BIG MATCH PREVIEW: Coventry City V Swindon Town

Your Essential Guide To Saturday's Game

19 January 2018

Swindon Town are back in Sky Bet League Two action on Saturday when they take on Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena (3pm Kick-Off).

The Reds are currently on a three-game winning streak and they will be looking to make it four victories in a row tomorrow. 

Coventry are currently just one spot above Town in the table and they will be looking to bounce back after losing to Exeter last time out.

LAST TIME WE MET:

A Luke Norris wonder goal wasn't enough for Swindon to avoid defeat in September 2017 with efforts from Michael Doyle and Duckens Nazon sealing the three points for City.

ONE TO WATCH:

Marc McNulty has scored nine goals in League Two so far this season and, although he's not been as consistent as he would have liked this term, his eye for goal will make him a tricky customer to deal with for Town tomorrow. 

TOP SCORERS: 

COVENTRY CITY - Marc McNulty (9)

SWINDON TOWN - Luke Norris (12)

TEAM NEWS: 

COVENTRY CITY could welcome Peter Vincenti back into the fold after the midfielder returned to training following a spell out with a knee injury.

However, they will be without Liam Kelly, Jodi Jones and Tony Andreu who all remain on the treatment table. 

SWINDON TOWN could hand a debut to new striker Marc Richards, who joined on a free transfer from Northampton at the start of the week.

Chris Hussey and Timi Elsnik are both nearing a return to training while Amine Linganzi is expected to be out for a few weeks. 

A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS:

Mark Robins, Coventry City Manager: "It is a big game and we are looking forward to it.

"They are a good team and they have some real good players. They are on form at the moment and their away form is better than anybody in the league. 

"We want to play in an attacking sense and cause them real problems. We did not do enough last time out and we want to try and put that right this time out. 

"Swindon have brought in a few players and have spent well over January. There may be about eight or nine million pounds worth of players in that side. 

"They hold it up well and stretch the play well and Keshi Anderson is a massive threat for them."

Dave Flitcroft, Swindon Town Manager:  "The league is churning out results everywhere - Chesterfield beat Luton - there's no givens in this league and you get tested differently almost every game.

"It is how players turn up on the day and stick to the task at hand.

"We're on a real good run and there's a feel-good factor on the training ground.

"There's a belief and there's been a lift after adding Ollie Banks, adding Marc Richards and adding Keshi Anderson on a permanent.

"There's been a tempo to training and an improvement to training and the rest of players are certainly enjoying the fact that we are bringing in competition."
