Last updated : 15 November 2011 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has admitted that he is looking forward to the visit of West Ham United to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

This will be the Hammers first visit to City's home of the last six years for a league fixture and Sam Allardyce's side will be back by a 6,313 strong following after selling all their allocation.

Speaking to Sky Blue Player, Thorn said: "We know it's going to be a tough game but this is exactly the sort of match that I love to be involved with and I know the players do too.

"They have still got a lot of Premier League players and it's up to us to go out and match up to them and get a result.

"West Ham are bringing a lot of supporters but I know our fans will respond to that because they have been terrific all season.

"The players have mentioned a few times this season just how good the support has been and how it drives them on. It should make for a cracking atmosphere on Saturday and hopefully a great occasion at the Ricoh."

Tickets for the game are on-sale at both the ticket office at the ground and at City Central in Town, as well as via the phone and on-line.

If you are planning on-going to the game, you are advised to get a ticket before the day of the match to avoid paying extra.
