Williams on Coventry

18 March 2016

LUKE Williams is anticipating a high-intensity footballing contest tomorrow afternoon when Town take on Coventry City in League 1.

Speaking before Saturday's clash at the Ricoh Arena, the Head Coach added that the Sky Blues would be expecting to take all three points from the contest despite a sequence of four defeats in their last five outings.

The Town boss started by providing an update on the squad available for selection tomorrow afternoon. "We’re keeping an eye on Raphael (Rossi-Branco)," he said. "One way or another we're not sure if he's going to be able to start the game. Other than that we’re pretty good. Drissa (Traore) has been a bit under the weather but it's not an injury - we’re just keeping an eye on him hydration-wise and things like that. Yaser (Kasim) is still a few weeks away. He’s very much par for the course with this type of injury. He's doing everything correctly but still a few weeks before we can more accurately pinpoint a date (for his return)."

"(I'm expecting) more of a game with the football (at Coventry) - both teams tussling for the ball but still with a lot of intensity similar to the Millwall game because both teams are in a moment where they’re pushing hard for something spectacular from the end of the season so you have be very aggressive in these final games.

"There's a very good side there and they're not going to be feeling sorry for themselves. They're not going to be starting the game expecting to lose - they’ll be expecting to win. We will, of course, try to force them to feel negative and down about it by our performance."
