Coventry City take on Peterborough United tomorrow and ahead of the big game, we take a look at three players who have played for both sides.

Three of the standout players include an FA Cup winner, a Premier League regular and someone who was part of the squad this season...

GARY BREEN



The Irish defender Breen started his career at Charlton, but it was his performances for Peterborough that allowed him to catch the eye.

He spent two years with the Posh and his excellent defensive displays caught the eye of Birmingham City, who paid £250,000 to get him to the Midlands in 1996.

After another solid 12 months, the Sky Blues, then in the Premier League, paid £2.5m for Breen and he then played five full seasons at Highfield Road, four in the top flight.

He made 171 appearances for City, netting twice.


MICKY GYNN



An FA Cup winner with the Sky Blues, Gynn was inducted into the Posh Hall of Fame when we played against them last season at the ABAX Stadium.

Gynn spent ten-years at Highfield Road, all of them in the top flight and made 241 appearances.

He also scored 32 goals for the Sky Blues, including a crucial strike in the FA semi-final win over Leeds.

But before his time with City, he started his career at Peterborough between 1979-83 and made over 150 appearances for Posh.



DANNY SWANSON



Swanson had one of his best games for Peterborough against the Sky Blues at the back end of the 2012/13 campaign.

After leaving Posh in 2013, Swanson signed a two-year deal with Coventry City.

The Scot was hampered by injuries during his time with the Sky Blues and he made 18 appearances.

He now plays for Hearts after signing there in the summer.
