PREVIEW: Coventry (a)

22 October 2013

All the news ahead of our trip up to Sixfields this evening

FORM: The Sky Blues are familiar opponents this season having already faced the O's twice in both the Capital One Cup and the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. The O's won on both those occasions though not without drama as a late Kevin Lisbie winner sealed victory on the first occasion after Coventry had been reduced to ten-men and missed a penalty before only a penalty shoot-out could separate the sides in the JPT.

Having started the season with a ten points deduction, Steven Pressley's side have been in impressive form amassing 21 points from their first 12 games and are the division's second leading scorers behind the O's having notched 27 times in the process. 

Pressley's men will be in confident mood after snatching an excellent draw at Molineux on Saturday in a 1-1 draw having come from behind. 

TEAM: Coventry will again be without Cyrus Christie and young defender Aaron Phillips could make his first start after coming off the bench to score a dramatic equaliser against Wolves on Saturday.

Orient are expected to name a similar squad to the one that won at Tranmere with new loan signing Frankie Sutherland linking up with the side since joining from QPR yesterday. 

THE BETTING: Football League sponsors Sky Bet make Coventry 11/8 and Orient 19/10 with a draw at 12/5. Mathieu Baudry has been getting closer to his first goal of the season, get him at 25/1 for the first goal.  Get stuck in and have a punt here
