The Sky Blues face a resurgent Owls outfit at the weekend looking to lift some of the gloom that has enveloped the Ricoh in recent weeks.
Last week's performance against Derby was more reminiscent of last season's home displays and Micky Adams will be hoping for more of the same plus a good result come the final whistle.
City skipper Robert Page: 'Saturday was probably one of the best performances we have given all season and we came away with nothing.
'But that's football for you and even though we are bitterly disappointed with the result, if we can perform like that week in, week out we are going to win more than we lose, so that's the positive we have got to take out of the game.'
Fellow centre-half Elliott Ward told the club website: 'We've played well for most of the season and we've deserved more than we have got so on Saturday, if there's a battle, we'll be looking to out-battle them, out-pass them and hopefully score a few goals too.
'I'm expecting a tough game because they have won their last three matches and are scoring goals, but we must shoot them down and get the home win.'
Owls midfielder Kenny Lunt told his club's website: 'Brian Laws has put in his little ideas which have been good and we'll keep improving.
'It's nice to get a run in the team and, most importantly, results have improved.'
City want to sign Ipswich winger Darren Currie on loan but any deal will not go through until next week meaning an unchanged side could be sent out.
Needs to show that he can provide the creative spark from midfield that City need.
A number of Wednesday's fringe players staked their claims for a start in the midweek reserve team game against Bradford which the Owls won 5-0.
Has been in fine form in recent weeks and forms a dangerous partnership with Deon Burton up front.
A Dennis Wise inspired Coventry City side won 2-1 at the Ricoh last time the two sides met.
City travel to QPR next weekend while Wednesday entertain league leaders Cardiff.
