PREVIEW: Barnet v Coventry City - The Sky Blues look to make it four on the bounce at the Hive

City target early kick-off win in SkyBet League Two...

5 October 2017

Venue: The Hive Stadium

Competition: SkyBet League Two

Date: Saturday 7th October, 2017

Kick-off: 12.30pm

The Sky Blues head to Barnet's Hive Stadium in SkyBet League Two for the day's early kick off as they look to make it four league wins on the bounce. 

Should they leave with all three points, Mark Robins' side will go top of the league for the first time since the 2-0 victory over Grimsby Town, even if it is just for a few hours.

Coventry will be without top scorer Duckens Nazon for this one. The forward, on loan from Wolves, is away on International duty with Haiti.

The Bees are 18th in the standings and have picked up just one point out of a possible 15 over the last five games.

Barnet boss, Rossi Eames took charge in May after impressing as a caretaker but the 32-year-old has only won four of his first 15 games.

The Opponents

Shaquile Coulthirst will be the main attacking threat for the home side. The Tottenham Academy graduate has scored six goals already this season including his first EFL hat-trick in a 4-1 win away at Swindon.

Alongside him upfront is likely to be experienced Jamaican international Jamal Campbell-Ryce. The 34-year-old has made 500 Football League appearances over the course of his career for Charlton, Sheffield United and Barnsley among many. 

Across the defence for the Bees is likely to be the athletic Portuguese centre-back Ricardo Santos and experienced head Michael Nelson. Santos made 63 appearances for Peterbrough before making the move to the Hive and has become a key figure in Eames' back-line.

City Away this Season.

W Grimsby 0-2.

L Yeovil 2-0.

D Chesterfield 0-0.

L Cambridge 2-1.

W Swindon 1-2.

D Walsall 2-2 (Coventry win on Penalties).

REPORT: Barnet 0-0 Coventry - Sky Blues held to goalless draw by Barnet

Mark Robins' side unlucky to leave with just a point at the Hive...

7 October 2017

The Sky Blues have been held to a goalless draw at the Hive in SkyBet League Two.

Max Biamou and Marc McNulty came closest for the visitors but Mark Robbins' side failed to find the breakthrough.

Jordan Ponticelli was handed his league debut for City on an afternoon lacking excitment in North London.

Biamou has been a constant in the City line-up ever since breaking into the side last month and came closest to opening the scoring in this one. Liam Kelly's long and floated free-kick met nicely with Biamou's head but the Frenchman's header sailed wide.

The Bees lead with former Shrewsbury forward Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro in attack, and the pacey forward did not waste time in causing the Sky Blues problems. If it wasn't for a well time interception from Lia Kelly, his gently lofted lob would have almost certainly let Andre Blackman in one-on-one with Lee Burge.

It may have taken half an hour, but Coventry soon began to grow into the game. Jodi Jones flicked the ball long up the line for to chase down himself before picking out Devon Kelly-Evans charging through the centre. Kelly-Evans chopped his marker before forcing a strong block from Barnet defender Charlie Clough. 

Jones again would be the creator for City's next chance. The teenager skipped a number of challenges before going for the spectacular with the outside of his left foot, but on this ocassion it sailed wide. 

After the break, Mark Robins' side were attacking a stand full with a 1,390-strong Sky Blue Army, and were getting closer and closer to opening the scoring.

First McNulty found away to get goalside of Bees' left back David Tutonda before playing the ball across the area for both Kelly-Evans and Michael Doyle to have a stab at, but neither could make a true connection.

Next it was McNulty's turn to recieve the ball in the area, but the former Sheffield United man was crowded out and could not quite get his shot away.

With ten to go, Robins added Jordan Shipley and Jordan Ponticelli to the mix as City looked to grab a late winner. Biamou again came close when he skipped a challenge and fired a low effort acrosss goal and wide of the far post.

Liam Kelly was almot forced off with an injury early on in the second half, his thunderous volley stung the palms of Barnet 'keeper Craig Ross and started a flurry of Sky Blue chances as Biamou could only watch two of his efforts at goal scrambled away from the goal-line.
