Coventry v Tranmere Match Preview

Sunday's League One action comes as Coventry host Tranmere, with the Sky Blues looking to bounce back from a first league defeat of the season - a bruising 4-0 loss to Rotherham, while struggling Tranmere are down in 20th, only three points clear of the relegation zone having won just two of their 11 games so far on their return to the third tier.

These two sides last met in the 2013-14 season, in which Tranmere completed a league double over Coventry, winning 5-1 away and 3-1 at home, though it was them who were relegated that year.

Coventry Team News

Coventry are required to show their bouncebackability for the first time this season, losing for the first time this season at the 11th time of asking last weekend, leaving league leaders Ipswich as the only unbeaten team remaining in League One. It was quite a spectacular and sudden collapse, too - Coventry went two goals behind within the opening 20 minutes at Rotherham, before things went from bad to worse in the second half as centre-half Kyle McFadzean was dismissed before the Millers made it four.

It was a day to forget for the backline all-round, with mistakes made by central defender Dominic Hyam and goalkeeper Marko Marosi. The keeper will retain his place but it could be a different looking defence as Liam Kelly and Michael Rose partner one another at the back, with McFadzean serving a suspension and Hyam likely to be taken out of the firing line. 6" striker Matt Godden will lead the line as usual as he looks for a fourth goal of the season.

While it's not quite 'home', St. Andrew's in Birmingham has provided a good stomping ground for Coventry so far this season - they've won five of six games on their own patch, drawing the other.

Tranmere Team News

Tranmere have struggled for results after winning the play-offs in League Two last season, and may well be in for a relegation scrap to retain their newfound third-tier status this season - they can perhaps consider themselves a little fortunate that they're only out of the bottom three by virtue of two teams in even more diabolical form than they are (Wimbledon and Southend) and another beleaguered with off-field issues (Bolton). It's just two wins and three draws from 11 games so far.

They showed some signs of life last month, drawing 2-2 with free-scoring Peterborough before going on to beat Burton 2-1, but since then they've been well-beaten by Ipswich (4-1) and Shrewsbury (0-1 on home soil). They're also particularly poor on the road: they've lost four of five games away from home so far this season, drawing the other, scoring just twice in total and conceding 12.

Left winger Connor Jenkins sits this one out after picking up a red card last weekend, while veteran striker Ishmael Miller remains sidelined, yet to appear this season. Striker Stefan Payne has a reasonable return of four goals so far; he'll continue to lead the line, but he's not quite filling the void left by last season's talisman James Norwood.
