Coventry are ninth in the League 2 form table, based on results in their last 10 games. They have won four of those but since beating Grimsby 4-0 three weeks ago their results have tailed off with a 1-1 draw at Newport County followed by a 6-2 home thrashing by Yeovil and a 2-1 defeat at Notts County last Saturday.
Mansfield and Swindon's form has been worse with the Stags winning once and Swindon just twice in their last ten. Both drew in midweek so Coventry remain in 7th, the final play-off place, a point ahead of their main rivals and they also have a game in hand.
Striker Marc McNulty (pictured) is the Sky Blues' dangerman. The Scot has scored 21 goals this season in league and cup and netted their equaliser in the 1-1 draw when the sides met at the Ricoh in November.
Sky Blues boss Mark Robins is one of the most experienced managers in League 2. In ten years in management he has managed Coventry twice, taking charge for six months in September 2012 before he moved on to Huddersfield.
Robins, who played over 400 games during his career including a famous spell with Manchester United, has also been in charge of Rotherham United, Barnsley and Scunthorpe.
Coventry will have defender Jordan Willis available on Saturday after injury. He came through a run-out in the under-23s on Monday having been out since the end of February when he was sent off in a 1-1 draw against Mansfield.
