Adrian Heath continues his spell in charge of the Sky Blues with a tough home fixture against Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Bluebirds have recovered well from a poor run of form by winning their last three, with Michael Chopra back to his best up front.

Vital Quotes:

Defender Roger Johnson told the official Cardiff City website: 'It's another big one. They aren't doing as well as they would like, so hopefully for us it's the right time to play them.

'We'll go there and try to keep our run going, although have no illusions of an easy match. We're preparing as we do every week and will aim to go there with all guns blazing.'

Coventry City Team News:

Goalkeeper Andy Marshall is recovering well from a knee operation.

'I had hoped to be fit for the game at Sunderland but it just came too soon for me,' said the 31-year-old.

'But if I get a full week of training in then I can start looking at the Cardiff game.'

Player to watch: Leon McKenzie

City's strikers are under pressure to perform after drawing another blank against Sunderland last weekend.

Cardiff City Team News:

Joe Ledley is set to return after sustaining a knee injury against Barnsley last week.

'It's too soon to play for Wales,' Ledley said earlier in the week. 'Obviously, I'm disappointed that I'll miss the game but it could have been a lot worse.

'At the time I thought I'd be out for some while but it looks like I will be fit for next Saturday at Coventry City.'

Player to watch: Michael Chopra

The former Newcastle United forward has rediscovered his touch in front of goal with five goals in Cardiff's last three games.

Oh Joy of Joy's! Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse. look who pops up as referee. Take a good book with you, there could be a few lengthy breaks in play as the 'Graham Poll - I'm in charge - Look at me! - show rolls into town! Let it snow!!
