West Ham preview

West Ham are the visitors to the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday for what promises to be an exciting cup-tie with a decent atmosphere generated by the near 5,000-strong travelling fans and hopefully the home crowd too.

Vital Quotes:

Tim Flowers on reports Iain Dowie is set to quit: 'No! No chance - no chance.

'That's the truth - he'll be here on Tuesday.'

Coventry City Team News:

No new injury worries for City. Iain Dowie must have been pleased with his side's shape at the back on Saturday meaning any changes may come further forward.

Player to watch: Dele Adebola

Once again made an impact as a substitute on Saturday and will surely be given the nod to start on Tuesday night.

West Ham United Team News:

Craig Bellamy was subbed at half-time against Portsmouth on Saturday due to an abdominal strain and will not be able to face his former club.

Player to watch: Mark Noble

The home-grown midfielder is a big favourite at Upton Park and should be set for a feisty battle with Michael Doyle.

Match Facts & Stats

The last League Cup meeting between the two sides was in the semi-finals in 1981, West Ham winning a dramatic tie 4-3 on aggregate.

Ref Watch:

Premiership opposition and a Premiership referee. Rob Styles takes charge.

Next Fixtures:

Stoke City away for the Sky Blues, Bolton at home on Sunday for the Hammers.

How important is this game to your boys? Good luck (after Tuesday night)

It's important financially given the current state of the club. A good crowd and the Sky money could help pay the wages for another month!
