After the first half of the season has left us fighting it out at the top end of the table, the arrival of Coventry at the City Ground will certainly be a stern test but the home crowd will certainly be expectant after witnessing 12 goals in the last three home game & 4 consecutive clean sheets in the last 4 home & away fixtures.
