Stoke vs Coventry preview

Midlands rivals Coventry travel to the Britannia for the televised clash with the Potters on Monday evening. The Sky Blues are currently sitting above the Potters in eleventh place on 22 points and pose a sterner test than the poor Norwich team that were thrashed 5-0 a week last Saturday.

Vital Quotes:

Ricardo Fuller seems to be hitting the rich vein of form that was promised when he signed from Southampton at the start of the season. He now has six goals to his credit and believes that he is getting close to being 100% fit: 'I've just started to play ok and hopefully I can continue to build on that by continuing to work hard.'

Stoke City Team News:

Stoke should name another unchanged line-up from the game against Norwich and last week's midweek defeat at Leicester as long as Danny Higginbotham has recovered from a thigh strain that he picked up at the Walkers Stadium. If not, Clint Hill is poised to replace him in defence.

Player to watch: Lee Hendrie

The most influential player in the team, he narrowly missed out on the award for 'Championship Player of the Month' which was awarded to West Brom player, Kamara. Hendrie should be relishing the opportunity to show a Sky TV audience that he is back on form.

Coventry City Team News:

Former Stoke players Marcus Hall and Clive Clarke (on loan from Sunderland and making his second trip in less than a month) will be joined by the ex-Vale player, Chris Birchall for their visit to the Potteries.

Player to watch: Stern John

The Sky Blues' top scorer with four goals since the departure of Gary McSheffrey to Birmingham City.
