Coventry City Versus Brentford

Coventry City Versus Brentford

After a week in which Coventry City's ultimate supremo, SISU boss Joy Seppala, broke her silence on the club's current position, it is back to action at 'home' this weekend and another dose of Sunday football for Sky Blues supporters.

Brentford are the visitors to Sixfields and come on the back of a home defeat at the hands of early leaders Leyton Orient.

New signing Will Grigg remains confident, however, and the former Walsall man said this week: 'If we get balls in the right areas then I`d like to think I`ll cause any team problems.

'We've got a great set of lads here. It has been easy to settle in and now we just want to put some points on the board.

'All over the pitch we have good players we just need to make sure we start gelling as a team and turn those 65- minute performances into goals.'

Momentum on the pitch has eased slightly the pressure on the Sky Blues hierarchy after a summer of turmoil but the 10-point penalty means that the relegation zone is still a lot closer than the top six.

Steven Pressley's side have played with ever increasing confidence at their temporary home and will be looking to do so against a team that came within a whisker of promotion last season.

City's boss told the official club website: "They are serious players this year, no doubt about it. But, I believe the way we have gone about things this season shows we can get a result from anyone in the league.

"Our players have been giving everything to the club this season and I am really proud of that. We beat anybody and I'm sure our opposition knows that."

***Update*** Saturday's results have pushed City down to 22nd in the table. A win against Brentford will see the Sky Blues move up to 16th in League One.
