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

Back to where it started for City boss

Just over one year after taking temporary charge of Coventry City for their trip to face Burnley at Turf Moor, Andy Thorn's men return to Lancashire on Saturday in even greater danger of dropping out of the Championship.

Having been temporarily installed as Aidy Boothroyd's successor, Thorn ripped up the template of the previous boss and allowed his players (many of whom he had had a hand in signing as chief scout) licence to express themselves.

Gary McSheffrey in particular reaped the benefits of this as he showed straight away with an excellent goal as City earned a surprise 2-2 draw.

They will need to go one step better at the weekend if the Sky Blues are to pull off a great escape.

Burnley fan Oliver Norwood will be a key part of any victory and admits he cannot wait to play professionally for the first time at the ground where he used to be a season ticket holder.

'I've been waiting for this game to come round since I signed for Coventry,' he said.

'It will be a great experience for me, being a local lad and living a stone`s throw from the stadium when I was growing up.

'It feels like going home.'
