Yet another ‘new era’ begins for Coventry City as caretaker manager Adrian Heath takes his side to Devon for a tough game against Plymouth Argyle.
Saturday’s results mean the Sky Blues are now only five points above the relegation zone and a draw at least would be very welcome.
Robert Page on Adrian Heath: ‘He’s obviously been involved with the club now for a few years and he was involved under Micky,’ he told the club’s official website.
‘He was always hands on with the training sessions and things from that point of view are not going to change so he’s got the players’ respect straight away.
‘If we can get a couple of positive results, then surely that’s going to hold him in good stead for the job.’
Plymouth Argyle Team News:
Krzystian Timar should have recovered from the throat infection that ruled him out at Norwich while new striker Rory Fallon is set to be in the squad after making a £300,000 move from Swansea City.
He said: ‘I have still got a lot to learn, and I will never stop learning until I finish. I just want to get better.
‘There is no ego with me. I will work my hardest and that’s the way I will always be.’
Player to watch: Akos Buzsaky
