9 February 2018

Venue: Ricoh Arena

Competition: SkyBet League Two

Date: Saturday 10th February, 2017.

Kick-off: 3pm

The Sky Blues face Accrington Stanley in SkyBet League Two infront of a bumper crowd at the Ricoh Arena as they continue their pursuit of the division's leaders.

Third place Stanley have only lost one of the last six, winning the other five, a run of form only bettered by Mansfield Town over that period.

Accy boss John Coleman has a full side to chose from for the trip. Winger, Sean McConville took a knock during Tuesday night's win over Swindon Town but should be availible.

Mark Robins' injury list was stretched even more this week when a number of the camp became ill with a virus.

Tom Davies will miss out after breaking his collar bone in last week's defeat to Forest Green Rovers. The defender was substuted early on and faces six to eight weeks on the sidelines.

The Opponents

Striker Billy Kee will be Accrington's main attacking threat on Saturday. The 27-year-old has scored 43 in 108 appearances for Stanley ever since joining form Scunthorpe United in 2015.

January loan signing Jimmy Dunne has impressed Stanley fans since joining from local side Burnley, making his professional debut in the side's 4-0 win over Chesterfield last month.

Former Shrewsbury and Barnsley midfielder Jordan Clark will also be one to keep an eye out for. The creative wideman was a regular for the Shrews in League One before stepping down last season to make 65 appearances for Stanley.
