Coventry City aim to shrug off their early-season blues with a win against Hull City at the weekend.

Micky Adams read the riot act to his players after their League Cup reverse at Hereford and will be looking for a reaction.

New Hull manager Phil Parkinson has had a difficult start to his reign and will be looking to go into the international break with a morale boosting win.

Vital Quotes:

Micky Adams after defeat at Edgar Street: "At the moment our confidence is at a low ebb, for whatever reason, and we have got to address that. We've got to keep going.

'They don't need me to go in there and slaughter them; they don't need the supporters to tell them how poor they were.

'They know. It's a collective thing and I'll take whatever comes my way - I'm sure I'll get bucketsful, but I've got to be big, stick my chest out and make sure we prepare right for Hull City on Saturday.'

New Hull City signing David Livermore: 'Coventry are another good side. They are a big club and have invested some money and if they get it right they could put in a challenge so it will be another tough game for us.

'We were looking to get off to a better start but there are still plenty of games to go."

Hull City Team News:

Ben Burgess is looking to keep his place after scoring in midweek, his first goal for almost a year.

He said: 'I just want to play games.

'I need to play four or five matches in a row to get my career back on track and I need to be starting games.

'I think I did all right against Tranmere. Even without my goal I think I played okay and hopefully the gaffer has taken that on board, but that is his decision not mine.'

Player to watch: Darryl Duffy

The former Falkirk striker scored his first goal of the season against Tranmere in midweek and will be looking to add to his tally on Saturday.

Coventry City Team News:

Adams is looking to sign Kevin Kyle in time to play at the weekend and may ring the changes after the League Cup exit.

Player to watch: Chris Birchall

Yet to show the form that persuaded Micky Adams to pay 300,000 for him on the eve of the season, the Trinidad & Tobago man needs to improve to keep his place in the side.

Match Facts & Stats

City`s first ever visit to the KC Stadium ended in a 2-1 win in January, thanks in no small part to Dennis Wise`s spectacular overhead kick.
