Hopefully Fleck is fit, but apparently Bigi played well on Tuesday, so it isn't a full disaster if he isn't.

I expect us to get beat. We still are error prone at the back. I'm just hoping it is t embarrassing.

How is Ferguson doing in charge? Always felt he was a crap manager living off his name personally. Significant upgrade on Dickov or not Donny fans?

A massive improvement on Dickov, the football is better to watch even when we lose. I can't overstate just how bad Dickov was. As for Butler there is signs of improvement but then he looks as if he's shed a stone in weight, not surprising given that under Dickov we didn't do any training. It's hard to say how good a manager Fergie is but what he has done already is light years better than what we had.

I cannot see us losing at home at the moment.

3-0 City.

I have a bad feeling about this one, it's in my DNA after supporting Cov for nearly fifty years.
I just think we are due a slip up, and Donny are improving so a 2-3 away win.
Once this loss is out the way we can go on another ten match unbeaten run

Me too, I am never too confident of a Coventry win.

The last game I remember our fans being so confident of a win in was probably Blackpool and they held us to a draw so I really don't know

Was sloppy and flat today from us, could have got away it if we didn't gift Doncaster two goals but didn't really deserve to win.

These days will happen, 11 games unbeaten and top of the league still so put in perspective, another decent day at the office.

Well I didn't feel confident about today and for the first time in ages I got something right.
It did sound like we were very flat and Fleck lost the ball in silly places twice to aid their goals, plus our keeper had a bad day at the office.

All in all I'm happy with the point as Donny dfinitely deserved at least a point. Onwards and upwards and two weeks for the lads to recoup i time for Sheff Utd away,which is another tough game

I don't know if we deserved to win but we should have won. We had enough good chances and the goals we conceded were gifts, so was Flecks but that's 2-1 in the lucky goal count!

I'm not too disappointed though, Donny have been in good form recently and it just wasn't our day. We're still top and unbeaten!

Your first was fortunate in that the block by Butlet fell straight to Armstrong. On the balance of play I think a point was fair. From our point of view it was piss poor refereeing and Tyson was unlucky that the crossbar stopped a deserved hatrick

We need to finish games of like these. The amount of times Kent, Murphy and Armstrong counter attack and fail to score is a problem at times.

Donny were decent and deserved a point. They set out a well worked game plan to stop our pace.

My thought on Coventry is that you are extremely dangerous going forward but a bit suspect at the back. I can see why your up at the top but the worry will be when Armstrong goes in January, can Mowbray pull another one in and address the defence? If he does you are certainties for promotion.

I agree, which is why we need to put games to bed. When we need to defend, we can, it was only a month ago we went 5 games without conceding. The problem is we don't seem to be able to defend and score goals.

In terms of Armstrong, there is a good chance he will stay. If I was him I would stay and get a promotion and a top scorer record on his CV at 19.

The state Newcastle are in, I doubt letting him stay on loan when he's scoring as he is albeit in L1, their fans would not be happy and trust me I think Newcastle fans are the most fickle easy turning ones around.
