The City boss has also backed Adam Armstrong to get back on the goal-scoring trail ahead of the Chesterfield game tomorrow...

Coventry City Tony Mowbray has urged the City faithful to back their team in numbers ahead of the Chesterfield game tomorrow.

The Sky Blues play just one home game this month against the in-form Spireites side who currently sit in 7th position in the League One table, two points behind the Sky Blues.

Dean Saunders' side have won two out of their three away games in League One whilst the Sky Blues are unbeaten at home, claiming two victories and one draw.

Ahead of the fixture tomorrow, the City boss has admitted he expects an entertaining encounter with the Spireties expected to play attacking football.

Mowbray said: "They've got lots of strengths, they're a good team. They've got plenty of good footballers who like to play attacking football.

"They finished in the play-off positions last year and even though they've lost a few players, they've added some quality in the summer and have started really well.

"I expect a good football match, an entertaining one. They like to expand and use the space on the pitch, and try and pass through the opposition.

"We're looking forward to it. Hopefully, we'll have a solid support behind us once again as that big bank of supporters make a difference. The team really feel the support so hopefully everybody who has been turning up so far will do so again."

The Sky Blues head to Bury for the final game of the month before a busy October schedule which sees City play seven games in the month.

Mowbray has reiterated the importance of a positive result against Chesterfield and has backed Adam Armstrong to get back on the goal trail.

He added: "They don't get everybody back behind the ball away from home and actually like to come and play which is good to see. 

"Football is about the fine margins, especially at this level so we need to make sure we're taking our chances when they come along.

"Let's hope it's a day where Adam Armstrong finds his goal-scoring touch again and we get a good positive result we can take forward into the next game.

"We need to keep giving our home supporters a day to enjoy and a day to remember as we need to make sure they keep coming as it is a huge influence on our season."
