Blackpool visit to test Sky Blues squad
It's two games in four days for Coventry City when they entertain Blackpool on Tuesday night at the Ricoh Arena, following on from the entertaining 1-1 draw against Reading from which Lukas Jutkiewicz's last-gasp penalty miss will still be on the minds of most Sky Blues' supporters.
Andy Thorn's small squad will be tested to the full by the return of a midweek programme to the Championship. City's defence again performed well on Saturday and further forward there were pleasing displays from Conor Thomas, Gary McSheffrey and the tireless Jutkiewicz.
The manager's options remain limited if he chooses to freshen things up but one potential change could be to bring Gary Deegan back into the fray after a long-term injury cut short the promising start he had made to his Sky Blues' career.
Deegan made the bench on Saturday and could be an option given the potential make-up of the Blackpool midfield.
The Tangerines, a Premier League side last season, have experience aplenty in the shape of Barry Ferguson and Keith Southern together with tricky wideman and a top-class striker in Kevin Phillips.
Given how City struggled last week against an Ipswich side with a similar look to it, a more destructive type of player in their own midfield may be needed to stop Thorn's side being overrun.
