After making headline news on Wednesday night, Coventry City's players look to end a run of three league games without a win in an attractive-looking game at the Ricoh.

Charlton have made an excellent start to life back in the Championship and currently lie 2nd in the table.

Vital Quotes:

Iain Dowie: 'We had 11,000 fans (at Old Trafford) and hopefully this result has given them a bit of belief and it would be great to have that vocal support again when we are at home.'

Alan Pardew told the Charlton website: 'We're currently second in the league and I'd like to think we'll be there with 10 games gone.

'I think that's an important marker, and it coincides with the international break, so that's a good target for us to try and stay there in the next three games.'

Coventry City Team News:

Iain Dowie must decide whether to stick with the heroes of midweek or go back to the likes of Arjan De Zeeuw and Dele Adebola.

Player to watch: Michael Mifsud

Who else but the man of the moment? The 'mosquito` will surely start his first league of the season?

Charlton Athletic Team News:

Nicky Weaver, Chris Powell and Andy Reid among others will all return after being rested for the League Cup tie against Luton.

Player to watch: Andy Reid

The Republic of Ireland international is starting to show the form that persuaded Tottenham to pay big money for him in 2005.
