FOOTBALL: SKY BLUES: TERRACE VERDICT; GAME ON: How YOU the fans, think the big game will go.
THIS article is dedicated to the supporters who've pointed their Sky Blue charabancs due north three times in the last eight days, only to be subjected to highway robbery by impostors masquerading as Coventry City.
950 miles travelled, three goals for, nine against, one point taken, talk about the road to hell. Not for them pampered overnight hotel accommodation or luxury coach travel.The side that takes the field against Reading should sweat blood in giving the performance and victory that these travelling fans truly deserve. But they won't.
Score prediction: Reading by two clear goals.
ATTACK is the best form of defence and we have to get at Reading's mean defence quicker and more directly.
Andy Morrell and Eddie Johnson need good service. I would drop Stern John who does not look committed or interested.
I would have Whingy in for Carey. In midfield I would have Doyle and Hughes with Ricketts and Barrett on the wings with McSheffrey, Suffo and Gudjonsson on the bench.
Score prediction: A competitive 2-2 draw.
WE WILL need100 per cent effort today if we hope to get a result in what will be another tough game against high flyers Reading.
To say we have been poor recently is an understatement and things need to improve sooner rather than later. I hope Stern John has enjoyed his 'rest' and can show the fans why we bothered to pay any money for him.
I'd like to see Deloumeaux get a start and hope we play a 4 4 2 formation. I still can't see us winning though.
Score prediction: More errors and a 3-1 defeat.
