We have to look at every game in a positive manner, if we are at our best we can beat anyone in this league.” - Coventry City’s Tony Mowbray

25 March 2016

Tony Mowbray takes his side to play Peterborough this evening under the lights, with the game televised live on Sky Sports...

Mowbray’s men travel to Peterborough United on Friday evening as the Sky Blues enter the backend of the League One season, with nine games to go.

The Coventry manager has led his side to within two points of the League One promotion spots and will be hoping his side can reassert themselves within the race for a top six finish.

The Sky Blues are without top scorer Adam Armstrong as well as Jack Stephens and local lad, James Maddison who has earned his first international call up.

But Mowbray will be encouraged by the positive performances of his fledgling U21 squad and new signing Jodi Jones, who could be in contention to earn his first senior cap for the Sky Blues.

Speaking about Peterborough, Mowbray said: “We have to look at every game in a positive manner, if we are at our best we can beat anyone in this league.

“Peterborough have attacking strengths, they get a lot of men forward. They attack with pace and a lot of numbers. Their formation suits the players they have got.

“We will have to be good defensively. If we can see that threat off, we need to be able to introduce our attacking players in to the game. It will be an interesting tactical game. But we have a positive frame of mind.

“A blueprint for their club is to look at the non-league scene and pick players out, they have done that well in the past and great credit to them.”
