Preview: Coventry City

4 April 2014

MK Dons will be out to make it five consecutive away successes when they take on Coventry City at Sixfields on Saturday.

Karl Robinson’s men have been in fine form on their travels of late, recording victories over Oldham Athletic, Swindon Town, Notts County and Stevenage, the latter coming courtesy of a thrilling 3-2 comeback.
The Sky Blues, sitting four places and six points below the Dons in 13th, go into the game at their temporary home on the back of a three-game unbeaten run.
Karl Robinson – speaking to MK Dons Player

“To be deducted the amount of points they were and still be mid-table is testament to Coventry as a club -  they’ve done wonderfully well this season.

“They’ve obviously got some good players because if you gave them the 10 points back then they’d be right back in the mix, so we know how difficult it’s going to be.

“I went to watch them on Tuesday and they put a good performance in with a number of important players missing, most of which are going to return.

“We feel we’ve prepared this week the best we can and we feel we can go their full of confidence with a game-plan.”
Steven Pressley – speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire

“MK Dons will be a difficult test for us. They're currently looking to get into the play-offs so will be highly motivated to win.

“We've still got a lot of work to do this season. We need to aim to pick up points in every game we play. If we can stay unbeaten until the end of the season, that would be a great achievement.

“The six-year average for relegated sides in League 1 is 48 points but the way this season has gone, and the form some of the sides below us in the table have shown, I don't think that will be enough.

Team news

Izale McLeod and Stephen Gleeson could both return after calf injuries, but Ryan Hall will miss out due to an ankle problem.

Ben Reeves (ankle), Darren Potter (Achilles) and Lee Hodson (hip) are unavailable for the remainder of the season.
Coventry have Callum Wilson, Dan Seaborne and Jordan Clarke fit again, while John Fleck is in contention after serving a two-game suspension. 

However, Franck Moussa is a doubt with a back complaint.
