The 'win one lose one' Sky Blues are back in the comforting surroundings of the Ricoh Arena on Saturday after another disappointing away defeat at Crystal Palace last week.
Plymouth in contrast have been doing well on the road this season and had been having trouble winning at their own ground until last week's 3-1 triumph over Norwich City.
Elliott Ward, up against the club where he impressed on loan last season, told the Sky Blues website: 'They have got good players and they are scoring more goals.
'They have got good players throughout the team with Chadwick, Blake, Barry Hayles and Norris out on the right is a good player. They get goals from all areas.
'They are solid too so I think they are a good outfit and it will be a tough game.'
Plymouth's Hungarian star Akos Buzsaky: 'I am really looking forward to playing Coventry on Saturday because they are another good team, like Norwich, and they have a lovely stadium.
'We will go there looking to build on our win over Norwich.'
David McNamee is suspended after being sent off against Crystal Palace, meaning Andy Whing will step in.
Assistant manager Adrian Heath told the club website: 'David has got to learn from that and Whingy will get his chance now and if he plays exceptionally well then David might have to wait for his chance to get back in.'
Will Micky Adams bring back the Trinidad & Tobago striker after he was relegated to the sub's bench last week?
Ian Hollloway has doubts about his skipper Paul Wotton, telling the Plymouth website: 'He has strained a muscle and probably won't play at the weekend.'
Strikers Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Barry Hayles have missed training this week with injuries.
The Coventry-born goalkeeper knows that last season's number one Romain Larrieu is on his way back from injury and looking to regain his place.
Last season's corresponding game was something of a turning point for the Sky Blues. After going a goal behind they struck three times in thirteen minutes to win the game, Don Hutchison's goal being the pick of the bunch.
Southend away for the Sky Blues on Friday 13th October, Plymouth are at home to Derby two days later.
