Bristol City Preview

The first game of what Coventry City will hope to be a prosperous 2008 takes place at Ashton Gate on Tuesday.

Vital Quotes: Iain Dowie

After the win over Ipswich: 'That is probably the worst we have played this season, but we still won.

'We were edgy and nervous and we didn't get our passing game going, but there was a lot of resilience and Dele Adebola has got himself a goal.

'It was case of getting it done, rather than it being pretty, but I think we deserved the rub of the green.'

Bristol City Team News:

Lee Trundle performed well as a sub at Burnley and could start up front.

Player to watch: Tamas Vasko

'I watched a video of him playing and he beat up a centre forward for 90 minutes,' said Gary Johnson of his centre-half after the win at Burnley.

'He has good feet, he's a big lad and we invited him across. He has been waiting for his opportunity. Tamas is decent in the opponents' box and he took his chance well.

'He has waited for his place and has been sharp in the reserves. He proved that we needed to be a bit more solid.'

Coventry City Team News:

Iain Dowie looked to be down the bare bones against Ipswich but coaxed a battling performance from his side.

Player to watch: Kevin Thornton

Could start after an impressive subs appearance against Ipswich.
