The Sky Blues travel to Huish Park as they look to return to winning ways against Yeovil Town...

After a narrow defeat against Newport County at the Ricoh Arena, Mark Robins takes his side to face the Glovers, who themselves have had a mixed start to the League Two campaign.

With a total of 22 goals across just three games, Yeovil have been the entertainers of the division so far.

Robins said: "They're all tough games. We're away from home, they've just had a decent win against Accrington Stanley and they score goals and concede goals. They're a little bit difficult to work out at the moment.

"We certainly know what they've got and what threats they have. Whilst we acknowledge that we just want to get back out there and play. We've just come off the back of a defeat so it is a chance for us to claim a victory away from home and keep the momentum going.

"We're putting the final touches to the planning and we're looking forward to getting onto the pitch and seeing if we can pick three points up."

Mark also provided an update on Steve Taylor. The Sky Blues' Assistant Manager was taken ill after training last week after suffering a bleed on the brain.

"He is getting better. He is at home and needs that time to fully recover. We all wish him a speedy recovery and hope he gets back in as quickly as possible without forcing the issue.

"He is being looked after, he is actually in good spirits. He has a live stream of the game sorted so he is all set really. I've known him for a very long time, he was the best man at my wedding so it was a shock to us all,"

He added: "Adi Viveash is thoughtful, studious and understands the game. He commands respect from where he has been. He has been really respectful coming in to help at the time we needed some assistance.
