Scunthorpe Preview

The Sky Blues look to bounce back from Saturday's disappointing defeat at Norwich with a win over Scunthorpe on Tuesday night.

The Iron themselves could do with the points after three straight reverses.

Vital Quotes: Iain Dowie

'It is very important we get a result and get back up in that top six area.'

Jack Cork (Scunthorpe defender): 'If we keep playing well, like we have in the last two home games, we'll definitely get results.'

Coventry City Team News:

Iain Dowie has options to change things around from Saturday with Leon McKenzie, Wayne Andrews, Ellery Cairo and Julian Gray all pushing for a start.

Player to watch: Wayne Andrews

Could get a start on Tuesday and with Michael Mifsud out and City lacking a cutting edge, has the chance to make an impact.

Scunthorpe United Team News:

An x-ray on Cliff Byrne's recent injury has shown a broken fibula which will keep him out until the new year.

Player to watch: Tomi Ameobi

The on-loan Leeds striker could start after coming on as a substitute against Hull City at the weekend.
