"We've played five games at home and the form is encouraging, but we're not getting carried away." Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

The Sky Blues boss talks about Blackpool's 'positive vibe' and our home form here...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray is mindful of Blackpool's recent run of form ahead of tomorrow's game at the Ricoh Arena.



Neil McDonald's side have won their last three games in a row before they had last weekend off after their game with Bradford was postponed.

Mowbray is wary of the threat they pose after a difficult start to the season and believes that the Tangerines have a positive vibe travelling to the Ricoh Arena.

He said: "I think Neil McDonald's an experienced guy, not necessarily as a manager but as a footballer and being with Big Sam.

"He knows how to set a team up, there's been a lot of turmoil and they have a lot of new faces, not necessarily household names but good footballers.

"They've won the last three and are headed in the right direction. Hopefully we can ask some questions of them other teams haven't over recent weeks.

"We're mindful of their positive vibe but we have one of our own after our last two wins."

The Sky Blues go into the game not only off the back of two consecutive wins, but remain unbeaten at home.

Mowbray believes the form at the Ricoh Arena is encouraging but is not getting carried away just yet after five home games.

"We've played five games and encouraging is the best word to describe it so far rather than getting carried away," the manager explained.

"The signs are encouraging and we need to sustain it. Game after game after game we've found consistency at home.

"That huge bank of fans in the stand is a huge benefit, I've been a football fan all my life and having people around you in the crowd feels like a proper crowd with the passion and emotion of football.

"We have found ways of winning at home so far this season and hopefully with the backing of our supporters we can find a performance that keeps us rolling on."
