Coventry City - Leicester City match preview.


It's that time of the year again when Coventry play host to our poorer relatives from the wrong end of the '69. Part 2 of the M69 Derby commences on Saturday with first blood to the Foxes.

In what surely must be Leicesters biggest game of the season, Leicester will swell the ranks at the Ricoh by 5'000, that's 60'000 fingers all told and more toes than you could shake a stick at, coming to marvel at how a stadium should be built.

After three losses on the bounce Leicester fluked a 4-0 victory at home to Norwich and will start the game full of confidence after their narrow win at home against the Sky Blues last month and will be attempting to win two on the trot for the first time this season.

Joe Mattock and Richard Stearman are doubtful after missing training but we haven't heard of them so it probably won't matter much anyway.

Coventry will be boosted by the return of Scott Dann and Daniel Fox after being cup tied last week against West Brom and Stephen Hughes is also back from injury. Michael Doyle starts his suspension after his oh so vicious challenge last week on Gera.

In his first game in charge, Chris Coleman is looking forward to the Leicester game and said. "Derby games are the best games and I loved them as a player."
He has asked the player for a "gutsy" performances saying."You want players who can do it in training and once they step over the white line they don't show fear and are prepared to make a mistake and go and get the ball again, and that's the type of players you want - gutsy, greedy players and team players, and I hope that's the sort of performance we get from them."
