Coventry vs Fleetwood by Hassy

High flying Coventry City welcome back old manager Steven Pressley to the Ricoh arena and I am sure he will get a good reception on his return. Most recently Coventry City have found themselves in a slump and have gone through a period of poor form. This poor run saw them go winless in five league games and they have won only two of their last eight games. However, in their last game they registered a superb 6-0 win over Bury so their fans will be hoping the slump has ended. The Sky Blues are more than capable now on going on a run similar to the one that propelled them to the top of the division through the winter months. They have won nine times at home and have only failed to win seven times in front of their own fans and have scored the most goals at home in the division.


For Coventry, Second-choice keeper Lee Burge has been ruled out with a shoulder injury and he will be replaced on the bench by youngster Corey Addai. Defenders Aaron Martin and Martin Lorentzson have both returned to training following injury but the game could come too early. Captain Reda Johnson remains sidelined with a hamstring injury which will keep him out for the rest of the season.


Northern Ireland international Conor McLaughlin remains sidelined for Fleetwood with the knee injury he suffered against Gillingham last weekend.


Fleetwood are currently in 20th place after losing 1-0 at Rochdale on Tuesday night and are without an away win since October. They are in the midst of a relegation scrap and don't have much positive form for them to come into the game with much confidence. They have won only two of their last eight league games (both at home) and not won away from home since October. Infact, they are on an eight game winless run on their travels and coming to one of the best home sides in the division is not something that bodes well for them.


Stephen Jordan and Tyler Forbes both suffered hamstring complaints in the loss at Rochdale, adding to Steven Pressley's worries. However, Joe Davis returned from injury to replace Jordan 10 minutes before half-time and could now start. Captain Nathan Pond remains on the fast-track to return from a hamstring problem, although this match comes too soon.


Coventry City have got 19 more points than Fleetwood at this stage. The visitors are simply woeful on the road and really struggle to score goals. They have only picked up ten points on the road and have scored a paltry 33 goals all season. Coventry have an abundance of attacking options and I expect them to win to
