Hull City v Coventry City

Once again it's the annual trip to the arse end of the back of beyond for the travelling Sky Blue Army as Coventry City get set to take of the Hull Tigers, after defeating the Lions it's the turn of the Tigers to be tamed by the might of the Sky Blues, but I'd take a draw!

It will be a tough game for the Sky Blues at the K C Stadium against a team who have had steady form in the league. Sitting in 12th place Hull are 6 points off the play off places with two games in hand on most of the clubs around them and will be looking for a change of fortune after picking up only one point from their last nine. You need to go back to December 30th for their last win when they beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at the the K C Stadium.

Hull will be going into the game a lot fresher than the Sky Blues. While Coventry were disposing of Millwall in the F.A Cup Hull have been soaking up the sun in a training camp in Dubai, and with their recent game against Colchester United postponed due to Colchesters waterlogged pitch Hull have not kicked a ball in anger since losing 3-1 at home to the Baggies although they were set to play a behind-closed-doors game against CSKA Moscow while on the trip.

With Arjande Zeeuw returning from suspension and new signing Dan Fox available for selection Coventry will be hoping for better things from the defence after shipping 13 goals in their last 6 league games.

After the F.A. Cup break it's back to the day job and with City now sitting in 20th spot, only 5 points above the drop zone Dowie must surely be feeling the pressure.
