Having revived their play-off hopes with a battling haul of four points from two tough away fixtures, Coventry City may have had mixed feelings about the postponement of Saturday`s home game against Lincoln City.

On the one hand it represented a chance to continue that upturn in form and possibly move into the play-off places.

However the Imps arrival was due to come at the end of a tough schedule of games for Mark Robins’ side who now have a week to prepare for the visit of bottom club Barnet to the Ricoh Arena this coming weekend.

Leaders Luton Town arrive in CV6 a few days after that and Robins will be determined to avoid the classic City scenario of a good result against the Hatters on the back of a shock being administered by the Bees.

That scenario has been played out on more than a few occasions this season, defeats at Morecambe, Forest Green and Yeovil among the Sky Blues slip-ups.

Barnet are six points adrift of safety but gained a crucial away victory in their last outing, at Colchester before the weather-induced break.

They held City to a goalless draw in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, a game that may not have stayed long in the memory of those in attendance or watching live on television.
