Watford preview

League leaders Watford are the first of three visitors to the Ricoh Arena in a week that could prove crucial to Coventry City's on and off-field future.

Vital Quotes:

Hornets boss Adrian Boothroyd after Saturday's win over Hull City: 'If we keep doing what we doing we'll be up there.

'I don't envisage myself getting carried away but it's a good start.'

Iain Dowie told the club website after the reverse at Plymouth: 'We have to pick ourselves up because we have a very tough week ahead.'

Coventry City Team News:

Changes surely afoot for the Sky Blues after a tame 1-0 defeat at Plymouth on Saturday.

Player to watch: Julian Gray

Provides the width in the Sky Blues side and may have Kevin Kyle to aim for on Tuesday.

Watford Team News:

Lee Williamson remains suspended after his recent sending-off at Scunthorpe and John-Joe O'Toole should again deputise.

Player to watch: Marlon King

King and strike partner Darius Henderson will provide a tough test for the Sky Blues back-line, with Nathan Ellington waiting in the wings as well.

Match Facts & Stats

Coventry were 3-1 winners on Watford's only other visit to the Ricoh, Adebola, Flood and McSheffrey getting the goals just over two years ago.

Ref Watch:

Lee Probert of Wiltshire is set to take charge.
