Coventry City vs. Southampton

Ricoh Arena

15 December

Southampton Preview

In case you forgot, there is a game at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday and
Coventry City players and fans can go into it with a weight lifted off
their shoulders following Friday's takeover.

It may not be a bright new dawn but surely things cannot get any worse
than they have been off-the-field this season?

Vital Quotes:

'Our sole aim is to get back into the Premier League and this will
hopefully help us to achieve that,' Tim Flowers told the club website.

'Everyone in this division wants to get into the Premier League. This
division is a proper dogfight because the teams are pretty much of the
same standard.

'There are a few teams that stand out and that is all we are up against.

'But hopefully now we can push ahead with some plans.'

Coventry City Team News:

Michael Mifsud is back in contention after being injured for last week's
abandoned trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

Player to watch: Leon McKenzie

The striker is chasing his 100th career goal.

Southampton Team News:

Darren Powell and Wayne Thomas could return after injury to boost George
Burley's defensive options.

Player to watch: Stern John

The returning striker netted a hat-trick against Hull last weekend.

Match Facts & Stats

Last season's corresponding fixture was Iain Dowie's first in charge of the Sky Blues and goals from Adebola and Kyle gave them a 2-1 win.
