Adrian Heath continues his spell in charge of the Sky Blues with a tough home fixture against Cardiff City on Saturday.
The Bluebirds have recovered well from a poor run of form by winning their last three, with Michael Chopra back to his best up front.
Defender Roger Johnson told the official Cardiff City website: ‘It’s another big one. They aren’t doing as well as they would like, so hopefully for us it’s the right time to play them.
‘We’ll go there and try to keep our run going, although have no illusions of an easy match. We’re preparing as we do every week and will aim to go there with all guns blazing.’

Goalkeeper Andy Marshall is recovering well from a knee operation.
‘I had hoped to be fit for the game at Sunderland but it just came too soon for me,’ said the 31-year-old.
‘But if I get a full week of training in then I can start looking at the Cardiff game.’
