"Sheffield United are 12th but when they start winning they'll be hard to stop." Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

The Sky Blues boss is wary of Sheffield United's threat despite their run of form...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray believes Sheffield United will prove a tough test despite the club's recent form.

The Blades head into the game off the back of a 1-0 victory over Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup, but haven't won a league game since the start of October.



Despite the winless run in League One, Mowbray thinks that once they build momentum and get back on the winning trail, they will be very hard to stop.

He said: "Sheffield United are 12th, but I’m sure they - and Nigel Adkins - would have thought they would have been a little closer than they are.

"But it's a long season, often the bigger teams find momentum and when they do they can be very hard to stop when the supporters get behind them.

"They have the quality and depth in their squad and they start winning and undoubtedly when it comes they'll be difficult to stop.

"Maybe they need to find that bit of belief but they'll find the winning formula soon.

"Nigel has experimented with a number of formations in recent weeks, three in midfield, a diamond, a 4-4-2, so we're just looking after ourselves, know how we're going to play and see how the game unfolds."
