Yet another 'new era' begins for Coventry City as caretaker manager Adrian Heath takes his side to Devon for a tough game against Plymouth Argyle.

Saturday's results mean the Sky Blues are now only five points above the relegation zone and a draw at least would be very welcome.

Vital Quotes:

Robert Page on Adrian Heath: 'He's obviously been involved with the club now for a few years and he was involved under Micky,' he told the club's official website.

'He was always hands on with the training sessions and things from that point of view are not going to change so he's got the players' respect straight away.

'If we can get a couple of positive results, then surely that's going to hold him in good stead for the job.'

Plymouth Argyle Team News:

Krzystian Timar should have recovered from the throat infection that ruled him out at Norwich while new striker Rory Fallon is set to be in the squad after making a 300,000 move from Swansea City.

He said: 'I have still got a lot to learn, and I will never stop learning until I finish. I just want to get better.

'There is no ego with me. I will work my hardest and that's the way I will always be.'

Player to watch: Akos Buzsaky

The Hungarian playmaker has looked back to his best in recent weeks with a superb display and two goals helping Plymouth to an excellent win at Norwich City last weekend.

Coventry City Team News:

Michael Mifsud should come into contention after being ineligible to play against Bristol City last week.

Elliott Ward, David McNamee, Colin Cameron and Andy Marshall are all still out.

Player to watch: Robert Page

Completely out of form in recent weeks (along with most of his teammates), City need the big defender to be playing well if the flow of goals is to be stopped.

Match Facts & Stats

Plymouth were 3-1 winners in last season's game at Home Park, with Vincent Pericard scoring a hat-trick.

The Sky Blues take on Luton Town a week on Tuesday.

Obviously hoping for a win, but if not we need to make sure that we don't all start jumping up and down for a new manager asap. A knee jerk appointment won't work - we have history in that department!

Dead right we need to take time but it is a balancing act we don't want to jump in but we don't want to leave it to late for the new man to get us going

Plymouth unbeaten at Home Park this year so losing 3-2 was not that bad a result, new manager new players needed and quick?

I always try and remain positive and all in all the general performance/ result was probably better than I'd thought. I am, however, at a complete loss as to what Stephen Hughes is bringing to the team. He had an opportunity to bounce back after his spat with Adams, but instead delivered another disinteresed display of sub mediocrirty! We had our defensive issues (their first goal was a good strike, brought about by some comical defending), but until the midfield is sorted, teams will continue to walk straight through us!
