'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The hazy days of summer!

Coventry City and Leicester City meet in the Championship this weekend in the reverse fixture from the opening day of the season at the Ricoh Arena, played out in the sunshine and ending in a 1-0 win for the Foxes.

That match went to script with the big-spenders, led by Sven Goran Eriksson, controlling much of the play and rarely being threatened by the Sky Blues.

It was little more than home fans had feared after a summer of mostly outward movement in the transfer market. A struggle to create chances and goals was predicted and came to pass, despite the best efforts of Lukas Jutkiewicz.

'problems'

The Juke is now gone and went with best wishes but the City side of that day has changed for the better, largely in midfield and attack where McSheffrey`s move to the left-hand side and the combination of Platt and Nimely are likely to pose more problems for Leicester this weekend.

As for the Foxes, whose celebrations at the Ricoh Arena were meant to be the beginning of an unstoppable march to promotion, things haven`t gone quite the way they were planned.

Eriksson has received another lucrative pay-off after having his contract terminated but Nigel Pearson hasn`t quite been able yet to halt the inconsistency that has made it touch and go that his side will make the play-offs.
