Match Preview: Coventry City v Rovers

5 April 2019

Rovers travel to the West Midlands to take on Coventry City in SkyBet League One on Sunday afternoon.

Rovers suffered back to back league defeats for the first time under Graham Coughlan following Saturday's loss at home to Luton Town; a mark of how far the team has come since the 4-0 defeat at home to Doncaster Rovers which left them two points from rock bottom and four points adrift from safety.

Four months later and Coughlan's men are three points above the drop in 16th and with just six games to go, losing just once in their last 10 games on the road heading into Sunday's game.

Jonson Clarke-Harris continued his scintillating form in front of goal despite defeat last weekend, notching his ninth goal in as many league games and will be eager to add to that, as he returns to the Ricoh Arena along with Abu Ogogo for the first time since their move from the Sky Blues late in January. 

Manager's View: The Gaffer noted on the squad's confidence heading into this one in his pre-match interview.


Preview: Graham Coughlan on Coventry City

Abs' View: Abu returns to his former club this weekend and is looking forward to coming up against some familiar faces. 

Opposition: Sunday's opponents aren't doing too badly at present, winning two and drawing one of their last five. Their latest outing was a respectable 2-2 draw away at promotion-chasing Barnsley, a result which has left them in 9th and an outside chance of a play-off finish; although they have six points to make up if they are to catch Doncaster Rovers in 6th. Rovers can take encouragement from the fact the Sky Blues have lost two of their last three games at the Ricoh Arena.
