After another week of off-field drama ended with some encouraging news about the future of the club, Coventry City will look to end a run of just one point from the last three games when they host the Blades on Saturday.

Vital Quotes: Bryan Robson

'We've now beaten three of the most fancied teams in this division (after winning at Charlton on Tuesday to add to victories against Wolves and West Brom) and hopefully that will give the lads even more belief in what they are capable of.'

Coventry City Team News:

Michael Mifsud is still suspended while Jay Tabb picked up an ankle injury against Scunthorpe.

Player to watch: David McNamee

A class act on Tuesday night, the right-back is in his best spell of form since joining the Sky Blues.

Sheffield United Team News:

Paddy Kenny is set to deputise for Ian Bennett once again.

'Ian damaged his wrist against Plymouth but we've had a look at it and there doesn't appear to be any type of break,' said Robson after the Charlton game.

'But Paddy (Kenny) came back in and did really well when he had to.'

Lee Hendrie made a reserve-team comeback in midweek and could feature.

Player to watch: James Beattie

The 4m signing from Everton is in hot form meaning the Sky Blues' central defenders will have to break their habit of switching off at crucial moments.
