena.
City hope to push up the attendance by offering £5 off for fans who watched the club's 3-0 defeat to Alex in the Johnstone's Paint area final home leg.
It will put adult tickets at £17 in the vast majority of the ground, with concession prices ranging from £8 to £13 and JSBs from free to £3.
Dan Walker, ticketing manager for Coventry City, said: "We had a fantastic attendance at the JPT home leg and, while we didn’t win the match, lots of supporters who haven’t been for a while have said how much they enjoyed the occasion."
Season ticket holders can claim the £5 off for a family member or friend.
Tickets are on sale at www.ccfcshop.co.uk or by calling 0844 873 1883.
