The Sky Blues boss is currently preparing his side for one of the biggest challenges this season at the Ricoh Arena...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray is already setting his sights on Tuesday's huge game against Walsall, according to the Coventry Telegraph.

The Sky Blues are currently preparing for next Tuesday's Midlands Derby against Walsall which will see the two promotion hopefuls come head-to-head.

It look set to be another big crowd at the Ricoh Arena for the Tuesday showdown with over 15,000 projected due to strong sales this week.

Mowbray hopes his side can protect their 'proud home record' against the Saddlers, with City the only team in all four divisions to be unbeaten at home during the 2015/16 season.

The City boss said: “We’ll need to be at our best next Tuesday because we’re facing a tough game against a really good side who have shown better consistency than us in winning football matches.

“Although we haven’t been losing too often we’ve drawn a few too many recently and we need to be at it that night otherwise we’ll get punished.

“On the other hand, to beat them would obviously be a huge fillip for us and we’ve got a proud home record we want to preserve so I’ve no doubt the players will know exactly what they need to do.”
