Stoke Preview

Another week, another big game. The Sky Blues must start turning performances into points but have been strong at home.

Stoke have wobbled in recent weeks but boss Tony Pulis has plenty of options to shake things up a bit.

Vital Quotes: Chris Coleman

'I don't need to tell them the importance of this match
because they already know.

'Stoke are coming here looking to win to get them back into an automatic promotion spot, and for us to win and get three points would be a massive step in the right direction.'

Coventry City Team News:

Jay Tabb could make a welcome return after missing the game at Watford through injury.

Player to watch: Leon Best

Impressive on his return to the side last week and up against some powerful centre-halves on Saturday.

Stoke City Team News:

Liam Lawrence picked up a groin injury in Monday night's defeat by Crystal Palace and could miss out.

Player to watch: Ricardo Fuller

Stoke have chopped and changed strikers recently and the Jamaican may be recalled on Saturday.

Match Facts & Stats

Last season's game at the Ricoh was a forgettable 0-0 draw.

Ref Watch:

Uriah Rennie takes charge for this one.

Next Fixtures:

Big games for both sides next week. The Sky Blues travel to Colchester, Stoke host Bristol City.
