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

Burnley vs. Coventry City

Turf Moor

26 February

19:45

Burnley Preview

The first of two away games this week for the Sky Blues who will hopefully be full of confidence after Saturday's win over Leicester City.

Vital Quotes: Burnley boss Owen Coyle

'I was quite impressed with Coventry when we went to the Ricoh Arena.

'I thought they offered an awful lot to the game, and they've got a real attacking threat in Michael Mifsud and Julian Gray.

'They'll be obviously boosted by Saturday's result coming here.

'Equally I think they'll remember our performance at Coventry and know we're a good side. So we'll concentrate on what we can do.'

Burnley Team News:

Ade Akinbiyi and Andrew Cole are fit again (although Cole may be a doubt after being arrested on Monday morning and subsequently released on bail).

Player to watch: Andrew Cole

If he plays, the ex-England man will be looking to continue an impressive start to life at Turf Moor.

Coventry City Team News:

Stephen Hughes's injury is not as bad as feared but he misses out and Michael Doyle remains suspended.

Player to watch: Kevin Thornton

A real chance for the midfielder to shine and make himself a first team regular.

Match Facts & Stats

Michael Mifsud and Jay Tabb gave City a 2-1 win at Turf Moor in the final game of last season.

Ref Watch:

Tony Bates of Staffordshire takes charge.

Next Fixtures:

Watford at home for the Clarets, Scunthorpe away for the Sky Blues.
