VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "Being back in the city of Coventry is going to be massive for them and I can only seem them climbing the table as the season progresses. They have some quality in their ranks and they like to play but we're going there looking to build on an excellent result and performance last Saturday and certainly looking forward to the game."

Coventry boss Steven Pressley, pictured): "They have gone through an indifferent period. John Gregory has completely restructured the squad and I expect a difficult, well organised Crawley side, and, like any league game this season, another tough test.”They’re coming here on the back of a good result so they’ll be confident.

This will be the fifth meeting between the teams, all of which have been in League One. Reds have won both home encounters 2-0 (April 2013) and 3-2 (August 2013).

Last season, at Northampton, we came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 thanks to goals from Jamie Proctor and Andy Drury.
