Coventry City look to steal a march on their relegation rivals as they host Leyton Orient on Wednesday night at the Ricoh Arena.

The Sky Blues could be six points clear of the drop zone ahead of a busy schedule of games on Good Friday.

And Tony Mowbray`s men will be confident after chalking up a third successive away victory at Peterborough on Saturday, following which a number of fringe players impressed in the Under-21 fixture at Ipswich.

Vital Quotes:

In upbeat mood after a good few days, Mowbray said on Tuesday: ‘We’ve got our preparation sorted. We played a bit of head tennis yesterday and we’ll do a bit of tactical work today, but we’ll walk through it as you’ve got to look after them at this stage in the season.’

Coventry City Team News:

Weekend goalscorer Blair Turgott started for the Under-21`s at Ipswich Town on Monday night alongside the returning James Maddison with both players being substituted early in the second half.

Marcus Tudgay departed early at Peterborough and is likely to miss out while neither Maddison or Reda Johnson are likely to be risked.

Player to watch: Blair Turgott

Will he get to start the game or does Mowbray still see him as an impact substitute?

Leyton Orient Team News:

Midfielder Lloyd James made his return from a serious leg injury as a late substitute in the 3-1 win against Port Vale at the weekend although manager Fabio Liverani has cautioned against too much expectation of the player, saying: ‘It’s his first game back so we can’t consider him the saviour.”
