Coventry City versus Bradford City

Coventry City versus Bradford City

Coventry City take on Bradford City at Sixfields on Tuesday night with the pressure all but off the two sides after weekend victories away from home lifted them both eight points clear of the League One relegation zone.

'I have watched Coventry quite a few times in Northampton this season, mainly because a lot of their games have been on Sunday afternoon to avoid a clash with Northampton,' said Bantams boss Phil Parkinson ahead of the game.

I was also there last Wednesday (against Stevenage). The atmosphere is a bit surreal and it is up to us to make the most of that by imposing ourselves on the game.'

The Sky Blues have, in fact, lost only four of their nineteen 'home' games this season and it is possible that they are much more at ease with the 'surreal' atmosphere that Parkinson describes than visiting teams who only experience it once.

That record is of great credit to Steven Pressley and his players as they have made the best of a very bad situation.

The City boss is hoping that Callum Wilson will be fit for the game as he looks to continue an excellent run of form. Wilson and Nakhi Wells were the stars of the show when the two sides drew 3-3 in front of the Sky cameras at Valley Parade earlier in the season. Wells has now departed for Huddersfield while the Sky Blues cling to the hope that Wilson will remain with the club next season.
