Coventry City failed to make the play-offs in League One this season and finished in 9th place with Wigan finishing top under new manager and former Newcastle center-back Gary Caldwell.
Burton Albion were second on 84 points, 3 points behind Wigan.
Coventry finished with 66 points and Adam Armstrong had an excellent season on loan with The Sky Blues scoring 19 goals and 5 assists in 39 games.

Adam also won a trio of awards at Coventry earlier this week bagging the Young Player of the Year, Top Goalscorer and the Goal of the Season awards.
The local lad was also named in the Team of the Season for League One last month – so Adam has had a very good loan spell and will be fighting for his place at Newcastle next season – whatever league we are in.
Adam was interviewed at the Coventry awards ceremony a couple of days ago and he was asked if he expected to do so well:
“Definitely not. I know I have got the talent to be the best I can be and to get 19 goals will hopefully push me on in my career.”
“I’d like to test myself at a higher level, coming to League One I didn’t know what to expect and I am delighted with how well it has gone and now I’m raring to go.”
“I’ll be back at Newcastle and see where that takes me.”
“The staff and manager have been brilliant. Tony Mowbray has been a major influence and helped me out a lot and I have nothing but high praise for him and his staff.”
“I’ll certainly be looking out for Coventry’s results in the future.”
“I have had some nice messages from Newcastle fans and the Coventry fans have been brilliant to me all season.”
“It’s an amazing feeling to be on the pitch and the fans singing your name, and the awards are a perfect way to end my season.”
“Going on loan I didn’t know what to expect so to get three awards has been massive for me, I’d like to thank everyone who stood by me.
“My family who came to every game, my girlfriend and her parents – they have all supported me really well.”
There’s a slim chance that Adam could go out on loan again next season, but we really expect the 19 year-old to be good enough to be fighting for his first team place at Newcastle next season.
He could even make another huge breakthrough next season and be a star at his hometown club.
