It`s an early break from Championship action for Coventry City on Tuesday night as they travel to Gigg Lane to face Bury in the first round of this season`s League Cup.
Last season's top goalscorer Ryan Lowe showed on Saturday that he will once again be the Shakers' man to watch, netting the equaliser in a creditable 1-1 draw against promotion favourites Huddersfield Town as Bury began life in League One.
This time last season, then Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd made it clear that the League Cup was not a priority for him, making a raft of changes for the tie at Morecambe and seeing his suffer a 2-0 reverse. Andy Thorn does not have as many options available to him and will also want his side to get up and running for the new campaign after the weekend defeat to Leicester City but will have to make at least two enforced changes.
Captain Sammy Clingan is on international duty and will miss the game while Carl Baker begins a three-match ban. Thorn also has to contend with reports that central defender Ben Turner is set for a move to Birmingham City ahead of Saturday`s meeting between the two sides.
"We`ll be going to Bury with a full squad and we`ll be going there with every intention of winning the game," he told the official CCFC website.
City have rarely made an impact on the League Cup since some good runs under John Sillett in the late 80`s and early 90`s, barring the win over Manchester United a few years ago. A good run in the competition now would help to generate some much-needed finance and interest in the club`s fortunes.
