The Opposition View - Coventry

The Opposition View - Coventry
With great thanks to the Vital Coventry Ed, we ask a few questions on his club and Saturday's game...

------------------------------------------------------------

1) Now we`re half way through the season, what are your hopes and expectations for the rest of it?

Avoiding relegation is the only hope we have and it's looking more unlikely as the weeks go by.

2) Who are the player/s to look out for?

Gary McSheffrey has been in much better form recently and loan signing Alex Nimely has also given us more of a cutting edge up front.

3) What`s your current opinion with Andy Thorn? Do you have sympathy for him at the moment?

Thorn has done a decent job in the circumstances given the players he lost in the summer and the poor management of the club in general but he has faced some criticism for being stuck to a diamond formation which has been ok at home but produced terrible results away.

4) If you could have any player from the Championship, who would it be and why?

Marlon King to come back from Birmingham. His loss has been massive.

5) If you could offload any player from your team, who would it be and why?

Goalkeeper Joe Murphy has come in for plenty of stick this season but was always going to find Keiren Westwood a hard act to follow.

6) What's your prediction for the game?

So many of City's away games have ended in narrow defeats this season it's hard to see anything other than 2-1 to the Royals!
