PREVIEW: Coventry City v Swindon Town - The Sky Blues welcome the Robins at the Ricoh Arena

Mark Robins' side look to get back amongst the automatic places in SkyBet League Two..

19 January 2018

Venue: Ricoh Arena

Competition: SkyBet League Two

Date: Saturday January 20th, 2018

Kick-off: 3pm

The Sky Blues welcome Swindon Town to the Ricoh Arena with both sides sitting joint on points in SkyBet League Two.

Swindon will be looking to make it four wins on the bounce after turning over Notts County, Forest Green and Barnet since Christmas. 

The Robins remain without Chris Hussey who last week had an operation on a hernia that has kept him out for huge chunks of the season.

Amine Linganzi and Timi Elsnik will also both miss out as they continue their recoveries from long-term injuries.

The Sky Blues could name Peter Vincenti on the bench for tomorrow. The former Rochdale man has been out for the last month with a knee injury but has trained as normal for the late part of the week and Mark Robins has said that he could make a surprise return to the matchday squad.

Liam Kelly, likely to return to training on Monday, Jodi Jones, and Tony Andreu all remain sidelined.

The Opponents

Top scorer, Luke Norris has scored eleven in his last 21 games up front for the Robins, followed in the club's scoring charts by Keshi Anderson, who Sky Blues boss Mark Robins has labelled a real threat.

Swindon's side will feature just one familiar faces for Sky Blue fans. Reice Charles-Cook only left the Ricoh for the County Ground in the summer after three seasons at Coventry. Charles-Cook has fought Lawrence Vigouroux all season for the number one spot and after showing his talents during a Vigourouzx suspension the former Arsenal man has kept his place.

On-loan from Sheffield United, Chris Hussey made 54 appearances for the Sky Blues before moving back to his boyhood club AFC Wimbledon in 2013. Since then he has featured anywhere up the left channel for Burton Albion, Bury, Sheffield United and now the Robins.
