The Sky Blues go into Saturday's home game against Norwich in a much improved frame of mind following the 1-0 win at Hull a fortnight ago and will be looking to remain unbeaten at the Ricoh following a win over Sunderland and a draw with Leicester.
Norwich are also in form, having put five past Barnsley in their last outing.
Norwich winger Lee Croft: "We could probably have done without the international break and gone straight into the Coventry game on the back of beating Barnsley.
"We've had some hard training sessions for the lads who didn't go away, but everyone is feeling fresh and looking to carry on our early season form."
Sky Blues skipper Stephen Hughes: 'We've had a bit of a break. We had a few days off at the weekend and now we've got a week to prepare for the Norwich game and we're all looking forward to it.
'It would have been a difficult couple of weeks if we had lost at Hull because you want to win every game. Luckily enough we won the game, it was scrappy but we got all three points.
'I think Norwich will be up there come the end of the season, they have started well and we are under no illusion as to how hard it will be for us.'
Leon McKenzie cannot play against his former club while fellow new signing Kevin Kyle is doubtful.
'Kevin has a slight thigh strain and is 50-50 for the weekend,' said manager Micky Adams.
Turned the game at Hull when coming on as a substitute and may get a start in this one.
Robert Earnshaw suffered a wrist injury while playing for Wales against Brazil in midweek.
'The injury is being assessed, hopefully it will be nothing major and he will feature on Saturday,' said Canaries boss Nigel Worthington.
'There's nothing broken and it's just a bit sore.'
Norwich have moved towards a 4-5-1 (or 4-3-3) system this season with Huckerby and Lee Croft out wide and both players are in fine form and among the top five performers in the Championship according to the Actim Index figures.
Last season's game at the Ricoh (switched from the opening day as the stadium was still being finished) ended 2-2, the Sky Blues going two goals up inside 10 minutes before being pegged back.
Calum Davenport was on the mark for the visitors while on loan from Spurs.
Coventry travel to Portman Road in midweek to face Ipswich while Norwich are also away, at Southend United.
