Foxes v Sky Blues

Coventry City make a rare live appearance on the BBC this weekend when they travel to the Walkers Stadium to face Leicester City in a local derby.

Both sides are looking the right way in the Championship, the Foxes having carried on their title-winning form from League One last season while the Sky Blues are free of relegation worries for the first time at this stage of the season under Chris Coleman.

Having played for both clubs, Dion Dublin is pleased to see the teams meet in happier circumstances than in previous seasons.

Speaking to the Leicester Mercury, he said: 'It should be a great game, bragging rights are on the line for both teams but three points are ultimately all that matters.

'It's just nice that I am talking about my two old teams contesting a play-off battle, after some of the problems both clubs have had in recent times.'

The visitors will look to bounce back from their midweek defeat against Cardiff which came in controversial circumstances.

Assistant manager Steve Harrison: 'We've got to keep it in perspective and look at our progress. We're now looking at competing with the big teams in the division and we're doing that well.'

City, big outsiders for the game with Titan Bet hope to have influential midfielder Sammy Clingan back for the game. He scored in the 1-1 draw between the two sides at the start of October.
