How much difference has a year made?

How much difference has a year made?

The 2009/10 season contained two rock bottom moments for the Sky Blues, the second of course being the home capitulation against Watford in what turned out to be Chris Coleman's final game in charge.

The first came just under a year ago when a City side without a win in eight games turned in an abject display in front of the Sky cameras at Glanford Park, the home of Scunthorpe United.

Coleman cut a dejected figure on the sidelines as his men failed to muster any kind of coherent attack on goal and the last remaining optimism from a solid start to the season slowly faded away.

The new year of course did see a City revival of sorts but the problems that had been evident throughout October, November and December had not gone away, merely been temporarily pushed to one side.

Now it is Aidy Boothroyd's turn to take his side to Glanford Park, where a side that has ambitions to finish the season in the right half of the table must be looking to take away a positive result.

The Sky Blues will line up with a much stronger looking XI than in the corresponding fixture (Coleman to be fair had a number of injury problems at the time) when hopes for an equaliser were pinned on a young, loanee striker from Carlisle and Boothroyd has already started the preparations, saying that the game will be City's 'hardest of the season' to date.

And a good test of how far he has taken the club in a short space of time.
