Coventry City welcome Millwall to the Coventry Building Society Arena on Sunday afternoon for an early kick-off in the Sky Bet Championship.
Meet the Lions:
Millwall arrive at the Coventry Building Society Arena looking to build a gap between themselves and the bottom three.
The Lions are currently five points above the drop zone and are on a five-game (four in the Championship) winless run, losing three of those four.
Joe Edwards' side are one of few side in the Championship to have picked up more points away from home (17) than at home (16).
Ryan Leonard is the man to watch at Millwall, with Capser de Norre, Zian Flemming and Joe Bryan also impressing for the London outfit.
Brooke Norton-Cuffy will be a familiar face to City fans, as he makes his first return to the Coventry Building Society Arena since helping the Club to a Play-Off Final last term.
Mark Robins quotes:
“They’re an aggressive team, they’re a big side with quality and they’ve added some players in the window who will improve them and make them stronger in quality and depth.
“Tom Bradshaw was on the bench the other day he was leading the line for them regularly and he’s a good player, although Kevin Nisbett has picked up an injury and he will be out for a while.
“Michael Obafemi and Japhet Tanganga have come in on loan and they’re good players and they have some good players in their ranks anyway.
“Joe is a really good coach, and he has a good pedigree. Adi knows him really well and they are different under Joe then they were with Gary, but equally good.
“We’ve lost Jamie Allen, and he will miss a period of time. He’s in for surgery today and that was a major disappointment, but when you lose one another, one gets an opportunity.
“He is a key player for us, as they all are so when players come in you expect them to make an impact and have an impact and they are doing that and that’s what you want.
“I’m told he will be out for six weeks. he will have some titanium platers put in his cheekbone to hold it all together and it sounds horrific, and it is horrific so he will be a while and it needs to heel, when that’s happened, he will be able to come back.”
