The ideal game for Burnley to bounce back?

The ideal game for Burnley to bounce back?

Unfortunately for the Sky Blues, who are now firmly in the debit column in the eyes of their supporters after another tame home defeat, it is hard to escape the sense that they are the ideal opposition for a side looking to bounce back quickly from a surprise reverse.

That happened to Burnley on Saturday when Millwall travelled to Turf Moor and scored three goals without reply, a scenario that it is almost impossible to imagine being repeated on Tuesday night.

Coventry's away support will again travel in decent numbers and with faint hopes that Aidy Boothroyd can turn things around but based on Saturday's evidence optimism is hard to muster and by the end of the evening, with Scunthorpe hosting bottom club Preston North End, the gap between City and the drop zone could be as little as four points.

The Clarets had been playing well up until their Millwall moment and manager Eddie Howe remained calm afterwards, saying: 'We are still in a good position.

'Sometimes you learn more from a defeat and we have learned a lot today.

'An important part of winning is how you deal with setbacks and we need to try and find the intensity that was missing today.'
