Coventry City take their recent good run of form into Easter Monday’s home game against Yeovil Town on the back of a hard-earned point at Newport on Good Friday that kept the Sky Blues in the play-off places while ensuring that their hopes of automatic promotion live on.
The trip to South Wales, in difficult conditions, and something of a 90-minute battering from the Exiles may lead Mark Robins to reshuffle his side for the return to CV6 and a meeting with a Yeovil team who should be safe from relegation but will want one or two more points on the board to make sure.
Darren Way’s Glovers have been out of action for over two weeks due to postponements so their current form is slightly hard to judge. In March they lost at home to Newport but did not concede in two away games at Exeter and Colchester from which they took four points.
City, however, look to be approaching this kind of potential banana skin game with more confidence than earlier in the season when they suffered a number of surprise defeats including the reverse fixture at Huish Park when goals from Rhys Browne and Olufela Olomola secured three points for the hosts.
