Alan Partridge: 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. What a great song. It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday, doesn't it? You wake up in the morning, you've got to drive two and a half hours to Crawley, the players are bottlers, you've got to get a point, and you think "Sunday, bloody Sunday!".

How we should line up:

Burge

Willis
Pennington
Johnson
Stokes

Ward
Fleck

Odelusi
Maddison
JOB

The Big German

Praying for the most boring 0-0 imaginable, whilst at the same time not being surprised one bit if we lose and go down.

If Saturdays performance was anything to go by, Coventry are in real trouble. If the previous Saturdays game is anything to go by, Coventry have nothing to worry about. Come on Coventry, all we need you boys to do is not lose this game and we should be ok.

We're away, we will have a full away end to cheer the lads on. Not sure how many home fans there will be, probably 2-3k? I'd be much more worried if we were playing at home this weekend

Pennington ruled out with ankle ligament damage. A blow, but I have faith in Martin to come in and be solid.

I genuinely think because Crawley will probably have to win to stay up that'll benefit Coventry as they can counter and will be able to exploit space more easily.

That has been the basis for most of our away wins this season. When we are given time on the ball and have to break teams down, more often than not (Like on Saturday) we fail to do so, hence the poor home record.

Poor Wasps already have to travel to Coventry from London. Outer space would be difficult for them.

As posted on the relegation thread -
STICK OR TWIST?
1355 hrs on 3/5/15 - Colchester losing at home 2-0; Orient losing away 2-0; Notts County losing away 1-0; We're drawing 1-1.
Go for the win? And what do Coventry do?

A draw keeps us up regardless of other results so we will be quite content with that.

Away allocation sold out. (which I think is 1800 - depending which figures you believe)
Home seating sold out.
Only 250 home terrace tickets left (For sale to personal callers only or by phone for collection. They'll check post codes and will ask for ID).
Should be 5500 there if these figures are accurate (this is good for us, no laughing at the back)
My advice to Coventry fans is to get in to the ground early. (Although our REDS bar is open from 0930 and will I think be serving breakfast)

I see on the Coventry forum you've suggested getting in the home end. If you do, please be quiet!!

Now it is all but sold out, there is no chance of City fans in the home end.
Planning on doing what I did last year and go into REDS, to see a few familiar faces I know down in Crawley.

Any beer sold in the ground?

I think the away end has beer but I expect it will be very busy!
If the weathers ok there's plenty of room in/outside REDZ pre-match.
The forecast though is rain so it could be a bit crowded.

Was decent last season when it was red hot and the two sets of fans were outside the bar. It is supposed to be overcast on Sunday.

Game apparently sold out. Capacity is 5850 I think so it could be a record gate. Pity a lot of locals weren't there earlier in the season.
