    Looks like most of the train sites are trying to take you through London or Nottingham, takes ages and costs more.

    If you use the trainsplit app (not website) or just do it yourself, you can go Cov>Nuneaton>Stamford>Peterborough and it takes an hour less (2h10m).

    Last leg of the journey is a 20min bus from Stamford to Peterborough, maybe why the normal sites aren't showing this journey. Leaving at 9:17 (in for 11:30) Coming back at 18:30 (in at 20:36) cost £26.60 without a rail card.

    Trainpal is a decent app for sorting out split tickets as well. Saved me £55 for a trip up to Newcastle by doing:

    Birmingham - York
    York -Newcastle.

    Didn't even have to change trains, it was the normal route the sneaky thieving bastards.

    Cov - Nuneaton £5.80 return.
    Nuneaton - Peterborough £14.50 return (19:30 return) or £18.20 (18:30 return) .

    £20.30 / £24 in total.

    Alternatively use thetrainline.com and get a Cov - Peterborough return for £50.15. Absolute conning bastards.

    I had to do a lot of searching but I found:
    Grande Prairie to Edmonton
    Edmonton to Calgary
    Calgary to Toronto
    Toronto to London
    London to Coventry
    Coventry to Nuneaton
    Nuneaton to Peterborough
    I leave right after the Tranmere game
