Ipswich preview

Another appearance in the Setanta spoiler on Sky for Coventry as they travel to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Iain Dowie's side will be in better spirits after their late equaliser at Crystal Palace.

Ipswich return home on the back of away defeats at Watford and West Brom.

Vital Quotes:

Iain Dowie: "It will be a difficult game, but we are still unbeaten away from home.

"If we can turn our good performances into goals early on then that might give us a platform to win more games.'

Ipswich Town Team News:

Fabian Wilnis is available after serving a three-match ban and manager Jim Magilton is considering a change in goal where Neil Alexander's place is under threat.

Player to watch: Gary Roberts

The left-sided midfielder is set to return, with boss Jim Magilton telling the EADT: "He was really buzzing when he first arrived here last season but has lost a bit of self-confidence and the zip to go beyond opponents.

"He will be in my mind to play tomorrow and he is one of the fittest players we have at the club."

Coventry City Team News:

David McNamee may make a surprise return for the Sky Blues.

Colin Hawkins was injured in the midweek reserve clash at Bradford and misses out.

Player to watch: Ellery Cairo

Yet to show his best form since signing in the summer, the former Hertha Berlin man told the Telegraph: 'I feel my very best is still to come and I still need a short period to reach that stage.'

Match Facts & Stats

Ipswich are unbeaten in the 10 meetings the clubs have had in the Championship.

Ref Watch:

Trevor Kettle will be on hand to ensure it doesn't all boil over.

Next Fixtures:

Hull City away next Saturday for Ipswich while the Sky Blues have a comfortable looking game at Old Trafford on Wednesday!
