Norwich star expects 'tough' game

Coventry City host Norwich City at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday looking for a similar performance to Wednesday night when they should have beaten QPR.

The Canaries have transformed their season under Glenn Roeder and midfielder Darel Russell, who is set to return from suspension, said: 'Coventry is the sort of game you can look forward to.

'It's a nice stadium and the pitch was good last year.

'They're a big club that isn't doing quite as well as it should for a club that size.

"We expect a tough battle but it's one that I'm relishing.

'Since the manager came in we've had a very good away record and that gives us confidence to go anywhere and win. We just need to go and enjoy ourselves."

Roeder, who confirmed that Darren Huckerby is unlikely to play, added: 'I understand Coventry have played much better since Chris Coleman came in and that they created enough chances against QPR on Wednesday to have wrapped the game up.'

Off the pitch for the Canaries the future looks bright as well. Norwich have just announced that 18,312 fans have signed up for season tickets for the 2008/09 campaign.

Strong marketing in the local community over a number of years means the club can rely heavily on season ticket sales when budgeting ahead.

The Sky Blues, with a bigger stadium to fill and fewer season ticket holders, really need to be going down this route in order to fill the Ricoh Arena.

We're expecting a fight down your way. Obviously I hope we win, but I don't want to see you go down, Coleman could be brilliant for you.
