WBA Preview

Two in-form sides meet at the Ricoh on Monday night as promotion favourites West Brom are the visitors.

Vital Quotes: Iain Dowie

'If we win the game we go above them, so that's a carrot for us and all if a sudden the glass is half full rather than half empty.

'They are a good side and I know we are going to have to be on out mettle against a very good side with pace, quality, skill and people who can hurt you at key moments.'

Coventry City Team News:

Robbie Simpson is out with a ruptured hamstring while David McNamee is doubtful.

Leon McKenzie is in contention after a knee injury.

Player to watch: Marcus Hall

West Bromwich Albion Team News:
