Barnsley come to the Ricoh Arena (weather permitting) this weekend to face a Coventry City side who, unusually for the Sky Blues, are something of a bogey club.

The two sides will be meeting for the 10th in the Championship since City’s relegation in 2001 and so far Barnsley have managed just two draws in nine games, one of which came in the corresponding fixture last season when Elliott Ward converted a controversial late penalty to deny the Tykes all three points.

The Sky Blues, who have scored four goals against the South Yorkshiremen on four separate occasions this decade, won 2-0 at Oakwell early in the season but face a team rejuvenated by new manager Mark Robins this Saturday.
