Championship 2009/10: Cardiff City
Recent record: The clubs have met twelve times in the Championship since 2003, Cardiff winning five, City winning three and with four draws.
Former Sky Blues: Now playing for the seventh club of his professional career Jay Bothroyd enjoyed one of his most consistent seasons in 2008/09 and finally looks to have found some maturity to go with the talent he has always had.
The 27-year-old scored 12 goals and formed a potent partnership with Ross McCormack.
Summer talking point: As with Scott Dann's sale by the Sky Blues, Cardiff eventually had to bow to the greater financial muscle of the Premier League when accepting Birmingham City's third offer for centre-half Roger Johnson.
Coming to Coventry: In the middle of March.
