The focus will be firmly on the visitor's dug-out when Coventry City play Leeds United on Saturday with a number of newspaper reports on Friday suggesting that manager Kevin Blackwell is one bad result away from the sack.
David O'Leary, Alan Curbishley and Dennis Wise are all in the frame to take over.
The Sky Blues are looking to maintain their unbeaten home record and bounce back from Tuesday night's disappointing defeat at Ipswich.
Under-fire Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell: 'They can keep on calling (for me to go).
'All I can do is do my job. I turned this club around from nothing.
'If you look at where we've come from, with no players, then I think I can turn this around, no problem.'
City defender Robert Page: 'Ipswich was disappointing because we set our standards with the win at Hull and Norwich at home.
'We know it's not good enough and have got things to improve on, and it is up to us to get it right for Saturday.'
Micky Adams may look to freshen things up after keeping an unchanged side at Ipswich on Tuesday with Don Hutchison, Dele Adebola and Leon McKenzie all vying for a start if he decides to rest Kevin Kyle and Stern John.
Jay Tabb and David McNamee also come into contention after a reserve team run-out.
Impressed as a substitute against Ipswich and should be in line for his full debut on Saturday.
Midfielder Shaun Derry is set to return to training but not until after this game while summer signing Kevin Nicholls could make his Leeds debut after recovering from a knee injury.
The presure is on Leeds' strikers to start scoring goals and for Healy to repeat his feats with Northern Ireland at club level.
Last season's game ended 1-1. Gary McSheffrey's first-half goal being cancelled out by a late Leeds penalty.
The Sky Blues travel to Crystal Palace next Saturday while Leeds are at home to Birmingham City.
