With just two games to go until the start of the new Sky Bet League 2 season Justin Edinburgh is looking to "work through the gears" following Saturday's 1-0 win over FC Carl Zeiss Jena. The day provided entertainment on and off the field with a flurry of chances falling to County, but Darren Jones found himself unmarked at the far post to head home and give County a well deserved win. Danny Crow and Adam Chapman may be back in contention for the game against Coventry, but Max Porter and Jamie Stephens are still out as they receive treatment for their injuries.


This will be the fourth pre-season friendly for The Sky Blues following a win, loss and a draw during their pre-season tour of Italy. Coventry started their pre-season tour with a 2-0 win over AS Roma with Sky Blues striker Shaun Miller and new signing Danny Pugh providing the goals. Chievo Verona were next up on the second game of the tour, but three first half goals for the Italian outfit sealed a 3-0 win. The final game of the Italian tour was against Greek team AEL Kalloni which ended in a 0-0 draw for the Sky Blues, however that doesn't tell the story. Four red cards in the first half hour meant this heated friendly started with a bang, although the red cards dampened the encounter. Coventry head to South East Wales following a good start to preparations for the new season.

Last time out: Allsop (Burge 60), Phillips, Webster (Fleck 60), Clarke (Seaborne 46), Pugh (sent off 15, replaced by Haynes, sub for Willis 60), Lawton (C Thomas 46), Finch, Daniels (sent off 29), O'Brien (Swanson 46), Tudgay (Miller 60), Maddison
