Coventry City vs. Leyton Orient

Ricoh Arena

20th April 2013

15:00

Off to Cov - Coventry (A)

Orient head up to the West Midlands for their final away game of the season as take on the Sky Blues of Coventry, which could be one of the last games to be played at the Ricoh Arena.

The O`s still have the faintest of hopes for the play-offs whilst Steven Pressley`s men are playing for pride as they look to begin to build for the 2013/14 League 1 season.

OrientVital previews ahead of tomorrow`s game.

Vital Preview

Coventry City Team News:

Blair Adams could be named on the substitutes bench for the Sky Blues as he slowly makes his return from a knee injury which he suffered in February.

Gary McSheffrey could also move his way back into the squad after missing out on the last two matches.

Player to watch: Carl Baker

Coventry City`s captain has been one of their outstanding players this season. He led the side from their own terrible start all the way to edge of the playoffs before the club were penalised for financial problems off the pitch.

His 15 goals from 53 appearances have made him one of the main goal getters for the Sky Blues and the O`s will have to be on guard to stop the midfielder from creating havoc.

Leyton Orient Team News:

The O`s are still without defensive trio Mathieu Baudry, Scott Cuthbert and Elliott Omozusi.

In terms of attacking options Charlie MacDonald is expected to be fit despite suffering a hamstring complaint against MK Dons, whilst David Mooney is unlikely to feature as he suffers from an ankle problem.

Player to watch: Martin Rowlands

Like a lot of the current O`s squad Rowlands`s contract is soon to expire and the Irishman will be hoping to convince Slade he is worth keeping on.

The 34-year old joined in September and has added an experienced head to the midfield area as the O`s began to slowly turn around their woeful start.

With Anthony Griffth, Jimmy Smith and Romain Vincelot futures up in the air, Rowlands will need to keep impressing if he is to stay.

Match Facts & Stats

In the reverse fixture at Brisbane Road in October Coventry were the winners, as David McGoldrick`s eighth minute strike was enough to separate the sides.

In terms of the overall record when the two teams meet, it is Coventry who unsurprisingly have the better record. Cov have won 20 of the 43 games played between both sides, with the O`s only successful in 10 of those matches.
