PREVIEW: Coventry City v Boreham Wood

The Sky Blues face Boreham Wood at the Ricoh...

1 December 2017

The Sky Blues will be looking to get themselves into the hat for the third round of the FA Cup when they welcome Boreham Wood to the Ricoh Arena.

The Wood came from behind to beat SkyBet League One side Blackpool to beat a league side for the first time in their 70 year history in the first round thanks to goals from Blair Turgott and Dan Holman.

Coventry on the other hand will be facing their second non-league side of the campaign. Two goals from Jordan Ponticelli gave City an easy victory over Maidenhead United in the last round, as side who sit seven places below Boreham Wood int he National League.

Tony Andreu and Jodi Jones both remain on the sidelines for this one as they continue their long fight back from ACL injuries. Liam Kelly is also a doubt thanks to the same heel injury that kept him out of last weekend's draw with Crawley.

The Opponent

Boreham Wood have two former Coventry City stars in their first team squad. Blair Turgott made three appearances for the Sky Blues in 2015 after joining from West Ham United, scoring once.

Shaun Jeffers started his career with City, making 6 appearances in the Championship before being realsed in 2010. The foward found the net 21 times in 36 appearances for Chelsmford City last season before making the switch to Meadow Park.

Bruno Andrade could be a key player for the Wood on Sunday. The former Queens Park Rangers midfielder has scored twelve goals already this season from attacking midfield.
