The Opposition's Manager - Mark Robins

Mark Robins has been in charge of Coventry since 2017. He guided them to promotion from League Two in 2018 and then got them promoted back to the Championship in 2020. They also won the EFL Trophy on 2017. He succesfully kept them in the Championship last season.

He had previously been manager of Coventry between 2012 and 2013.

He has also held managerial roles at Rotherham, Barnsley, Huddersfield and Scunthorpe.

As a player, he was best known for scoring a goal for Manchester United in the FA Cup that reportedly saved Sir Alex Ferguson's job in 1990.

Viktor Gyokeres has already scored three league goals this season.

I think we’ll win. We’ve got the feel good factor from yesterday and I think Coventry’s position in the table is deceptive. They’ve got 4W and 2L but played and beaten the teams in 15th, 19th, 22nd and 24th.

1100 fans is fantastic. I can imagine ticket sales saw a big boost yesterday :ayatollah:

Cardiff City fans can pay on the day and we have been given at least 3,000 tickets :bluebird:


Only 4th away game of the season and we have won 2 and drawn 1, Bluebirds undefeated :bluebird: :bluebird: :bluebird:


I can see massive away support for this, only up the road and many of our fans not been there :thumbright: :thumbright: :bluebird: :bluebird:

We also have a big following from Abergavenny, Monmouth right up to the Midlands :bluebird:

Think a draw but I said that about Forest.
Think our starting 11 needs changing and would like to see Colwill from the off,imagine him on one wing and Giles on the other.
Come on Bloooobirds win another football match.

Does anyone know if the red button works if you are watching the match on a laptop through sky go on the red button. Have sky sports but having problems with a communal aerial which won't be fixed until after Wednesday. Never done the red button on a lap top but presume you can.

It didn't when I last tried that at the start of last season, but they may have updated it now so you can.

Tough game tonight, Coventry have made a good start and rightly the bookies' favourite.

But it's a game we should look to be winning.

3-1 Cardiff is my prediction :bluebird:

I know they have said something about it works through the TV (obviously) and then if you're watching through the Sky Sports App.

Not sure about on the laptop - my guess is if it's Sky Go you're using on the laptop then no but always worth trying!

Mark Robins will be without skipper Liam Kelly as he continues his comeback from injury.

He played 45 minutes for the Sky Blues’ under-23s last week and upped that to 71 minutes against Millwall’s development side on Monday afternoon.

Corner comes to nothing and Coventry hit back.

Gyokeres again is the man they look for.

He's forced to pull back from the byline and feed Maatsen, who's low ball across goal is eventually worked out to Dabo on the right of the penalty area. His ball is poor and Vaulks mops up.

Was a simple task of tackling him or blocking shot but made no effort to do either... plus cane came from a messed up throwin ffs put it in middle ... they obviously know about our slow defence as keeping 3 up at corners ect

Lovely cross from Ng towards the far post is punched away from Moore.

Ball eventually comes to Ng again and looks to dink a half-volley back towards goal, but it's blocked and goes out for a corner.

Comes to nothing as Moore eventually claims.
