The Coventry City squad braved the elements this morning in preparation for tomorrow's trip to Carlisle United.

The Sky Blues make the longest trip of the season to Brunton Park and the squad prepared for the crucial away match in extremely wet conditions.

Joe Murphy, who is a doubt for tomorrow's match, trained with the side and looked in fine form, despite having missed most of the week's training due to injury.

City boss Steven Pressley said, ahead of the match against the Cumbrians: "It will be a tough game as they will be looking to get their first win on the board in the league this season.

"They may have lost their two league games so far but they showed they will be difficult to face when they played Blackburn in the League Cup last week, and progressed into the next round.

"I expect the same levels as I saw last week in the win against Bristol City. It is a long trip and we will be travelling up on the day but I don't expect that to have any effect on the performance levels.

"We have been brilliantly backed on our two away trips so far this season and I am sure our fans will travel well again, and get behind the team. With their support and a good performance, I am we can get the right result."
