Coventry City entertain Championship leaders Southampton on Saturday in the FA Cup and in form goal keeper Joe Murphy is hoping to get back to winning ways again after a narrow defeat to high flying West Ham last Monday.

Southampton visited The Ricoh early in November where they went on to win 4-2, but being given a scare by lowly Coventry who overturned a 2 goal lead to draw level before going on to concede two late goals. Platt and Jutkiewicz were City's scorers on that day.

Southampton have suffered a dip in form in recent weeks, losing 1-0 to Bristol City and 3-0 to Brighton over the Christmas period while Coventry have enjoyed their Christmas beating Brighton 2-0 and Bristol City 1-0 at home but losing 1-0 at West Ham.

Murphy told the Sky Blues Player,  "I think it will be a good way of getting back to winning ways as the game in the league was quite

"It will be a really good test for us as they are a good side and these are the sort of teams we need to be playing to improve our quality further.

"It is the biggest cup competition in the world and every kid wants to play in the FA Cup so it is one to look forward to."
