Ipswich Town vs. Coventry City

Portman Road

Three in a row?

Both Coventry City and Ipswich Town have the chance to make it three league wins in a row in Suffolk on Tuesday night.

The home side won at QPR before beating Southampton at the weekend while City were winners away to Hull and convincingly beat Norwich City on Saturday.

Vital Quotes:

Ipswich boss Jim Magilton after the win over Southampton: 'I was pleased with the way we played with a very new side.

'We are building and going in the right direction. We have a blend of youth and experience and play attacking football.'

New City striker Leon McKenzie told the official website: 'I scored at Ipswich on my debut for Norwich so a repeat of that would be nice if I'm selected to start but even if I don't start then I'll give it 110% if I get to come on.'



Ipswich Town Team News:

Fabian Wilnis is back in the Ipswich squad after a thigh injury ruled him out of Saturday's win over Southampton.

Sylvain Legwinski may make his first start since joining from Fulham on a free transfer.

Player to watch: Jon Macken

Out of favour at Crystal Palace, the former 5m man will be looking to score enough goals during his loan spell at Portman Road to earn a permanent Ipswich deal.

Coventry City Team News:

McKenzie is available to make his Sky Blues debut although boss Micky Adams may stick with Kevin Kyle and Stern John after they linked up well on Saturday.

David McNamee and Jay Tabb are back in training after injuries.

Player to watch: Andy Whing

Did well on Saturday although his distribution was poor at times, Whing knows that boss Micky Adams probably sees David McNamee as his first-choice right-back and that the Scot is approaching full fitness.

Match Facts & Stats

City recovered well last season from going two goals down at Portman Road to earn a point, Gary McSheffrey and loanee Lilian Nalis getting the goals.

Next Fixtures:

Leeds at home on Saturday for the Sky Blues, Ipswich travel to Birmingham.
