Plymouth come to the Ricoh.

The Ricoh plays host to Plymouth Hoe this weekend in a must win match for both Clubs. If City lose or draw it will place them firmly in the relegation mire and if the Hoe's lose it could see them drop out of the play off places.

Plymouth, or the Pilgrims as they are known is the most Southern and Western Club in England, their nearest big City is New York. Despite this they have a large away support known as the Green Army and 14 of the Green Army are expected to make the 3700 mile round trip to cheer on their heroes on Saturday.

Managed by Paul Sturrock former managers include former Leicester favourite Peter Shilton, who took them from the the second to the fourth division in three seasons, and Leicesters current manager Ian Holloway. Bad blood exists between the two clubs since Plymouth accused Holloway of poaching Plymouths best players. Since then Plymouth have gone from strength to strength and Leicester (who have never won the F.A. Cup) have sunk further and further down the league and are now even below the Sky Blues.

Plymouth fans, who's national pass time is ten pin bowling (it's the New York link) must be esctatic at the progress of the Club since the departure of Ian Holloway and are a lesson to all clubs as to what can be achieved on a small but sound budget.

Injury worries may play a part in this fixture as 7 of Plymouths first team are out due to medical reasons.

The Sky Blues have 14 players out due to the fact that they're f*%"n useless and 1 due to suspension.

New loan signing Zavon Hines may get a game as Leon Best is suspended for two games and with Mifsud finding his shooting boots mid week the Sky Blues will be looking for all three points.
