Coventry v Barnsley

Barnsley travel to Coventry tonight, this is the game in hand we've all been waiting for.

The Sky Blues are safe, have nothing to play for. Should be easy enough, right?

No. Chris Coleman's men have a point to prove to their fans and gaffer after two defensively inept displays against Plymouth Argyle and Notts Forest.

Any Barnsley fan knows we have a poor history at the Ricoh Arena, so hopefully that will be put right tonight.

Luke Steele should retain his place in goal after keeping a clean sheet against Reading at the weekend, so the stopper will face his former club.

It should be the same starting eleven for the Reds, but Simon Davey may shuffle the pack with Jamal Campbell-Ryce chomping at the bit.

City have a number of players injured, but still have enough quality to give Barnsley a good enough battle.

It should be an entertaining game, as there hasn't been a 0-0 draw between these two teams since...I don't know.

Come on you Reds!
