Whether they have new owners or are minus ten points, Coventry City have a game to play against Southampton on Saturday.

Youssef Safri and Stern John are set to play against their old club with Safri telling the Daily Echo: ‘I feel sad to see the problems they’ve got.

‘I’ve still got some good friends there on the administrative side, a few players as well and a few people around the city as well.

‘I have nice memories of them and I wish them all the best because they’ve still got a place in my heart.’

John netted a hat-trick against Hull last week and feels Saints are moving in the right direction.

‘Having done it with Birmingham and Sunderland I know this is the right style of football to get up,’ said the Trinidad & Tobago striker.

‘Southampton’s style suits me. We play football and you need to do that and show that quality to get out of this division.’
