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

Coventry City vs. West Bromwich Albion

Ricoh Arena

FA Cup Preview

A cracking game in prospect at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday as the Sky Blues host the Baggies in the FA Cup 5th Round.

Albion are flying high in the Championship and have gained a reputation for their free-flowing football but have wobbled slightly of late and City's cup form gives us a fighting chance.

Vital Quotes: John Harbin

'Anything less than the sort of performance at Manchester United or Blackburn is probably not going to be good enough,' City's caretaker boss told The Telegraph.

'It is going to take an absolute top performance to beat West Brom.'

Coventry City Team News:

New signings from Walsall Danny Fox and Scott Dann are cup-tied. Marcus Hall is likely to come in for Fox.

Player to watch: Michael Mifsud

'It is the first time for me playing in the FA Cup and I am loving every single minute of it,' said the Maltese star as he looks to end a scoring drought in his new favourite competition.

West Bromwich Albion Team News:

South Korean international midfielder Do-heon Kim is in line to make his debut in place of the suspended Jonathan Greening.

Two of the injured trio of Roman Bednar, Zoltan Gera and Robert Koren should be fit.

Player to watch: Dean Kiely

The former Sky Blues trainee bounced back from a poor display against Barnsley last week with a solid display in goal against Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Match Facts & Stats

A cracking FA Cup tie in 1995 went the Sky Blues' way with late goals from Dion Dublin and Peter Ndlovu winning the replay at the Hawthorns.

Next Fixtures:

Home games next Saturday for both teams, Hull City for the Baggies and Leicester City for the Sky Blues.

Good luck today fellas - If you beat the Baggies anything can happen and with either Manu or the Gunners out of the way there won't be many Premiership clubs left to draw... Pompey v Coventry in the final... would you settle for that ?
