Coventry City vs. Norwich City

Ricoh Arena

08 March


Norwich Preview

Another big game for the Sky Blues as they look to produce a similar display to Wednesday's against QPR but this time with a finishing touch.

Norwich still have outside hopes of making the play-offs, something that would have seemed extremely implausible when Glenn Roeder gained his first win as Canaries boss against City earlier in the season.

Vital Quotes: Chris Coleman

'You want your strikers to score and we had some chances the other night,' Coleman told the Coventry Telegraph after seeing his side draw a blank against QPR.

'But they kept getting in there and that's the only way to correct what's going wrong.'

Coventry City Team News:

Jay Tabb has a knock so Julian Gray could get the chance to improve on a poor display against Scunthorpe and a completely innocuous stint as a sub against QPR.

Player to watch: Michael Mifsud

Looked much more of a threat against QPR than in recent weeks.

'He needs a little bit more composure in the final third but you often find that with quick players who generally play at one speed,' said boss Coleman.

Norwich City Team News:

Darren Huckerby is unlikely to feature but Darel Russell returns after suspension to the heart of the midfield.

Player to watch: Jamie Cureton

Pushing for a start after netting as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at Watford on Tuesday night.

Match Facts & Stats

The Sky Blues have a perfectly balanced home record of six wins, six draws and six defeats.

The Canaries have lost half of their eighteen league away games but only of the last eight.

Ref Watch:

Paul Taylor of Herts takes charge.

Next Fixtures:

Sheffield United away for the Sky Blues, Stoke at home for the Canaries.
