Coventry prepare to entertain Walsall at Highfield Road Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sky Blues are clearly on top, having won 10 and lost only 2 of the 16 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highfield Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in October 2002, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Division One match.
