Match Previews


8 December 2017

Coventry City travel to the Globe Arena in the Sky Bet League 2 on Saturday, with Mark Robins’ side looking to go five games without defeat in all competitions. The Shrimps will be hoping to bounce back from their Emirates FA Cup second round exit at New Meadow last Saturday and move up the league table.

Jim Bentley’s side sit in 21st place in the table, 15 places and 13 points below the visitors and the boss says scoring more goals is key to climbing the table, “That’s (scoring goals) what wins football matches and we haven’t been good enough in that department.

“At the start of November we scored three against Hartlepool, two against Leicester and two against Wycombe, which is great. But then we only manage to score one in the next four games.”

Patrick Brough is a doubt after sustaining a knee injury at Shrewsbury last week, which saw the full-back substituted at half time. Sam Lavelle will serve his final day of his 2 match suspension for ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ against Carlisle United last month. Aaron McGowan may return to the starting line-up after returning from injury (hamstring) in last week’s FA Cup tie at New Meadow.

Coventry have chopped and changed since losing star man Jodi Jones to a cruciate knee injury last month. Duckens Nazon and Marc McNulty have linked up well in recent matches, both getting on the scoresheet in their impressive 3-0 victory at Kenilworth Road.
