PREVIEW: COVENTRY CITY (A)

10 February 2015

The Iron head to Coventry on Tuesday hoping to extend their unbeaten away run in League One to nine matches, while bouncing back from Saturday’s home defeat to Oldham.

Mark Robins’ side fell to a 1-0 defeat to the Latics thanks to Carl Winchester’s late strike which proved enough to sink the Iron and leaves them in 18th place.

Coventry also fell to a 1-0 defeat at the weekend, losing 1-0 to promotion chasing Preston, which left them two places below Scunthorpe in 20th.

Steven Pressley’s side head into the game with no win in their last five and out of the drop zone by just three points.

Luke Williams, who was on loan at the Iron previously this season, could feature for the hosts after his deadline day loan move to the Sky Blues.

Mark Robins may look to shuffle his pack to freshen up his squad ahead of the trip to the Ricoh Arena after Saturday’s defeat to Oldham.

Kevin van Veen came off the bench in that game and could be in line to play a part once again, either from the start or as a substitute.

The trip to Coventry will see manager Mark Robins and also defender Jordan Clarke come up against their former club.

The Iron won the reverse fixture between the sides, emerging with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Paddy Madden and Lyle Taylor, with Frank Nouble scoring for the Sky Blues who also had Reda Johnson dismissed.

The last trip to the Ricoh Arena saw the Iron win all three points, with Leon Clarke’s brace securing a 2-1 win back in the 2012/13 season.

Out of a total of 13 matches played between the two sides both sides have an equal record, with both sides winning five matches and a further three draws between the two teams.
