Nice to have some proper football on Sunday right guys? Right? :tw:

Anyhow, both teams in form and playing well and so should make for an interesting game for the neutrals.

We have no Armstrong, Maddison, Morris, Willis or George Thomas available.

Team:

Burge

Phillips Ricketts Johnson Stokes

Vincelot Fleck

O'Brien Lameiras Murphy

Tudgay

Subs: RCC, Martin, Haynes, Thomas, DKE, Queen Lateefa, Finch

Prediction: Burton 1-3 Coventry.

Tudgay and Murphy x2

You won't win 3 1.

We don't concede 3 goals.

Apart from in the fa cup last year at Barnsley.

Got a draw written all over it

I'm always positive. Realistically, a draw would be a good result considering the players missing.

I think we would both take it. Impressed by your start this season. Delighted Armstrong is out, even our local paper carried an article on it....

Can't see anything but a Burton win here. 2-0.

Burton have had a good start to the season but its worth noting from there 5 games the 4 wins have all been against lower half opposition and there one loss was against 12th place Barnsley. They've had a really good start but haven't really been tested yet.

The exact opposite of us

What a pathetic bench we will have Sunday.

Armstrong hasn't touched the ball in the last two games, so him not playing isn't as big of a loss as it could have been. Tudgay looked good when he came on, so I am happy for him to start.

Think this will be a draw. 2-2 again.

Fair play Burton giving us an extra 300 or so.

It will be a close contest but I don't see the Brewers losing this one. Think the Sky blues will underestimate us. Should be a good atmosphere, enjoy the day out and a safe journey to and from the Pirelli stadium.

We won't underestimate you. Unlike under Pressley we actually have scouts. Mowbray will have done his homework as Jimmy Floyd did on Monday.

I'm going for 2-0 to the Albion, I expect Jimmy to have the players fired up for this and I think the big away following will actually work in our favour. All the pressure is on the Sky blues, we have nothing to fear.

We have now signed Marc-Antoine Fortune and he will be in the squad on Sunday.

It will be a really tough game but I can't wait. As long as we put in a good performance like we have all season apart from first half vs Southend, I'll be happy. I can see us losing this but anything more would be a great result!

Tony Mowbray's last visit to the Pirelli stadium was with Middlesbrough in the FA Cup when his side lost 2-1, hopeful of a similar score line today. Albion will be prepared and the big crowd(by our standards) usually see's us perform. Looking forward to the game immensely.

Burge continues to be useless, defence protected him well.

Mowbray won the tactical battle over Hasslebaink today who I'm afraid picked the wrong formation and personnel. Fair play to the Sky Blues !
