Saturday's game is massive says Thorn

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that Saturday's away game at fellow Championship struggler's Nottingham Forest is now a massive game.

With Forest losing on Tuesday night and City beating Leeds United, City have leapfrogged Forest in the Championship league table and another win, which would be the Sky Blues first on the road this campaign, would open the gap between Forest and City and would put Coventry within touching distance of a berth outside the relegation places.

Thorn said, “Saturday’s game is massive now. It’s a big psychological boost to move up a couple of places because three weeks ago we were on the bottom looking up and six points away from the second from bottom team. 

“We have got a lot of the teams in the bottom eight coming up and the majority of them are at home, so it’s a massive chance for us. It was a big, big win against Leeds and our home form is good with four wins from our last five in the league and we should have had something from the Ipswich game as well.

“We have got to back those results up with points on the road now and we’ve got to win away from home some time, so it’s a big game on Saturday and we’ll go there and have a right go.”

Coventry City fans have bought up over 1000 tickets for the trip to Nottingham and advanced tickets are still available by calling 0871 226 1980. Tickets can also be bough  at the City Ground on the day.
