Can City crack safety over Easter?

Coventry City, having hauled themselves out of the relegation zone with their first away victory of the season on Saturday, face a crucial Easter period with two games in 48 hours that could go a long way towards deciding where they will be playing their football next season.

On Saturday the Sky Blues host a Peterborough United side who look safe following their win over Leicester City.

The Posh have been strong on their own patch this season but have not travelled too well while form at the Ricoh Arena has kept City in touch with those teams above them throughout 2012.

If Andy Thorn can coax another victory out of his side on home soil then there would be a four point gap between Coventry and Bristol City ahead of their trip to Nottingham Forest for the late kick-off.

Forest themselves will be looking to make sure of survival but, like the Sky Blues, have the momentum with them following an excellent away win at Crystal Palace.

Then on Easter Monday Bristol City host Thorn and his men in the archetypal six-pointer at Ashton Gate.

Long-suffering supporters of Coventry are always programmed to fear the worst but their side could be within touching distance of safety in just over a week's time.
