New Signing For City Ahead Of Seaside Trip

New Signing For City Ahead Of Seaside Trip

Coventry City aim to make it two wins out of two in League Two on Saturday afternoon when they face one of their former managers for the second time this week.

Russell Slade of Grimsby Town is the foe this time after Tony Mowbray`s winning return to the Ricoh Arena with Blackburn Rovers in midweek.

The Sky Blues were much-changed for that fixture, Mark Robins making his intentions clear by resting some key figures and handing an opportunity to one or two of his younger players.

It should be back to the team that defeated Notts County for the trip to Cleethorpes, barring injury problems, although Robins has another new face in his squad after Thursday's deal to sign attacking midfielder Tony Andreu on a two-year contract after his departure from Norwich City.

Robins believes the 'goalscoring number ten' will be a big hit with City fans and the visitors are set to be backed by a large travelling support on Saturday.

1,250 tickets had been sold by Thursday as supporters prepare for a day at the seaside, a few beers and hopefully another positive performance from their side.

The weather forecast is for a dry day with sunny spells, a start contrast to Tuesday evening when Grimsby`s cup tie with Derby County had to be abandoned midway through the first-half due to the torrential rain that was hitting the area.
