Transfer Front Quiet As Boothroyd Prepares For Blades

Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd has admitted that it is all quiet on the transfer front as he prepares his side for the next game, a home tie against Sheffield United on Saturday.

The Blades travel to The Ricoh with their new manager, former Coventry City boss Mickey Adams and Boothroyd is busy plotting how to make his return to the club a miserable one. Adams returns to Coventry almost four years to the day after he was sacked as Coventry manager.

Boothroyd admitted to the CT: "There is no (transfer) news at the moment. The most important thing is we focus on the next game and the players have got to make sure they apply themselves every day to get picked to face Sheffield."

"It is about the here and now and Sheffield United who have just got a new manager. Micky has obviously just gone in there and he'll be renewing acquaintances coming back to Coventry as a player and manager so it will be an occasion for him," said his opposite number, but for us, we have got to make sure we play the game. They have got players who can score goals."

"They are a team who just missed out on the play offs last year and have regularly been at the top of the Championship and are very dangerous on their day. So we have to respect that and respect the fact that Micky has gone in and will want to change things himself, so it will be a tough game for us, there is no doubt about that."

"He's a guy that doesn't mince his words. I like him, he's a little battler and he wants his teams to fight and play hard, but it is a game that we are going to want to get something from and we will be looking to get three points."
