Coventry City vs. Blackpool

Ricoh Arena

Blackpool preview

Coventry City look to end a run of four league games without a win against Championship newcomers Blackpool on Tuesday night.

The Seasiders have made an excellent start to life in a higher division and earned plenty of praise for their display at Watford on Saturday.

Vital Quotes:

Visiting boss Simon Grayson: 'We were down to 16 fit players on Saturday and I would've thought the four or five that we've got out at the moment will still be out tomorrow.'

Coventry City Team News:

No new injury worries for the Sky Blues but Iain Dowie may make changes after saying his players had 'nothing left in the tank' following their exertions against Manchester United and Charlton.

Player to watch: Gary Borrowdale

Obviously highly-rated by Iain Dowie but there are some murmurings amongst Sky Blues' fans, alarmed at the number of chances the opposition seem to create on the right-hand side.

Blackpool Team News:

Ben Burgess, Scott Vernon and Stephen Crainey as well as long-term absentees Ian Evatt and Adrian Forbes are all out.

Player to watch: Keigan Parker

The tricky Scot has already had a hand in a number of Blackpool's goals this season and with his contract up next summer is being closely watched.

Match Facts & Stats

1997 saw the last meeting between the sides, Coventry winning the second-leg of a League Cup tie 3-1 at Highfield Road to go through 3-2
on aggregate.

Ref Watch:

Mike Thorpe of Suffolk takes charge.

Next Fixtures:

Wolves away for the Sky Blues, Plymouth at home for the Seasiders.
