Acid test awaits for Sky Blues

Coventry City, minus their international players, are working away on the training ground, looking to absorb more of the Aidy Boothroyd philosophy and turn themselves into genuine promotion contenders.

And an acid test awaits the Sky Blues when the Championship resumes.

A week on Saturday it is a trip to Portman Road, an unhappy hunting ground for City since their relegation from the top-flight with a record of 5 defeats and 3 draws from 8 games since 2002.

Roy Keane's side have shrugged off their inconsistent form of last season to currently lie 5th in the table with Jason Scotland, a goalscoring regular in the Championship with Swansea two seasons ago, finding his feet in the division again after a difficult season with Wigan Athletic.

Then its a Craig Bellamy-inspired Cardiff City at the Ricoh Arena as the man who remains Coventry City's record signing lines up against his former club.

The Bluebirds are 2nd in the table, hoping to shrug off the disappointment of last season when their play-off hopes disappeared at the last.
