Barnsley Preview

After slightly unluck defeats in their last two league games, Coventry City need three points against Barnsley to avoid slipping further towards the bottom three.

Vital Quotes: Iain Dowie

'We make no bones about it, we are in a perilous position and we must address it, but we must do that in a positive fashion and if there are any bricks and bats to be thrown, then do it at me and not the team.'

Coventry City Team News:

Daniel Fox is set for his home debut and could be joined by fellow new signing Scott Dann.

Player to watch: Leon Best

Likely to start with Dele Adebola having departed for Bristol City, Kevin Kyle also gone and Leon McKenzie injured.

Barnsley Team News:

New signings Anderson de Silva and Lewin Nyatanga come into contention. Goalkeeper Heinz Muller is injured.

Player to watch: Tony Warner

Signed on loan from Fulham, Warner has big shoes to fill as Muller has been Barnsley's star man this season.

Match Facts & Stats

The Iain Dowie effect was seen at its peak when Barnsley last came to the Ricoh Arena in March 2007 with the Sky Blues running out 4-1 winners.

Ref Watch:

Mike Russell of Herts takes charge.

Next Fixtures:

Preston away for the Sky Blues, West Brom at home for the Tykes.
