Coventry City’s Gary McSheffrey feels that home game against Birmingham City on Saturday will be a dog-fight.
Speaking at the club’s weekly press conference, McSheffrey said to Sky Blue Player: "Playing against an old club is always nice but its going to be a dogfight because we both have something to fight for.
"Birmingham fans have always took a good following away from home, they're vocal but they can put pressure on them to perform so there's going to be a certain amount presure and a great atmosphere.
"The point against Crystal Palace makes this game even more important."
Speaking about Marlon King who is set to make a return to the Ricoh Arena, McSheffrey said: "I'm sure fans appreciated what Marlon did when he was here and yes he is coming back but there's 22 players out there so its not all about him.
"Birmingham have a team full of good players so we have to work hard to make sure we keep them in check.
"It would be great psychologically if we can get out of the bottom three this weekend. Things can turn, we just need to make sure we are there to take advantage of it."
